Low Fat Hummus

Comments : 2 Posted in : Uncategorized on by : Dani Pipkins Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

That’s right, it is low fat. I no longer consume oil or any products with added oils. This is because I have found out that the risks to my body and arteries is just not worth it. I also am on a journey towards a healthier weight so adding extra fat when it is not necessary is well, just silly. Tahini is not a flavor that I really like and it is pretty much pure fat, even has some saturated fat, so that is completely out of the picture for me. I know many of you are in the same boat and same line of thinking.

I use my Vitamix to make hummus as the smooth creaminess just can’t be beat. Any high powered blender will work just fine. You can also use a normal blender or a food processor. If you do you either of the latter, think about just pinching each garbanzo bean lightly to remove the skins before adding them in.

I love my oil-free hummus and I could sit here and eat it with a spoon!

Enjoy this recipe!

  1. Open your cans of beans. Drain one can and keep the liquid from the other. Run water over the beans to rinse them and then put them into the blender.
  2. Put all of the ingredients into the blender and blend on low and increase as you go. Turn up onto highest speed for a few seconds at the end making sure the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
  3. Stop and taste to see if you need to add any salt, etc.
  4. Enjoy.

    This sounds awesome. Trying to cut out unneeded fat also.
    How much garbanzo beans would you use if not using canned?

      Hi Linda! Use 3 cups of cooked beans. :)
