Chocolate Hommus

OMG... what?

Chocolate hommus!

One of my fave snacks would have to be carrot sticks with regular hommus… but this chocolate version of hommus is NEXT LEVEL.

It is a deeeeeelishous and guilt-free snack, at only 93 calories per serve.  Pair it with strawberries which are a low calorie fruit and you have yourself a winning mid-afternoon snack when you start to feel that 3pm slump and need a pick-me-up.  

Make up a batch on Sunday, portion it out into containers and keep it in the fridge for a mid-week indulgence.  Put a smile on the face of even the fussiest kids, or make your work colleagues super jealous (don't forget to tell them where you got the recipe from!).

I can't wait for you to give this a try and let me know what you think!
