Anyone else here big fans of party dips? Me too! Every single time I’m at a party or a potluck, I always get so excited whenever there’s a plethora of dips to choose from! Over the years, however, I’ve realized that I’m most drawn to two kinds of dips: hummus and anything with avocado! My husband asked me once after a 4th of July party we were attending, if I’d rather have one or the other. I’m sure that was a trick question, because there’s no way I can choose between the two!

After this realization, we’ve decided to start a tradition to always bring TWO kinds of dips to a party, never just one! And… I’m so happy to say that each time we bring our famous creamy avocado dip and our hummus dip, people rave about it and always ask for our recipes!

So if you’re looking for delicious party dips that are packed with protein and healthy fats, look no more! My favorite creamy avocado and hummus recipes pack massive flavor and are now yours to try! Why choose one when you can have both? 🙂
