Key lime week continues with this key lime pie hummus. It’s smooth, creamy, and tastes like key lime pie!
One evening, my family and I went grocery shopping like we usually do. My husband mentioned that we needed to buy some hummus since we were running out. I strolled by the hummus section, and just for fun, I took a look at the dessert hummus selection. I saw brownie, chocolate chip and key lime pie. Price? About $5 for a little container. Holy mackerel.
My husband was also surprised at the price for the dessert hummus. He knew that I made my own hummus before (chocolate chip snickerdoodle, pumpkin spice chocolate chip, brownie batter) so he asked if I could make key lime pie hummus. I accepted his challenge and was excited to try it.
I kept tweaking the ingredients and ended up with the recipe below. One thing to note is that you want to rinse your chickpeas really well. Otherwise, it will taste a bit funky from the can. I used about 8 key limes’ worth of juice in my hummus, but you can certainly add more or less for your tastes. Feel free to substitute brown sugar for the organic cane sugar as well.
This hummus was a tasty snack on an otherwise cold day. We enjoyed dipping graham crackers into ours. Happy hummus eating!
