If you are utilizing store-bought, it’s optimal to get them newly made at a ready foods respond to or an antipasto bar, yet you could utilize shaken as long as they have not been protected with vinegar, which could offer the hummus excessive undesirable tanginess (when I make homemade hummus I simulate to include a percentage of lemon juice supply illumination and also level of acidity, yet excessive “sour/tart” shakes off the mouthwatering taste equilibrium of the dip).
