Who said living the detox maintenance lifestyle had to be boring? This is a fun snack, that everyone from aged 2 to 92 will enjoy, and it is very filling too. Just slice the banana lengthways, spread a little almond butter on one half, and close it up.
I have been making this "sandwich" a lot recently,
because my eating routine has been severely upset by playing La Bohéme every other night. The performance begins at 8pm, and as I

snack to eat at 7pm and keeps me going through the three-and-a-half hours of
Now that I have learned how to make almond butter, I am putting it into everything. Yesterday I made a delicious vegetarian casserole, using mushrooms and swiss chard as my main ingredients, together with some diced sweet potato. The magic started to happen when I added some home-made vegetable stock, and just before serving, I added two teaspoonfuls of almond butter.
¡Qué rico! as they say here in Mexico. The almond butter not only added a deliciously rich nutty flavour but also thickened the sauce. Absolutely delicious.
I made a delicious fruit smoothie the other day, using mango, blackberries, apple juice and yogurt, and added a teaspoonful of almond butter.
The next batch of almond butter I make, I will try dry-roasting the almonds for ten minutes first, and will be interested to taste the difference in flavour.
