Lemon Hummus

I first had lemon hummus two years ago at a friend’s Christmas party. I still have no idea what that exact recipe was but this tastes pretty similar and I’m happy about it!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

Lemon Hummus:

  • 1 15 oz can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 2-3 fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp creamy tahini
  • 2 tbsp EVOO
  • 2 tbsp filtered water
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Dash of black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric optional, for color

Quick and easy method: Toss everything in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth (I don’t removed the chickpeas shells). Stopping to scrape down the mixture off the side of the blender if needed. Add a little more water or tahini if the mixture is too thick.

Longer method: Drain and rinse the chickpeas and add to a small pot of boiling water. Let boil for 10-15 minutes, or until the chickpeas have softened. This method makes super creamy hummus! Drain and rinse the chickpeas again and then add to a blender or food processor with everything else and blend until smooth.

Have you tried lemon hummus before? I’m seriously hooked and I can’t wait until I get another can of chickpeas to make this again. Enjoy!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread Smoothie

Disclaimer, I made this once and haven’t made it again because zucchini hurts my stomach. I thought being pregnant would change the fact that zucchini hurts my stomach but nope, still bloated up like a painful balloon. Good news it that I can still eat dairy totally fine when pregnant and this smoothie tastes great. So if you like zucchini, and your stomach agrees, make this today!

Chocolate Zucchini Bread Smoothie:

  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp manuka honey
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter (or another nut butter of choice)
  • 1 handful frozen zucchini
  • 1/3 frozen banana
  • 1 cup milk of choice,
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • 10 ice cubes

Directions:

Blend all of the ingredients together until smoothie and pour into a tall glass. Top with chocolate granola and puffed kamut cereal. Zucchini, do you eat it? I am so envious of all the zucchini recipes that I’ve been seeing lately so be sure to eat and extra slice of something for me.
