Notes

Nutritional facts:
Please keep in mind that the nutritional information is calculated using a nutrition facts calculator. It is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
  • Add jalapenos for a spicier kick, add some jalapenos to the mixture when you are blending it. I don't do this often because my kids definitely can't handle the heat. But it's a hit when you are making this for some adult guests that come over. 
  • Invest in a good food processor. For achieving the perfect creamy consistency, you're going to want to invest in a good food processor or blender.
  • Avoid bottled lemon juice, use freshly squeezed lemon juice to lend your blend that freshness and zest.
  • Add an avocado, great for guac lovers! Simply add fiber-filled avocado chunks with cilantro and a few dashes of cumin while the hummus is blending, and watch how the texture turns even smoother and richer.
