Hummus Is the Ultimate Guilt-Free Dessert


It’s not particularly “new” on the food scene, but the last few years have seen this chickpea-based dip amass a cult following. This latest trend, however, has taken the hummus obsession to sweet new heights.

Whether you like to keep it simple by making it yourself with a classic chickpea, tahini and lemon juice combo, or amp it up with the addition of beetroot or capsicum, hummus is one of those dips that is universally loved.

There’s something about the hearty nuttiness that pairs perfectly with crisp pita breads, fresh veggie sticks, and tender Middle Eastern-spiced lamb.

This is how we knew hummus. That is, until now. A company called “Delighted By Dessert Hummus” has changed the game forever, by turning this traditionally savory dip into an indulgent sweet treat.

The flavors include chocolate chip cookie dough, orange ginger, brownie batter, and snickerdoodle (a cinnamon-based cookie). Like the traditional recipe, the dessert dips use tahini and salt, but the chickpeas are swapped for creamy coconut milk and a generous dash of organic Turbinado sugar is added.

The company was founded by holistic nutritionist Makenzie Marzluff, who first came up with the concept as a healthy dessert idea to bring to dinner parties, in place of the usual cheesecake and brownie trays.
