Hummus has forever been a protein-rich dip for your veggies and chips, a spread on your greek wraps and much more. It’s a very simple blend of chickpeas, oils, and seasoning to make it perfect. So, what exactly is dessert hummus? All the same things! Except, instead of the savory seasonings and oils, you add in sweet and decadent options to make a dessert dip that will be gone before you know it.

We love dessert hummus! This sweet protein-packed treat is gracing the aisles of grocery stores, but with a hefty price tag! Next time you’re there, put it back on the shelf and grab a few inexpensive ingredients to make it at home instead. We love the chocolate version, but there’s perhaps no better kind than funfetti cake batter!
