Guacamole + Hummus = Spicy Avocado Hope Hummus
which is always in my fridge. It is my favorite healthy snack and I’m a bit addicted. When I was invited to Hope Hummus factory and headquarters to a Chickpea Party and learn more about them I said YES!
Right here in Boulder, CO the company was started by a group of post-college friends who would get together during the week to cook up experiments and eat yummy foods. The spicy avocado hummus recipe came about and they headed to the farmers market with it, which to their dismay started them on a new path in life.

I heard the story straight from the founders’ mouths. They personally took us on a tour to show us how their hummus is made and shipped out using state of the art equipment, including the cold bath prepping machine. Most hummus companies use heat or pump them full of chemicals to make the hummus stay fresh longer, but at Hope they use a high pressure process that kills pathogens, reducing spoilage and eliminating the threat of food-borne disease. The hummus stays cold from the minute it’s made to the time you open and eat it.
Sprouts Farmers Market also joined us in the fun and brought add-ins to help us make our own creation of hummus. We were given the Hope base for a sweet and a savory hummus and then added our own ingredients. It was so fun!
My sweet was geared towards snickerdoodles where I added cinnamon, ginger, cacao chips, coconut and my savory had sun dried tomatoes, garlic, red pepper, fresh basil leaves and other things that I just can’t remember because I just kept dumping. hahaha.
Hope Hummus is available around the country now and you can definitely find it at Sprouts Farmers Market. The new Lemon Peppercorn is sold exclusively there! And check out the guac? That is a new item too.
I know my chocolate readers are running to the store right now for the Dark Chocolate Hummus. One of the co-founders told me she pours blueberries into her container for her special treat of the day. Whoops, I hope that wasn’t a secret!
