Yes! You read that right! This is a chocolate hummus recipe & man it is so good! It has my taste buds doing all kinds of tricks. I went to Savannah a few weekends ago with one of my roommates for a free yoga event. It turned into a whole day of fun excursions. Somehow, we ended up in an olive oil shop. I have no idea how we got there, because we were just trying to find a place to eat lunch. We had also already been distracted by a cat café (that has adoptable cats). Since we were already off course we popped into the olive oil shop to browse around. One of my favorite things about small shops is that they have items you can’t find anywhere else and trying all the samples. I should know better than to try samples, because if I like it I will 111% purchase said item. Ergo what this entire blog post is based on.
One of the most absurd ingredients I’ve ever seen in hummus. Think back to the first time you made hummus. Remember how you felt when you first read tahini. This is exactly how I felt when I saw balsamic vinegar in this recipe. While browsing around I found recipe cards, one of which was chocolate hummus. This is where I adapted this recipe from. As soon as I saw the words chocolate and hummus I knew I had to try it out. I was really sold on it after tasting balsamic by itself. It had such a wonderful not too sweet chocolate taste.
I like to eat OG hummus with carrots or pepper sticks. For dessert hummus I opt away from my typical veggies and mix it up a little. My favorite paring has been pretzels, they taste like a healthy chocolate covered pretzel. Another great option that is rather popular around this time of year is strawberries. This is a great option for healthy chocolate covered strawberries—yum!
