Chocolate Hummus

It’s the festive season so why not try a different kind of hummus?!

This recipe is so creamy and fluffy, serve it with some fresh summer fruit and voila you have yourself a beautiful platter.

The chocolate hummus provides your body with amazing nutritional value, it is way better than the store bought sweet dips or something like Nutella.

The recipe contains healthy protein from the chickpeas, sustainable fat from the tahini and coconut oil as well as antioxidants from the cacao. The recipe is also a good source of calcium.

If your not a fan of tahini you can easily substitute it for organic nut butter.
