The school year is winding down which means summer will soon be in session, and will summer comes plenty of family days and outdoor events for your family and friends to enjoy. Therefore, it’s time to ditch the heavy soups and stews your body craves during the winter, for lighter fare — especially finger foods — such as hummus, which packs a healthy and flavorful punch your family will love.

Kids are picky eaters. Period. As such, planning a summer family day with foods the whole family will enjoy — and that are healthy — can difficult if not all but impossible. Luckily, hummus has you covered.

Hummus dips combine the best of both worlds in terms of what kinds of foods kids will gravitate towards. Not only are hummus dip recipes tasty, but they’re fun to experiment with by dipping different vegetables, breads, and even other foods such as chicken wings into. If there’s one thing that’s for certain, kids love finger foods and they love to do the dip.

There are a variety of hummus brands and varieties available in most grocery stores nowadays, however, making your own variety at home is just as easy. In fact, you might just be able to create a hummus flavor combination your family, especially your kids, will love so much that they’ll ask for me!

For example, cheesy buffalo chicken hummus is an easy flavor combination that can be recreated at home. Start off with a traditional hummus base of pureed chickpeas, fresh lemon juice, garlic, tahini (ground sesame seed paste), a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and salt to taste. Then, combine cubed chicken breast with your favorite buffalo style wing sauce and enough bleu cheese for your liking and add a scoop or two of this to your homemade hummus base. It’s that easy!
