Don’t let the name of this dish deter you from a healthy dessert! This chocolate hummus can be used just like a chocolate dip for a healthy snack with some fresh, cut up fruit.

Makes: 6 Servings


  • 1 Can Garbanzo Beans, drained and rinsed 3 times
  • 3 Tbl Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 4 Tbsp Unsweetened Baking Cocoa
  • 2 Tbsp Water


  1. Combine all ingredients in a high powered blender or food processor. Blend until texture is smooth – add more water if too thick.
  2. Serve with fresh fruit, I recommend strawberries and apple slices!
