Simple Lemon Garlic Hummus

I absolutely love hummus! I use it as a snack almost everyday! I love it with veggies or even as the dressing on my salad. It’s creamy and delicious. When we received the Vitamix as a wedding present this was one of the first things I made!

 When I cook, I always try to make the recipe healthier so often I will start following a recipe and then stop and do my own thing! That’s not the case with this, however when I have made hummus in the past, following a recipe, they always use a lot of olive oil. I love a little EVOO don’t get me wrong but, this time I just wasn’t into it. So I decided to use coconut oil instead and I love the way it turned out! It was lemony but garlicy and the consistency was much better than most other hummus I’ve had! Hope you liked it as much as I did! Enjoy!
