I don’t have anything inspiring for you today. Unless you get inspired by delicious chocolate hazelnut spread that is good enough to eat by the spoonful. I took my grandmother grocery shopping today and found this dangerous beast staring at me straight in the face:
I love nutella. I could eat a whole (regular) sized jar in one sitting, that’s why I don’t buy it very often. It is extremely hard to have self-control around that jar of goodness. My grandmother saw me taking pictures of it and asked if I wanted it (she always offers to buy me things when I take her grocery shopping). I didn’t know how to say, “I’m taking pictures for my blog” in Italian…so I just said no.
Instead, I chose two sample packages of new nut butters to try! I have been dying to taste cashew butter and the macadamia nut butter reminded me of Hawaii so I got some of that too.
Don’t ask about the mandarin oranges or blueberries. It was my grandmother’s doing. I get blueberries every.single.time. even though I don’t ask for them. I’m not complaining though…they are perfect for pancakes!
I put my nut butter to use right away and made clean ice cream! Yes, you read that correctly: CLEAN ice cream. I have spoken about it on the blog before but I took it to a whole new level today. It’s just a frozen banana and a serving of plain Greek yogurt (blended together in a food processor) to make the ice cream. I topped it with half a package of my new cashew butter and some sugar-free chocolate chips! Go put your ripe bananas in the freezer right now and make this for dessert tonight!
I hope everyone has an amazing long weekend! Tonight Dean wants to go on a “mini date” which usually means putting on stretchy pants and a baggy sweater, going to eat vegan food (my fav), and maybe a movie (hopefully I can coerce him into seeing The Vow). We are wild.
What are your weekend plans?!
What is your ultimate favourite nut butter?
