Dessert hummus

Do you like hummus?  Do you like flavored hummus?  Have you ever tried dessert hummus?  Let me just tell you that it is delicious and nutritious.  On several occasions I have been known to order dessert hummus from Crazy Camel.  It didn’t take long for that to disappear.  There’s just something about a sweet and good for you spread to put on toast, grahams, nilla wafers or just to eat out of the container with a spoon!

Ingredients: except for the parmesan that is accidentally in the pic (it was for the dinner I was also making).

Blending in the food processor

  3. Wow, this is so genius. And so healthy. I need to make this for late night snacking so that I stay away from my Vosges collection :).
