DELICIOUS

Description

I always find that my family only eats fruit and veggies when I cut them up. So there's always a nice big platter in the front of my refrigerator, so they have something healthy to snack on.

And what could be better with fresh veggies than some creamy Hummus. I am absolutely addicted to this delicious "Beetroot Hummus”. It’s a gorgeous, bright purple and it couldn’t be easier to make.

The rainbow of colors on this platter, means that it is loaded with tons of different vitamins and nutrients that are good for them.

Healthy and delish
