Chocolate Hummus

Chocolate Hummus

I am positively swooning over this smooth, rich, perfectly sweet, and easy chocolate hummus. You’re probably used to savory hummus flavors like my Ranch Hummus or Buffalo Wing Hummus, but if you’ve never tried a sweet variety, get ready to fall in love! This simple chocolate hummus uses only 6 ingredients and comes together in less than 5 minutes (including measuring out the ingredients) – what’s easier than that? I can’t get over how decadent and chocolatey this tastes, and it’s perfect as a dessert, a snack or as party food (make this to be a potluck hero). Plus, a generous ¼ cup (which just means a serving is a little more than ¼ cup) is only 127 calories or 3 Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints!

I love serving this with fruits like strawberries, pineapple spears, or banana slices, but it would also be great with something salty like pretzels. The Greek yogurt gives this chocolate hummus a smooth and creamy consistency that’s perfect for dipping!

  1. Looks so good! How long would this last in the fridge?

  2. Made and loved for snacks last week. Subbed some maple syrup as I ran out of honey. Delicious!

  3. Oh, wow! I cannot wait to try this! Thank you for posting!

  4. Of you make this with Splenda would it have 0 points?

  5. I LOVE this recipe!!! My husband, 8, 5, and 2-year-olds love it too! I decided to experiment tonight, and I added about 1 teaspoon of hazelnut extract. It’s not quite Nutella, but it’s still good! I’m also thinking maybe next time some peppermint extract for mint-chocolate??? I feel like the possibilities are endless!

  6. Would it work without the honey or is there another way to get the points down?

    • It wouldn’t be sweet at all if you omit the honey so I would not recommend that. You could probably replace the honey with an artificial sweetener if you prefer
