New Nut Butter Experiment

by HEAB on July 14, 2009

Look, I used my homemade nut butter method to make raw Brazil Nut Butter:

It turned out soooo thin, but it was really yummy drizzled on Gena’s Lime-In-The-Coconut Smoothie:

My Smoothie in A Bowl contained the following:

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 frozen avocado
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 peeled lime
  • 1/2 packet stevia
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1/2 tsp guar gum (The gums really fluff up the mix.  Love them!!  Thanks again to reader Deb for sending them to me).
  • Handful of ice

Normally, I don’t keep my nut butters in the fridge as I like them a bit runny, but the Brazil Nut butter needed a little cold love.  After a couple of days in the fridge, it solidified into the most perfect spread for…


Tropical Pancakes

In keeping with a South American theme, I topped my protein pancakes with a spoonful of Artisana’s raw coconut butter, 1 spoonful of Brazil Nut Butter, 1/2 a fried plantain, and 1 tsp of maple syrup. Katie, how’s that for some pancakes?!?

Don’t forget to enter my Almond Butter Giveaway.  You have until midnight tonight (Tuesday, July 14).

P.S. I finally got my haircut.  I’m a blond again…with a little pink, just for fun. :)
