Dessert Hummus is the Latest Healthy Sweet Craze

If you can't get enough of hummus, you will love this sweet spin on the middle eastern dip.

While hummus is traditionally made from chickpeas and tahini, you can find just about any flavour of the dip on your supermarket shelves. 

However, until now, we haven't seen any non-savoury versions of hummus - and it's about time!


Founder of 'Delighted By', Makenzie Marzluff, is taking America by storm with her creation: dessert hummus.

Makenzie mixes her hummus with yummy ingredients like brownie batter, cinnamon, orange and ginger, and - of course - chocolate to make the greatest new dessert.

Not only can you use dessert hummus as a dip for your bread or crackers, there are some great ways to enjoy this sweet treat.

For example, why not add some dessert hummus to your pancakes?

Or perhaps you would like it in your sundae?

The best thing is that this vegan, gluten-free treat is also considerably healthy for something that is a dessert by name.

While 'Delighted By' is not available in Australia yet, many are heading to the kitchen to try their hand at their own versions of this easy-to-make dessert. Even Nigella is getting on the bandwagon! 

So grab a spoon or some strawberries, and start scooping, spreading and dipping!
