Drain garbanzo beans, reserving the liquid. Place garbanzo beans, sesame oil, Lemon Vitality, garlic, and cumin in a food processor. Pulse until smooth. Add the reserved liquid a little at a time, pulsing between each addition until you reach your desired consistency. Adjust taste with salt and pepper and other herbs and spices that suit your taste.

Serve with veggies and pretzels for a tasty and balanced after-school snack.

Sip on a refreshing glass of lemon-infused water while the kids dig into their treats. Add a drop of Lemon Vitality to chilled, purified water or to a sparkling drink while relaxing for a moment before the family jumps into homework.

Clean environment = happy and healthy kids

Having a clean learning environment is key to keeping your kids happy and healthy this school year. Send your children to school with the tools they need to keep clean as they learn. For quick cleaning on the go, use Thieves® Hand-Sanitizing Wipes or Thieves Waterless Hand Sanitizer.
