Yes, you read that right, chocolate hummus. Sounds strange, but it’s delicious.

A while back, I saw a chocolate hummus (I think Boar’s Head brand) on Amanda’s Instagram story and was intrigued. A few weeks later, I stumbled across it at Fry’s, gave it a try, and was hooked (thanks for letting me know about it, Amanda!). It pairs perfectly with fruit and/or graham crackers and feels like a treat, but is full of healthy ingredients. I knew I had to recreate it at home.
This dip uses only 5 ingredients, is vegan and makes for a perfect sweet snack! While it is a chickpeas base, you really don’t taste the chickpeas in the final product. Instead, you have a chocolatey, lightly sweet snack. I found it satisfied my sweet tooth but was also filling and didn’t leave me with a sugar crash an hour later, which made it the perfect afternoon snack for me and the kiddos!
- 1 can chickpeas, drained
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 4 tablespoons almond milk (I used unsweetened vanilla)
Directions: Add all ingredients in a food processor or blender, mix well, stopping to scrape the sides as needed. Process until a nice, smooth consistency is reached. Serve cold with fresh fruit or graham crackers.
*feel free to add a little more or less cocoa powder or maple syrup to customize to your tastes.
Let me know if you give it a try!
What are you snacking on these days? As it gets warmer here, I have been all about cold snacks, give me all the smoothies and veggies with hummus!
Thanks for stopping by today, hope you have a great one!
