Coconut Hummus Dip with Snap Peas

Are you in the mood for a delicious snack? Bored with crunchy cookies and crackers? Be sure to give this recipe a whirl! It is a great alternative to the processed and conventional snacks on the market that may contain artificial ingredients or preservatives. Hummus is a simple way to include a variety of nutrients in your diet, especially protein. We need to be eating adequate amounts of protein to help promote healthy muscles and tissues in our body. The chickpeas in the recipe are an excellent source of digestion-friendly fiber and zinc for keeping the immune system strong. The Kelapo coconut oil gives your body a healthy dose of “good fats” to promote beautiful hair, skin, and nails. This coconut oil is also beneficial for promoting healthy cell and hormone formation inside of the body. You can dip whatever you like into this hummus but I really enjoy it with organic snap peas. Snap peas are a good way to add energizing B vitamins to your diet along with a variety of other nutrients. Give this recipe a try today!

Delicious Hummus



• 1 ½ C organic chick peas
• 1 Tbsp cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil
• 1 ½ Tbsp Kelapo Coconut Oil
• 3 Tbsp tahini
• 1 tsp lemon juice
• 3 cloves of fresh garlic
• Dash of cumin
• 1 tsp sea salt
• Dash of pepper
• ¼ C purified water

In your food processor or blender, add all of the ingredients except for the water. Process the ingredients until the mixture is smooth. You will need to use a spatula to remove the hummus from the side of the equipment. As you process the ingredients, slowly start to pour in the water. Add as much salt and pepper as you desire. Let chill in fridge for about 30 minutes and serve with snap peas.
