I don’t know about you, but ever since I heard about chocolate hummus, I’ve been dying to try it! Luckily for me, my friends at Tribe Hummus sent me a sample of their many dessert hummus flavors to try for myself a few weeks ago. As a complete chocolate lover, it was no surprise to me that I loved Tribe’s Dark Chocolate Hummus! In addition to this flavor, their dessert line includes Sea Salt Caramel, Vanilla Bean, Cake Batter and Pea-No Nut Butter (an awesome option for allergies or to bring to school!). All of the Tribe Dessert Hummus flavors have only 5 grams of sugar per serving, contain no artificial preservatives, are free from all major allergens including dairy, Non-GMO project verified, vegan, gluten free and kosher. I love this as a mom, especially one who has a child with allergies! To me, this also shows Tribe’s dedication to creating a great product that can be enjoyed by so many despite diet restrictions or preferences.
With Valentine’s Day on the way, I know many of us have dessert on the mind. I can’t really even blame Valentine’s Day as my sweet tooth is crazy just about all the time, but especially when I’m pregnant! When I received Tribe’s dessert hummus, I knew it would be the perfect addition to a dessert platter with all the fixings for a Valentine’s Day party (or any get together for that matter!).
To make the platter, I started off with my largest white serving platter. I like using white as a backdrop for platters like this because it helps you really focus on the items, but using a wood board would be great too! Next, I added Tribe’s dessert hummus to ramekins and placed them on the platter. I made sure to place my favorite flavor, the Dark Chocolate Hummus, an amazingly delicious mix of cocoa and chickpeas, front and center on the platter! Once you have your “dips” in place, I started filling in with all sorts of sweet and salty treats that pair well with the dessert hummus, such as pretzels, graham crackers, strawberries, mini chocolate chip cookies, brownies and wafers. I focus on laying out one of the items first and then gradually fill in the serving platter. To keep things looking Insta-worthy, I typically try to alternate colors by placing different hued items next to one another for a bit of contrast. Bright colors from fruit like strawberries or raspberries are also a great way to add some color and a little something extra!
Once the platter is arranged, it is time to dig in! I love sweet and salty so was obsessed with dipping pretzels into Tribe’s Dark Chocolate Hummus for the ideal combination. Nicholas just recently started having pretzels and he cannot get enough so he wanted to join in on the fun too! For a truly decadent pair, adding some of the chocolate hummus to the top of a brownie was out of this world too! If you are hosting this month, try something different for dessert and make a platter with Tribe’s Dessert Hummus- visit their site to find a store near you that carries it! You can thank me after you try the dark chocolate 🙂
