10 Diabetes Friendly Hummus Recipes for Your Summer Picnic

Hummus has taken North America by storm, and it seems like the perfect little dip to bring along to all your summer picnics.

The problem?

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:

#1 Classic Creamy Hummus

Suggested serving.

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.

#2 Avocado Hummus

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.

#3 Spinach, Feta, and Dill Hummus

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.

#4 Black Bean Hummus with Lime

Suggested serving.

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.

#5 Cumin Roasted Carrot Hummus

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!

#6 Roasted Garlic Hummus

Everyone loves roasted garlic. So that’s really all the explanation needed for this delicious recipe.

#7 Smoky Chipotle Hummus

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.

#8 Spicy Black Bean Hummus

Another delicious bean dip, healthified by the hummus recipe. Add more spice to really make it memorable.

#9 Everything White Bean Hummus

Suggested serving.

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!
