Can you guess what I used to make the hummus green?! Hint: it’s not food dye!
Hawaiian spirulina for the win! If you have never heard of spirulina, it is a blue-green algae and one of the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet. If interested, you can read more about it here and the benefits here. I usually add spirulina into my smoothies. I thought it would be a great alternative to using food dye!

– Start by scooping your favorite hummus to a dip bowl. I love Cedar’s roasted red pepper hummus.
– Add a few sprinkles of spirulina and mix. Be sure to start out with a small amount as the color is pretty dense.
– Continue to add more until you reached the color you desire.
I’m sure you are wondering..what does it taste like?! It really doesn’t have a flavor, so you don’t have to worry about your hummus tasting funky. It still tastes the same!
I paired my green hummus with cucumber slices and celery sticks to keep with the St. Patty’s Day theme.
Let me know if you give this a try!
