It’s no secret that our girls love guacamole. We go through many avocados a week. One night I decided to stretch the avocados and bump up the guac nutritional profile with the addition of white beans. Somewhat a cross between a guacamole and a hummus, this thick, creamy dip is a hit in our house.
2 lightly packed cups roughly chopped/sliced ripe avocado
1 cup white beans
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2–2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
Water, to thin as desired
Place the avocado, white beans, sea salt, lemon juice, and water in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Season to taste with additional salt and/or lemon juice.
- Kick it up for the adults by stirring in one of these add-ins: a few tablespoons of a mild salsa, minced fresh parsley or cilantro, or grated garlic.
- Try pureeing in a handful or two of baby spinach (this will smooth out best in a Blendtec). It will simply intensify the
green color and you’ll have added a little extra green power!

I LOVE avocados, and this recipe looks awesome. Unfortunately, in the area where I live, avocados are crazy expensive—sometime more than $4 per avocado depending on the season. I buy and consume them as often as my budget allows. Thanks for this simple recipe!
