Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus | Slimming World

We adore hummus! It fills you up, is zingy, and a great snack without spending any of your syns! This Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus reminds me a lot of our Syn Free Caramelised Red Onion Hummus recipe!


For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

I really need to say that Mr Marks & Spencer inspired this recipe. We had the most amazing trio of their dips at a BBQ in the summer. It’s not often I rate dips from the supermarket, but these were amazing! That’s Aly & Michael who help out with this website & our Facebook Group by the way.

I even took pictures of the ingredients, so I could work on making a syn free version so I could gorge on it whilst watching Strictly. To cut a long story short, I forgot about the picture until now – so here we are!


Making this Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus is ridiculously easy. All you do is tip all the ingredients into a blender/food processor/bowl & attack with a stick blender. That is it!

We use this fantastic Kenwood stick blender – so many attachments and really worth it’s weight in gold!


I think it’s actually harder to prep the crudités (we pronounce them as crud-ites – we’re not that posh!). You can have all sorts of different vegetables to dip in this Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus.

The key to a good crudite is to cut them into a shape of a wedge. Cut your carrots, cucumber, celery length ways and on a diagonal. It really helps scoop as much hummus into your mouth as possible without it dropping.


If you’re having a party of friends over, then this Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus really suits being placed in a glass with the crudités in the top. Fabulous finger food for any occasion!

We used ready cooked beetroot, but you could probably use a large pickled one. Just leave out the white wine vinegar, as you probably won’t need it.

Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus

You need a good handful of fresh mint. Above is our herb garden, which we’d be pretty lost without!

We pick the herbs through the summer, and pop any that we don’t use into Ziploc bags and pop them in the freezer for use over the summer months.

If you can’t get hold of any fresh mint you can use 3 tsp of mint sauce. Just make sure to add any additional syns, as mint sauce is not syn free!

  1. Hello, if using cooked beetroot – how much would you use – I have a 300g pack of cooked beetroot (4 small beetroots) and would balsamic vinegar work instead of white wine vinegar?

    I also only have mint concentrate rather than fresh or mint sauce – any idea of quantities I’d need of this?

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Sarah
      We used an average sized beetroot for this recipe so it would probably be 2 small ones. We haven’t tried using Balsamic for this one. You could try, but you will probably only need half the amount. The same with the mint concentrate

  2. Hello Kay
    This looks lovely as usual but I cannot print any pon recipes off there is no print label so each time I print it works out at about 30 pages with all the adverts and comments. Please tell me what I am doing wrong. ☹️ Thanks

    1. Hi Val
      Thanks for getting in touch. Kay is currently working on some printing issues. Thanks for your patience while she tries to sort it out. 🙂

  3. This dip was as nice as any shop bought full fat dip, so tasty and easy to make. Thank you for making this healthy eating adventure so interesting!

  4. Hi, I’m guessing this would also work with chickpeas? That’s all I have just now and this looks delicious 😋, thanks

    1. Hi Nikki
      We haven’t tried freezing this one, so we couldn’t give it a freezer symbol. It will keep pretty well for a couple of days in the fridge in a sealed container. It’ll just need a quick stir before serving. 🙂

  5. Great recipe thank you. Just added a bit of garlic as well and used chickpeas as that’s all I have in. Got my carrots cut up ready to dip in 😉
