Hummus has taken North America by storm, and it seems like the perfect little dip to bring along to all your summer picnics.
Most store-bought hummus dips are loaded with sugar, saturated fat, salt, and preservatives. In the end, they aren’t even really that good for you.
Here are some easy, delicious, and healthy homemade hummus recipes that you can take to your next picnic:
Everyone first needs a classic hummus recipe for their launching point. This one will do it for ya. It’s easy, quick, and so much tastier than those plastic-encased dips that have been sitting far too long on those grocery shelves.
For a little extra punch, this recipe throws some avocados in the mix. The healthy fats give it a creamy texture that is hard to beat. Plus, you’ll be enjoying all the benefits, such as fat and fiber, that the avocados have to offer.
If you’re trying to take a step toward the gourmet-style hummus, this is a great recipe for you. Spinach and feta will take the depth of flavor to a whole new level. Dill serves as a perfectly refreshing surprise with each bite.
Black bean hummus offers a healthy way to munch on tortilla chips at your next picnic without the heavy guilt that usually comes with snacking.
For a more exotic flavor, try this recipe. Cumin provides an intense flavor that is mellowed out by the carrots. You can also use it as a delicious spread for your sandwiches!
Everyone loves roasted garlic. So that’s really all the explanation needed for this delicious recipe.
Throw in a bit of smoky chipotle to satisfy all those pepper-loving eaters. It takes an otherwise mediocre hummus to an exciting new level.
Another delicious bean dip, healthified by the hummus recipe. Add more spice to really make it memorable.
All the flavors that you love with all the fiber and protein of white beans. Plus, any leftovers can be used on your next sandwich!
Lastly, we had to include a dessert hummus. It may not be the healthiest version but it will certainly be fun to eat. Your picnic guests will love it, too.
