I love, love, love this hummus dip. It’s a great snack because it’s full of protein and fiber to keep you feeling full. It also tastes amazing, so if you make some and keep it in your fridge, you’ll likely reach for it over unhealthier choices when it’s between meals…

Roasted Strawberry Fruit Dip with Dark Chocolate
