Creamy Hummus Recipe Made With Greek Yogurt

Hummus is one of my favorite things. Today I’m sharing my best hummus recipe with you along with a giveaway for a *big* box full of Late July Organic Tortilla Chips for dipping. I’ve collaborated with Stonyfield to bring you this post.

UPDATE: The giveaway has ended.

Best Hummus Recipe, made super creamy by the addition of Greek Yogurt

Hummus is one of my favorite things. And I’ve made my share of hummus. What I’ve come to realize is that I’m not a huge tahini fan. Sorry. I’m just not. Somehow I like hummus better without it.

Once I realized this, I decided to find another way to achieve that layer of creaminess that whipped tahini adds to a delicious hummus recipe. I tried adding extra olive oil. I tried a touch of cream. I even tried popping all the chickpeas out of their skins, which is supposed to make hummus smoother.

But none of these created the rich and smooth hummus that I was looking for.

And then Stonyfield and Late July Organic teamed up and asked me to create a dip using yogurt that would be perfect as a dip for the organic and delicious Late July Chips. I bit into a multigrain sea salt chip and knew instantly that the dip had to be hummus. And then I realized that Greek yogurt was what my hummus was missing.

Since coming up with this hummus recipe I’ve made several batches and have eaten them all. I even ate some for breakfast one day! It’s really that good.

Creamy, fresh, garlicky – the best hummus I’ve ever made, for sure.

Now here’s my creamy hummus recipe with Greek Yogurt!

Creamy Hummus Recipe Made With Greek Yogurt

I find that every head of garlic has a different amount of pungency. This recipe calls for one clove, which was plenty garlicky enough the times that I made it. But if your garlic is weak, or if you just can't get enough of it, go ahead and add extra. Yields 1 and 1/4 cups of hummus.


  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1-16oz. can low-sodium chick peas, drained (you can pop the skins off if you like how much smoother this makes the hummus but I can never
  • be bothered)
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice


Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse to get it going and then blend until smooth.

      Thanks Sarah!

    I made this with 2 cloves and yikes! It almost has a spice to it form the overload of garlic. I’m sure it’s good for me so I’m going to still eat it. I’ll defi make it again with just one clove!

    We always use Greek Yogurt for anything that calls for yogurt and we add smoked paprika and cumin and cilantro to our hummus – no tahini…

      Hi Patricia, Your hummus sounds fantastic! I love smoked paprika but have never added it to hummus. I’m going to try that next time. Have a great day! -Christine

    I LOVE dill pickle dip!

  6. Rust — February 12, 2014 @ 11:22 am (#)

    I like cumin in hummus also.

    I have to say avocado – is that a fruit? :)

  8. Heather — February 12, 2014 @ 9:28 am (#)

    My favorite fruit dip is marshmallow fluff mixed with cream cheese. Heaven on Earth!!

    My grandchildren love the tang of yogurt, so I simply dehydrate fruits and then use my blender to make fruit powders. They love to mix their own dips by adding a bit of strawberry , banana or peach powder or they just have fun and mix different powders. Some of their dips are quite creative but when they finish lots of tasting they dip their apple slices in. (One note: Kiwi powder does not taste anything like fresh Kiwi)

    My favorite fruit dip is a combination of cream cheese, powdered sugar and whipped cream!

    Two of my favorites; stony field yogurt and late July chips. Healthy snacking!

  12. itzia — January 30, 2014 @ 4:52 pm (#)

    fresh fruit and yogurt.

    Hummus is one of my favorite foods. I’ve already made it twice this week! I put roasted acorn squash in one recipe and it was so yummy! Can’t wait to try it with greek yogurt. Thanks for the opportunity to win. The chips look awesome!
    And as far as a fruit dip goes does chocolate count?

    Hmmm, favorite fruit dip? I’m not sure since I don’t usually use dip with fruit. LOVE hummus and can’t wait to try this version made with my favorite Greek yogurt.

  15. Nicole k. — January 29, 2014 @ 11:52 am (#)

    I’ve never made hummus before, but my 9 year old loves it , so I’d like to try to make my own soon :)

    • Christine Pittman — January 29, 2014 @ 1:05 pm (#)

      Nicole, Let me know how it turns out!

  16. Liz — January 29, 2014 @ 11:51 am (#)

    Greek yogurt–what a great idea! I don’t mind tahini, but I usually leave out lemon juice. I like to add a dash of cayenne, red pepper flakes, and cumin. And I use a couple cloves of elephant garlic instead of regular garlic. Now I’ll give the yogurt a try. Thanks for sharing!

    • Christine Pittman — January 29, 2014 @ 1:05 pm (#)

      Great ideas, Liz. I often put cumin in mine but never think of adding something spicy. Will do!

    AHHH-MAZING recipe, Christine! I’m happily munching on Mild Green Mojo chips as I type this comment. SO delicious, but the Stonyfield yogurt is the key to my current state of happiness :)

    • Christine Pittman — January 29, 2014 @ 1:06 pm (#)

      It certainly is good stuff. Both the chips and the yogurt. Yum! (Thanks!)
