I may not be able to tell you what day it is, but I can tell you that a quick, easy, and tasty recipe you can make anytime with just a few ingredients you probably have in your pantry is hummus.

  • 2 Tbsp tahini
  • 1 scoop Keto Elevate
  • Drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  1. Add first five ingredients to a food processor and blend.
  2. Slowly add olive oil and continue blending until a smooth, creamy consistency is reached.
  3. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Enjoy with fresh, sliced veggies and/or pita wedges.
