I finally perfected my 6 Ingredient Blender Hummus that's oh so creamy and full of flavor from olive oil, fresh lemon juice, salt & pepper. It's perfect for dipping, spreading, or honestly whatever way you enjoy hummus.

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp filtered water
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • Serve with: fresh vegetables, carrots, broccoli, cucumber, peppers, etc, or pita chips & crackers


  • In a blender, add the lemon juice, olive oil, and filtered water. Blend for 15-30 seconds until combined
  • Add in 1 tsp paprika and 1 tsp garlic salt (or everything but the bagel seasoning, crushed red pepper flakes, whatever you want the hummus to taste like) Pulse 2-3 times in the blender.
