The Hummus & Pita Co., a Mediterranean fast casual concept with locations in New York City and more to come as it expands across the country, has announced an unconventional but exciting new product to debut in May.

Starting Sunday, May 13 on National Hummus Day, customers can get Hummus Shakes. These all-natural dessert shakes are made with a blended base of real chickpeas, tahini, banana, dates, and almond milk. They are based on the idea behind the company’s dessert hummus flavors, turning a usually savory product into something sweet.

The shake is available in five vegan, gluten, and dairy-free flavors, including original, chocolate, strawberry, pistachio, and butter pecan. They are high in protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and are low in calories. They contain healthy, natural fats that fuel the body. 

“Since launching our selection of dessert hummus last year to much fanfare, I was inspired to once again transform the Mediterranean ingredients found on the menu at The Hummus & Pita Co. into something new and unexpected,” says The Hummus & Pita Co. founder Dave Pesso. “When I finally found the perfect combination of ingredients for the Hummus Shake, which superbly mimic the flavors and textures of a real shake, I even surprised myself.”

The innovative Hummus Shake will be available for $5 (12 oz.) at all Hummus & Pita Co. locations nationwide, including those slated to open in the coming months in Connecticut, Colorado, New Jersey, Michigan, and California. Free samples of the new shake will be handed out to all guests in-store on National Hummus Day, and it will be offered as a buy one, get one free promotion through Sunday, May 20.
