Study snacks are vital for surviving finals. While it's unrealistic to think that we'll craving some veggies in the library at midnight, this recipe might change that. Avocado hummus is super easy to make and contains a ton of vitamins, minerals and other healthy properties that make it an ideal snack. Chickpeas are high in fiber and full of protein and will hold you over for the next few hours of studying. Avocado has a ton of vitamins and monounsaturated fats, which promote healthy blood flow, which means a healthier brain.
1 can chickpeas
1 ripe avocado
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon salt (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon pepper (to taste)
1/2 paprika (to taste)
Dippers (carrots, cucumbers, chips, celery, etc)
1. Put chickpeas (if you want it to be smooth put in all of the chickpeas now if you want it to be a little chunky leave about 1/4 of them out) and olive oil in a food processor or blender.
2. Blend until smooth.
3. Add the spices, garlic, and avocado and blend.
4. If you left 1/4 of the chickpeas out, put them in now and blend until desired texture (if it is too thick, add a little more olive oil).
5. Put in a bowl and top with a little olive oil and serve!
