Ingredients

  • 1 15.5 oz can chickpeas (i.e., garbanzo beans), drained and rinsed
  • 1 scant 1/4 cup superfine granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk of your choice (I used original almond milk)
  • 1.5 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 3 tablespoons coconut cream

Instructions

  • (optional) After the initial draining and soaking step, soak chickpeas in a bowl of water for 20 minutes. Drain and rinse. Let chickpeas continue to drain in a sieve over a bowl for 10 minutes.
  • While chickpeas are soaking, measure out a scant 1/4 cup of granulated sugar. Put into a blender and blend until sugar is superfine.
  • Add all ingredients to a high powered blender and blend until smooth. You might have to periodically scrape down the sides.

Notes

If using peeled chickpeas, you might want to consider altering how much liquid you add in, otherwise you might find it too runny. I love the recipe as is, but you might not. If you are worried about it being too runny, do not add the 2 tablespoons milk of your choice.
