Healthy Fat Free Hummus Recipe without Oil or Tahini
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
  • 2-15 oz Cans of Chickpeas, Drained & Rinsed in Ice Water
  • ⅛ to ¼ Cup of Greek Fat Free Plain Yogurt
  • 4 Garlic Cloves, Minced
  • 3-4 Tablespoons of Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Himalayan Pink Sea Salt to taste
  • Fresh Cracked White Ground Pepper
  • ¼ Teaspoon of Sweet Paprika (Optional)
  • ⅛ Teaspoon of Cumin (Optional)
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (Optional)
  • Ice Cubes
  1. Drain and rinse the chickpeas in ice water using a colander. Shake well and lay them out on paper towels. Take a few paper towels and dab dry. Let them dry out for about 1 hour. After 1 hour, it will be easy to "peel" the skins off the chickpeas. You don't have to peel them, but I do and it produces a very silky taste to the hummus.
  2. In a food processor, combine ½ of the chickpeas beans and start pureeing. While pureeing, add a ice cube and continue pureeing. Add remaining chickpeas and another ice cube and puree.
  3. Add in the yogurt, garlic cloves, lemon juice and pink sea salt.
  4. Taste and adjust ingredients using more of what you like. Add ground white pepper and cumin and mix again (if adding).
  5. Garnish with a sprinkling of sweet paprika, cumin or red pepper flakes if using.
  6. If you are going to eat the next day, then refrigerate. If you are going to eat soon after making, leave at room temperature or refrigerate. Promptly refrigerate leftover hummus.
  7. On the Weight Watchers Personal Points Plan, if you chose Beans as a Zero Point Food, then each serving is 0 PP. If you did not chose Beans as a Zero Point Food, each serving is 3 PP.
