Method

Place all of the ingredients for the avocado hummus into a food processor and blitz until smooth. Add a little water when the motor is running if it is too thick. Transfer to a serving bowl.

Wipe out the food processor and repeat the process for the avocado pesto.

To make the tzatziki, squeeze the excess liquid out of the cucumber then place into a large bowl. Add the garlic, Greek yoghurt, dill and avocado and season generously with salt and pepper. Mash together with a fork, add in the lemon juice, and stir to combine.

Arrange the dips on one large platter or in three separate bowls, and serve with your preferred dippers.
