Adventures in Healthy Eating 3: Chocolate Hummus

Lord knows what the kids will think of this as a snack. Erin likes regular hummus and Leigh likes most chocolatey things, so there's a chance :D


1/4 cup ground almonds
5 pitted dates
1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup skimmed milk

It couldn't be easier to make, just chop the dates and then put everything in the food processor.

 I didn't chop my dates and they wouldn't process so I had to get them out and chop them after instead. Messy job. -.-

 Ta-da, chocolate hummus ready for dipping things in.

 And what better than biscuits. Apple slices would be healthier if you want to one up us. :p

Nobody liked it, not even me and I'm usually all over anything chocolate tasting. Which was the problem really, it didn't taste very chocolatey at all. A bit disappointing! We all had a good try of it, even Erin dunked all her biscuits in it.  It had a nice texture and was pleasing how it stuck to the biscuits.

Back to the drawing board. :)
