Almond Butter and the Monster under my bed

Peanut Butter is just what my dreams are made of. Its thick, creamy, and maybe the greatest thing to ever be created on this little planet we call earth. But sadly, i've been able to find it raw and being a raw foodist I guess that's defeat....wait...defeat..? DEFEAT?! I know not the meaning of the word! Forget you too stingie peanuts! I got me some raw organic almond butter and will devour it without the likes of you! That's right. Be Jealous........

I've been in a chocolate-peanut butter mood for the past few days and finally decided to get rid of my craving with a dessert that I figured would satisfy my craving. But this wasn't just a little craving. It was a monster craving! A craving bigger than the ravenous beast that sleeps beneath my bed and plots my demise for how he will finish me off if I ever leave my bed before the sun rises..... Yeah, that kind of craving. So for a monster craving, I get a monster dessert! Oh, and he likes bananas...

Almond Butter-Banana-Chocolate Ice Cream
(serves 4 hungry monsters)

2 large bananas
1 c. Almond Butter
1/2 c. Cacao Powder
2 tbsp. Honey/Agave
2 tbsp. Coconut Oil

-Blend everything together in your blender until smooth.

-Use your Ice Cream maker and follow the instructions. Or just pour it into a bowl and freeze for 2-4 hours or until it resembles the texture of ice cream.


Its peanut buttery and its THICK! Kind of like a chocolate-almond butter mcflurry almost, only tastier. I love it! This is the kind of thing I could easily down 5 batches of. Better make extra though, cause the monster under my bed is growling in hunger again..

What guilty pleasure brings out your inner monster?

  1. That looks fab! Personally I don't go guilty pleasures. I do pleasures but I think feeling guilty about them defeats the object. It's one of the reasons I practice intuitive eating. I eat what feels best for my body and my mind at any given time and it turns out that both broccoli and chocolate give me pleasure, it just depends what mood I'm in.

  2. I eat so much raw almond butter that I end up getting more nuts than other food in my diet and get dehydrated. I need to cut back, but they are so good!!!
