I’ve been thinking of experimenting with a recipe for dessert hummus for a while. I have ideas for a few seasonal items that I’m excited to share over the next few months but first up is this gingerbread dessert dip!
What to serve dessert hummus dip with?
There are so many ways to can enjoy dessert dips, here are a few of my favorites:
- Graham crackers
- Chocolate (yes, dip the dark chocolate in)
Naturally, fruit makes the most sense. I recommend strawberries, pineapple, apples, grapes, and other sturdy fruit.
You can also make this dessert hummus recipe sugar free (or refined sugar free) but swapping brown sugar for one of the following:
- Maple syrup
- Coconut Sugar
- Honey (this makes not as rich, I prefer maple syrup).
Should I use canned chickpeas or dried?
You can do either or.
I always use canned chickpeas because it’s easier. However, remember that you need to drain the chickpeas and rinse them well.
If you want to use dried chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) here’s how you cook them:
- Soak the dried chickpeas in water overnight (you’ll want a large bowl for this).
- The next day, add the soaked chickpeas to a stockpot, cover with a few inches of salted water, bring to a boil over high. Then turn it down and simmer (covered) for 1 1/2 hours.
By popular request, I am slowly adding container counts for those of you following the Ultimate Portion Fix. This way you can see if it works for your plan for Beachbody programs like 21 Day Fix, LIIFT4, 80 Day Obsession, and 10 Rounds.
Full recipe: 4 yellow, 3 tsps.
Per serving: 1 yellow, 3/4 tsp.
How to make dessert hummus
This is a foolproof recipe, just add the ingredient and process until smooth. If you have canned chickpeas on hand, you can whip up this recipe for any last-minute guests in under 10 minutes!
Tip: You’ll have to process it for a while to truly have it go smooth (if it’s gritty, keep blending).
Supplies for dessert hummus:
I highly recommend a food processor (I have this one).
You could make it with a high-speed blender, but it will take more effort and work. You may have to work in batches.
If you’re cooking appetizers for a Christmas party, try this Christmas Meat and Cheese Board.
