Chocolate Hummus

 

Ingredients

3 cups organic chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 ripe avocado (peeled and pitted before use, of course!)........... you may substitute one ripe banana if you prefer your hummus a bit sweeter!
1/4 cup ground flaxmeal
1/2 cup cacao powder
1/2 cup organic coconut cream
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon organic coconut sugar

Garnish: drizzle coconut cream and sprinkle cacao nibs on top!

Directions:

1.  Toss everything into the blender (except garnish!)... and... BLEND!

2.  Pour into preferred serving dish (I used a pie pan), garnish with coconut cream and cacao nibs, cover with foil, and refrigerate for approximately two hours before serving.

Ideas:

1.  Scoop into cute little dessert cups and serve like a mousse.

2.  Serve with miniature biscotti for use as a dip.

3.  Use as a spread for toast.

4.  Prepare a healthy crust as a base (maybe I will come up with a recipe for this down the line!), pour hummus on top, refrigerate per recipe... and, voila!  A pie!
