Sometimes you just need a little chocolate, am I right? And luckily dark chocolate is HEALTHY and loaded with antioxidants! It only gets unhealthy when we starting adding a bunch of junk to it like dairy & sugar. And a simple way to get your chocolate fix without the guilt is with this 5 Minute Vegan Chocolate Hummus!
If you weren’t aware, most store-bought hummus has oil added to it, including the dessert chocolate hummus I’ve found. (If you don’t know why all oils should be avoided including olive oil & coconut oil, then check out this post all about oil).
I had bought the chocolate hummus as the store a few times for my kids, but had stopped buying it because of the added oil. Then last week, I had finished prepping some fresh strawberries & offered them to my youngest son. He asked about having them with the chocolate dip and I realized I could probably make it! So I did and it turned out even easier & better than expected!

You actually don’t need any oil or tahini for chocolate hummus which makes it a GREAT low fat treat!
I make vegan chocolate hummus in a food processor with an S-blade. I have a cheap Hamilton Beach like this one & it works GREAT!
You can use a blender if you don’t have a food processor, but you’ll probably have to scrape the sides down a bit more often.
Any hummus, including this 5 Minute Vegan Chocolate Hummus is super simple – just put the ingredients in an electric food processor and blend until creamy! Oila!
5 Minute Chocolate Hummus Ingredients:
- 1 3/4 cups canned chickpeas, drained

- 1/4 cup date syrup, date paste, or pure maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt, optional
- 2-4 tablespoons of water (as needed to thin out)
Add all ingredients to an electric food processor or blender and blend until smooth & creamy.
What do you eat chocolate hummus with?
There are so many things you can eat chocolate hummus with or on!
