Creamy Alkaline Hummous Recipe
This is one of my all-time favourite alkaline recipes! It is SO delicious, and the cannelini beans used alongside the chickpeas makes this so, so creamy (and adds an extra protein hit).
It’s so simple, quick and easy to make, and it makes a big bowl that will last you all week. It keeps brilliantly in the fridge, especially if you drizzle with a good glug of olive oil each time you put it back in fridge.
You can use as much or as little cilantro as you like, and an optional extra could be some lovely fresh chilli too (personally my favourite, doesn’t go down too well with my kids!).
When you’re wanting to get alkaline, having access to alkaline snacks like this is a lifesaver. It’s often when we’re hungry, in a rush and the blood sugar is low that we slip up and reach for something unhealthy.
With this recipe in the fridge all week long, you can always just grab some gluten free crackers or GF bread and put the snack-attack to bed (or even make my alkaline celery boats with this instead of almond butter).
(or just have it off the spoon!)
