Hummus is a great source of plant-based protein, and it contains a wide varieties of vitamins and minerals. The main ingredient in hummus is chickpeas, which is full of raffinose fiber. It makes a healthy and filling snack to improve your digestive health and grow your good gut bacteria. I love to make my own hummus because I can choose the ingredients from the brands I trust, and adjust the ratio of the ingredients based on my preferences.
To keep the hummus fresh and tasty, I’d like to use my Blen2Go to make a small batch. I’d also like to make my hummus while camping as well not only to make sure I can keep my health on track while away from home, but also reduce the usage of plastic container.
