The BEST Creamy Hummus


Super creamy and smooth hummus made right at home! This hummus is fluffy and airy with a delicious nutty taste. With an irresistibly smooth texture and nodes of citrus and garlic, this could be the. best. humus. ever.


  • 1 15-oz garbanzo beans
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup cold water
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Drain and rinse the garbanzo beans then pour into a pot of water and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and let the beans cook for another 10 - 15 minutes until soft
  2. Drain the beans then peel the “skin” off each bean by pinching them between your fingers (this should be easy after we cooked the beans)
  3. Place the peeled garbanzo beans and the garlic in a food processor and process until pureed. While the processor is running, pour in the cold water and lemon juice and continue to process until well mixed
  4. Open the lid and scrap down the sides then add the baking soda, tahini, and sea salt and process further for 3 - 5 minutes until light and fluffy; add a Tbsp more water to make the mixture more fluffy and airy and 1/4 more tahini if you prefer thicker hummus
