Hummus Ice Cream: Delicious or Disgusting?

What happens when you take two amazing, creamy foodstuffs and combine them into a single product? That's what the owner of an ice cream shop in Jaffa, Israel, asked himself before he created hummus-flavored ice cream. Hummus is a Middle Eastern chickpea spread that actually has the same consistency as ice cream, but the olive oil and garlic overtones make it an odd choice for an ice cream flavor.

La Genda owner Michael Mina told an Israeli television station, "I am a hummus freak. I always thought that one day we should make ice cream out of hummus, and after many experiments, we checked the right temperature, the right kind of grains, and achieved the perfect product." Boris Schwartz, who actually makes the ice cream, said, "It is a little strange, not for everyone, it's for people who like special things." They've also tried garlic ice cream, and are working on an avocado flavor. Think you could stomach hummus ice cream?

    People are overweight enough, stop giving them reasons to eat even more.

    Why not invent delicious low fat vegetable ice cream or something? Pumpkin ice cream perhaps?

    I just purchased a $20 ice cream making machine. It has a bowl you must keep in your freezer for 24 hours prior to making your ice cream. This bowl must be wrapped in a plastic bag to keep ice from building up on it and screwing up the recipe. The top of this contraption is simple-an electric motor contained in a domed lid and a small plastic rotating paddle which detaches for cleaning. You add one cup of fruit, quarter cup of confectioners sugar, quarter cup of heavy cream, blend above together, and pour in. A small Ninja blender works perfectly. 30 minutes later you have a sweet little batch of fresh ice cream just enough for two people...It sits on the countertop and you watch it all happen. You can mess around with other formulas...Very cool. She will love it. She will really love it...Serve it in a chilled martini glass with a long silver spoon...Ahhhhoooooo! Send the guests home.

    I chose delicious because I would at least try it before making a decision on if it was good or not.

    Fair enough.

    I'd have loved for them to serve stuff like Hummus at my school. Made a change from the chips, and fried stuff.

    I like the two separate as I am sure most do the same. Hummus alone makes a good spread/dip. Throw some veges in the mix and you got yourself a darn tasty sandwich. Ice Cream is good for dessert.
