Hum-missed you all so here is a new recipe for a beautiful, super creamy, pink pitaya hummus! Okay, so I know it sounds a bit odd to add fruit in your hummus, but the neutral flavor of pitaya adds a pop of Spring colors and nutrient like vitamin C, betalains, carotenoids, prebiotic fiber, and magnesium to an already protein packed dish. So even though we are stuck indoors, let’s celebrate some spring colors with this hot pink hummus!
