Luscious Raspberry Lemon Dessert Hummus

raspberry lemon dessert hummus

If you haven’t heard of dessert hummus yet, get ready for a treat! 

Recently, there has been several brands of dessert hummus popping up. I believe it all started with a company that pitched on Shark Tank and received a $600,000 offer.

The popularity of dessert hummus has grown considerably and for good reason! 

Cheap, healthy, versatile, and suitable for gluten free and vegan diets (if you are vegan and don’t eat honey it is easily replaced with maple syrup or agave syrup), dessert hummus appeals to a wide audience.

Dessert Hummus Nutrition

Chickpeas lend themselves very well to sweet flavours. I’ve been making healthy cookie dough dip with chickpeas for ages but have just branched out into making other flavours. 

They are super nutritious, containing a ton of fiber and protein. They help keep you feeling full while providing loads of manganese (84% of daily needs!) and folate (71% DV) along with phosphorus, iron, magnesium and more.

Raspberries have to be one of my favourite fruits. Lemons are a close second. I am a huge fan of tart flavours, even in my desserts. Raspberries are also high in fiber and 1 cup contains 53% of your daily recommended Vitamin C.

Dessert Hummus Ideas

If you struggle to figure out healthy additions for your children’s lunches or you want to try something new in your own snack meal prep, then this raspberry lemon dessert hummus recipe is a great choice.

(See my Pinterest Board for a ton of school lunch ideas!)

If you love the tart sweetness of raspberries, this dessert hummus is for you. It’s healthy and kid-friendly and a great addition to your meal prep or school lunches.

This dip takes literally 5 minutes to make and if you cook your chickpeas in the Instant Pot, you’ll have plenty to use up in this creamy sweet-tart snack.

We dipped it with fruit (bananas are particularly yummy), pita crisps, and lady fingers. Each were delicious!

I store my hummus in these pretty glass jars.

Hummus doesn’t sound like something that could be used as a dessert, but I am inspired! I just love this idea.

Yum! How creative 🙂 We are huge hummus fans over here – love that you included honey!


Oh yum! I love hummus and this recipe looks divine!
