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!
