Sugar Free Chocolate Hummus


Sugar free, and full of protein this chocolate hummus is so versatile and delicious!  You can even use it as frosting!

I use black beans and peanut butter, but you can use white beans and other nut butters as well.

Sugar Free Chocolate Hummus
  • 1 cups dates, pitted or 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  •  Good pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Local honey to taste
  • 2-4 tablespoons water,  date soaking liquid or milk

Method:
  1.  If the dates or raisins are dry, cover with boiling water for 5 minutes, strain and save the water
  2. Place the rest of the ingredients except for the soaking water in a food processor and process until totally smooth, adding the liquid as needed.
  3. Let hummus sit for several hours so the flavors can get to know each other. 



Kids love it (especially with a Green Slime smoothie on the side!)
