A delicious new twist on hummus made with warm spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamon and served as a dessert! Lightly sweetened with no sugar added apple juice and medjool dates. Kid friendly and parent approved.
Children and adults will love this tasty dessert with apple slices, pear slices and bananas. You might even enjoy a little dish of it with a spoon – I may or may not have done this myself!
Apple Cinnamon Dessert Hummus
- 2 cups garbanzo beans, drained – canned or home cooked
- 1/2 cup oven roasted Japanese Sweet Potato – peeled
- 3/4 cup apple juice – no sugar added or aquafaba or water
- 4 pitted dates
- 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg – or from a spice jar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamon
Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until creamy smooth. Add additional juice, aquafaba or water if needed to thin the hummus. You want it to be smooth and creamy for dipping or spreading on fruit.
Serve with slices of apple, pear or banana. Spread some on whole grain toast or on a Quinoa Banana Oat Muffin. Or enjoy a small dish of it with a spoon!

Many of you expressed how much you enjoy the recipe navigation system that David had created on our blog and we have kept that for you and even added a few more categories in an attempt to make it easier to find the recipes you want to try. Not all of the recipes are in the navigations system but that is my task and I will be working on it weekly until all the recipes are there. You can use the search bar to look for things as well.
