It's back to school for the little ones and the grown-ups. It's the return of lunchboxes, and sometimes, we might lack imagination. It’s always great to treat yourself to something new. Here’s a fresh hummus that’s tasty, healthy, and practical—and one that can be reinvented based on the herbs we have on hand. It can not only be enjoyed as a dip but also as a spread on your sandwich, like a mayonnaise. The result is a surprisingly delicious and nourishing sandwich.
Enhance your hummus with probiotics!
You want to include more probiotics in your diet? To do so, consider adding probiotics to some of your recipes, such as this delicious homemade hummus! It’s an original and delicious way to pamper your gut microbiota.
By incorporating a small bottle of Bio-K+ Original Unsweetened Dairy Drinkable Probiotic, this recipe for fresh herb hummus is not only enhanced in texture, but also boosted with all the benefits provided by the 50 billion live, active bacteria included in each bottle. These bacteria make their way to your intestines, where it really counts!
Get ready for a day at the office brightened up by so much flavor and goodness!
1½ cups cooked chickpeas, rinsed and drained (14 fl.oz. if canned)

Good to know
Keep hummus chilled until you’re ready to eat it, even in the lunchbox! That way, you’ll keep the good bacteria active.
