I make my own hummus, using plain fat free yogurt instead of olive oil. I also soak and cook dried garbanzos which cuts down on the sodium, Add some spices and LOTS of garlic, and you've got a healthy dip for fresh veggies.

My new favorite snack. Puree 2 cups honey roasted peanuts (or almonds) with a banana. Makes a super healthy hummus dip. Dip with celery or carrots.
I like peanut butter, but I do not care for how thick it is. I was wondering if I could add something to thin it out some to make it better for dipping carrots in. So I just tried a banana pureed in with some fresh peanuts and WoW. Really nutricious or (nut - ricious) and filling.
I keep home made hummus in the refrigerator, usually spinach edamame hummus as a quick snack. Sliced cucumber or zucchini make a healthy vehicle for the hummus. I also add it to wraps or pita bread sandwiches.
