Kid-Friendly Hummus Recipes!

With Spring Break just ending for us and for some, it is around the corner–it can get busy at home. With the polar vortex and the high temps and then the huge dips makes for a lot of time indoors. What better way than to teach your kids good habits and useful lifelong skills than to keep them busy in the kitchen?

Why not go further and have them make HEALTHY eats?

Dipping is a great way to introduce flavourful foods like salsa, guacamole, and hummus to a finicky eater’s diet, and having kids “cook” their own snacks and meals is a terrific way to spend time as a family. Plus, it gives them a creative outlet and something to do that’s enjoyable for all!

Healthy Eats.
Adventure awaits.

I admit, my kids can be picky when it comes to trying new things. One thing that I discovered when Sabra asked me to try out some of their amazing products is that their palates are already expanding. If you know Gabby, you know that she loves cooking and best of all learning new things in the kitchen. Little did I know was that she already LOVED hummus and had eaten it with her Aunt many times and even at school. Definitely a pleasant surprise to me and my Hubby.

About Sabra Classic Hummus:

Sabra’s Classic Hummus combines fresh chickpeas with a touch of garlic and tahini (ground sesame seeds) to create a smooth and creamy spread. It’s as healthy as it is delicious (which is to say, very). 2 tbsp. contains 70 calories and is low in sodium.

The recipes above were made entirely by Gabby, who is 10, with my supervision. I am proud to say that she made these on her own and was over the moon to be able to make them herself.

Watch the Tutorial.

Gabby decided to make Hammy Hummus Pin Wheels and Cucumber Hummus Dip Appetizers for herself and us too. It was the perfect finger food with a healthy starch, dairy, protein, fat, and fiber. We had a good time and not only did she make a healthy snack, she felt self-accomplished and I taught her how to properly use a knife and we had a little bonding time.
