Do you need any special ingredients to make Easter Hummus Pots?

Hummus is impossible to make without a blender or a food processor!  When it comes to small kitchen electricals, we often find that buying the cheapest is a false economy!

So pick yourself a decent blender, and let it do all of the hard work for you. There are plenty of blenders/food processors choose from over on Amazon UK.

Odd I know – but a must to get the full effect! We grabbed some 7.5cm plant pots from Amazon, as our local garden centre didn’t have any small ones.

As for the inner, you can line with clingfilm, use a dip pot like we did or even a disposable cup. Just make sure you don’t put the hummus directly into the plant pot, otherwise, you’ll have some cleaning up to do!

Of course, you’ll need to fill your Easter Hummus Pots with some hummus! We have soooo many different slimming friendly hummus recipes to choose from and they all take less than 15 minutes to prepare.
