This is not your traditional savory hummus made with tahini. It´s dessert hummus! You can get pretty creative with different ingredients to make a sweet dessert hummus to enjoy as a dessert, snack, or even breakfast. This recipe resembles some of our vegan cheesecake recipes. It´s made with fresh cashew butter and coconut milk made with the NutraMilk. It's creamy, flavorful, and packed with protein, fiber, heart-healthy fats as well as vitamins and minerals for optimal nutrition. Enjoy!
