Hummus. One of our favorite appetizers/snacks/conduit of veggies getting into our bellies. But, over the past couple of years, there’s been a new hummus boom: dessert hummus.
Of course, we’re thrilled since we can’t get enough of the dark chocolate hummus from Sprouts (which can get pricey when they aren’t on sale) and healthier desserts always make us super happy.
We’ve compiled seven vegan dessert hummus recipes from bloggers that will change the way you think about dessert and chickpeas. So, grab some fruit or crackers, plug in your Vitamix or Nutribullet, and get cracking!
