Everyone knows hummus is the ultimate dip appetizer! Change up your usual snacking with this Lemon Hemp Hummus made with fresh lemons and Hemp Hearts for a nutritious recipe made from wholesome ingredients.
Hummus is one of those recipes that is always convenient to have on hand. As someone who aims to get in as many veggies as possible on a daily basis, having hummus for dipping certainly helps me step up my game. At this point vegetables basically taste like hummus to me…
Seeing that hummus is a food group in my diet, it’s become important for me to ensure I’m maximizing its nutrition. I’ll admit that at times I get lazy and just buy it at the store, but when I make it myself I’m reminded how easy it is to make!
Making it at home also allows you to add in delicious and healthy ingredients like Hemp Hearts and ditch the preservatives they put into store-bought versions.
It’s unbelievably tasty, has heart-healthy omega fatty acids from the Hemp Hearts, protein from the chickpeas and a zesty lemon flavour.
I just made yours and every healthy food blogger’s dream come true!
