Strawberry Dessert Hummus

Sometimes I start making a recipe and it turns into something totally different.  That was what happened a few days ago when I was going to make some Vegan High Protein Cookie Dough, but I ended up making strawberry hummus instead.  How does that happen?  Well, the cookie dough base is chickpeas, so I threw those in the blender, along with some almond butter and dates.  There weren't quite enough dates in the container I was using so I went back in the refrigerator for more and saw the large amount of strawberries in there.  Hey...I could make strawberry hummus!  I thought to myself.  I am obsessed with chickpeas and hummus and love snacking on them, so I why not make a dessert hummus and change it up from the always savory?!  So that is how I ended up with the recipe I am sharing with you now.  I ended up not even needing the extra dates because it was sweet enough with the berries.

This is super simple, just 5 ingredients including sea salt!  You whiz it all together in the blender and voila!  Snack deliciousness!  Now you may be thinking to yourself, it sounds a bit weird, but it is actually really good.  You can't taste the chickpeas.  To me this is actually reminiscent of raw strawberry cheesecake before it has set up, so really tasty!  Not to mention packed with strawberry flavor.

So what do you serve this with?  Well, I honestly just ate mine with more strawberries, dipping them into it and it was heavenly that way.  But I think you could spread this on bagels cream cheese style because of how much it reminds me of strawberry cheesecake.  Or you could just eat it straight up with a spoon.  As I also did.  I love dessert hummus!  If you are in the mood for something a little different featuring strawberries, give this a try!
