I’ve almost made it! On the last day of my 10-Day Advocare Cleanse. I’m surprised at how fast it’s gone by and even more surprised that I haven’t been tempted to have a sugar binge.
During the cleanse I have limited myself to only making healthy recipes. This recipe for Black Bean Hummus has been one of my favorites. At first I thought I would miss eating hummus with pita bread, which I can’t have on the cleanse, but the vegetables tasted so good with the hummus, I didn’t miss the bread at all.
This hummus is a super quick and healthy snack and it couldn’t be easier to make. Just dump all ingredients in a food processor and you’re done. There’s hardly any clean-up. I think I like the flavor of this hummus much better than regular chickpea hummus and almost as much as Sweet Potato Hummus which in my opinion is the most delicious hummus ever.
This recipe doesn’t make a huge amount. If you’re making it for a potluck or want it to last awhile, double the recipe.
This would also be a great on-the-go lunch. Just put some hummus in a small container and throw some chopped up veggies in a ziploc bag and you’re off.
