This Chocolate Dessert Hummus is a surprisingly addicting healthy sweet treat. You’ll love dripping crunchy pretzels and fruit into it.
Last year, when I was still working in an office, my coworker brought in dessert hummus. OMG. We tried it and we were hooked.
I know that dessert hummus sounds strange, but it’s really so good.
She saw some on Shark Tank and then found it at a local grocery store so picked some up to try. Then we were both on the look out for all different brands and flavors.
Since then, I’ve tried several different ones and I have my favorites. Overall, I like chocolaty ones, and it’s best enjoyed with pretzels. The salty/sweet combo is addicting. We felt that apples with it, just fell a little flat.
I kept telling myself that I would make some one day. Making hummus is so easy that I do it often, but just never made it sweet.
I made it and I am just as hooked to making it, as I am with making my favorite extra lemony garlicky hummus.
How to describe dessert hummus? hmmm???
It has the consistency just like hummus, with a very suble, somewhat muted, chickpea flavor. But it does taste like a sweet treat. I’m not going to lie, it doesn’t taste like brownie batter or frosting, but it’s still really addicting. Before you know it you are dip, dip, dipping your way through the bowl of the hummus.
This Chocolate Dessert Hummus can be jazzed up with some mini chocolate chips, but I love it nice and smooth. But some extras chocolate definitely doesn’t hurt.
Chocolate Dessert Hummus is great for just about everyone. It’s a gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian treat. It can even can be vegan if you use agave, instead of honey. Besides fitting into those buckets, it is just a great healthy snack or dessert. One cup of cooked chickpeas is packed with 15 grams of protein and 13 grams of dietary fiber. It’s also a great source of iron, vitamin B-6, and magnesium. Certainly much better than just snacking on a something overtly sweet and processed. ew!
This Chocolate Dessert Hummus is certainly not your average hummus. Give it a try and you’ll love it!
