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.
