If you find that your hummus is too thick, add a little more almond milk to reach your desired consistency.
Dark Chocolate Hummus Variation
Honey or Agave
You can use honey as a sweetener if you are vegetarian and don’t need it. Or even a liquid agave will work instead of maple syrup. Just sweet in taste.
Dark chocolate cocoa powder
You can reach for dark chocolate cocoa to enhance the flavor of this hummus. I used a regular cocoa but hesitated to change it.
You can swap from almond milk to coconut milk, soy, etc. Use what you have. I prefer to use only almond milk as we have plenty of it in our kitchen.
Dark Chocolate Hummus FAQs
Is it a sweet hummus?
Yes, it’s a dessert hummus. Chickpeas are the base but the other ingredients help elevate the flavor to the chocolate flavor.
How to store leftover chocolate hummus?
If you don’t eat all of your hummus, simply store it in an airtight container in the fridge. Hummus will keep for 4-5 days. Just stir and then dish up the hummus.
Does hummus freeze?
I do not recommend freezing hummus. It’s going to change the texture and it won’t taste very good. I recommend that you make everything you plan to eat in time before it spoils.
Are chickpeas and garbanzo beans the same thing?
Depending on where you live, you may call chickpeas garbanzo beans. They are the same thing when it comes to making hummus. So feel free to use garbanzo beans if it’s labeled on the can.
