The Smoothest Hummus Recipes Made with My Optimum G2.1 Blender

One thing that I always make sure to have in my fridge is hummus. It's such a great basic. You can use it as a simple dip, but also add as a spread and sauce. I love a good hummus wrap or pasta with hummus sauce (yes it's delicious, especially with beetroot hummus I'm sharing below). 

Store bought hummus is okay, but if you want to take your hummus game to the next level I highly recommend making your own. This will make your hummus more delicious (you make it just as you like it) and healthier. I find that many of the store bought hummuses are packed with extra oil and salt. 

But isn't it a lot of work to make your own hummus you might think? Not at all my friend. You simply throw a bunch of ingredients into a blender. No chopping and no big mess. There's no excuse why you couldn't make your own. I usually make a big batch on Sunday night that will last me through out the week. Sometimes I have to make two batches as it seems like I can eat endless amounts of hummus.

Today I'm bringing you two, YES TWO, hummus recipes together with Froothie Finland. Both batches turned out perfect thanks to my Optimum G2.1 Premium Series Blender.

I could probably add that I prefer the lightest (with this I mean the light colour) and very runny version of tahini. I think this kind of tahini gives you the smoothest and best tasting hummus. You should be able to find light tahini in most organic shops and also in some supermarkets. 

I truly hope you enjoyed these recipes! Let me know what your favourite kind of hummus is.
