Add This To Your Strawberry And Banana Smoothie And Drink It!

Oh so yummy and much healthier than peanut butter :)


Pinch of salt


How you make the butter...

Use as many almonds as you like, that little pot you see in the picture was made from a large handful of almonds. Although once made it keeps in the fridge for a few months, so you can make a large batch if you want (I only make it in small quantities because otherwise I will sit in the kitchen with a spoon and gobble the lot).
Lay your almonds onto a baking tray and roast them in the oven at 180c for a few minuets, until you start to smell them becoming all delicious.
Now simply put them into a food blender with a pinch of salt and keep on blending until they turn into a smooth peanut butter type of consistency.
And that's all there is to it! :) 
If you're making a small batch like me, I found using a hand blender better. Just pop the roasted almonds into a tall jug and as long as you cover the top with a tea towel it won't make a mess.  

Happy eating!
Love and all that jazz x
