Lots of greens washing and prepping got done yesterday as well as a fresh batch of raw almond butter. I filled the FP with a random amount of almonds and got out the only available glass jar. After processing, the butter amount was exactly the volume of the jar, I just love it when things like that happen =) I also dig when I happen to grab the needed number of hangers when I'm doing the ironing, it's the little things that make me happy ;) Tell me you don't relish that too, haha!
The 'universe aligned almond butter jar'
ok, on so some less goofy chatter...
and dessert first. Diana of soapandchocolate did a guest post on Choosing Raw this week and showed us how to make her Andes inspired Raw Mint-Chocolate Cream Bars. As soon as I saw them I knew I had to
the minty green layer. It really is a bit more green than the photo appears, my avocado did it's job =)
and the minty chocolate layer, I also added some raw cacao nibs to this layer.
dessert time =)
This was my first time making a raw dessert that included layers, I was pretty happy with the results. We both loved it and gave it 2 thumbs up, dude ;)' I'm extra cheesebally today.
before dessert, dinner involved a big green salad
and these Nut Butter Crusted Parnip Fries from Oh She Glows.
Hop on over to her site and read how she raves about how stinkin good these are, because they really are! I agree I would not have guessed that pasnips and nut butter would taste so yummy like this. I did change the ratio of nut butters a bit so ours ended up being 1 T peanut butter and about 1.5 T almond butter. I used two decent sized parsnips and 4 medium carrots ( I thought they'd be tasty too and they were!) and was left with extra coating so I'd go with more veggies next time.
ready for their nut bath
this is what bars should serve for frys, seriously.
Ok, I'm off to the chiro (whoop whoop) and going to see Gene Baur later today as well. Hope you have a lovely Friday and as always thanks for reading xoxo
