Prior Prepration:

  • Make Almond Milk for almond pulp


  • 1 cup almond pulp from making Almond Milk
  • 1/4 cup zucchini peeled
  • 1 Tbs tahini un hulled

Ensure the essential oil you use if of the highest quality and is ingestible. I use doTerra essential oils as they are of high quality. 
If you do not have essential oils you can substitute 2 - 4 Tbs of coriander leaves. 
Almond and Zucchini Hummus can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for about 3 days.
