Dessert Hummus

This week’s recipe is: DESSERT HUMMUS! I found it on one of those Tasty recipe videos that are all over Facebook and I knew I had to try it out. I have been trying to eat healthier, but my gigantic sweet tooth and my teeny, tiny, little willpower keep getting in the way. There is no way I’m alone in this, so I decided to start posting some healthy snack recipes to help us all stay on track! Every couple of weeks, I plan to post a new snack recipe that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating. After all, us mommas need snack time too! 

I made 4 different hummus flavors, and I can’t decide which one is my favorite. They were all delicious, but the best part is that they really could not be easier. You literally throw everything into a food processor, and in minutes, you’ve got hummus! Seriously, that’s it.

I’m not even including steps with each flavor because the only steps are: Add ingredients to food processor and blend until smooth. Then put in the fridge for about an hour or until it sets

Here are the four dessert hummus recipes I tried.
