Hummus is the star of any meze board and the dip that always runs out quickest at the buffet. Most of the time, a good shop bought hummus is pretty good, but have you ever felt a little let down when it's never as good as the one you had at your local Middle Eastern restaurant?

I am here to answer your prayers. After a lot of trial and error, I have finally found the perfect recipe, using Tefal's Infiny Mix+ high speed blender, to create the smoothest creamiest hummus. The secret ingredient? Ice. Don't knock it till you try it!

  • Just made the hummus….YUM! I didn’t have sumac s I substituted Zahtar and Tajin.

    Heated the pita on the roll/muffin setting on my microwave. Ooo, hot pita does makes a difference. Delicious and very easy to make.

  • I take it the ice cubes speed the cooling process while adding the required liquid. Brilliant! 💛
