Healthy Hummus Meal Prep and Storage

Meal Prep: You can make this hummus ahead of time and store in the fridge. I like to do it at least a day before as the flavor gets better as it marinates in the fridge.
Storage: Will hold in the fridge for 6 days, does not hold well in freezer.

Lose Weight By Eating
This Homemade Low Calorie Hummus Recipe is made with canned chickpeas (also know as garbanzo beans).
Best of all, there is no olive oil in this healthy hummus recipe! It helps cut 100's of calories!! But if you really love the flavor olive oil adds, just drizzle a little over the top before serving.
Special Note: I realize that 1 oz of hummus is not a lot to "snack" on but it is the perfect amount for a smear on a sandwich. You can have 1/2 cup (4oz) for just 120 calories!

  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, or garbanzo beans
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • Salt and pepper


  • Drain the liquid from the can of chickpeas into a bowl or measuring cup.
  • Add the chickpeas, garlic cloves, lemon juice, tahini, and 1/2 of the chickpea liquid to a blender.
  • Add in a pinch of salt and pepper and blend until smooth.
  • Taste and add in more salt and pepper as needed. If you like a creamier or thinner hummus recipe, add in a little more of the chickpea liquid, 1 tablespoon at a time until you have reached your desired consistency.


Low Sodium: Omit the salt and add more lemon juice. Also be sure to get low sodium garbanzo beans.
