Now, onto our guest post today via a MORSELICIOUS local nut butter company. Mmmm.
Hello, Morselist readers! Our names are Travis and Vicki, and we’re the creators of Nuttin’ Butter. Nuttin’ Butter is an LA-based business dedicated to nut butters, one of mankind’s greatest inventions. Our two-person operation creates gourmet peanut butters, almond butters, and peanut-almond-cashew butter blends using all-natural, high-quality ingredients. No fillers, no polysyllabic stuff—everything we use is recognizable and, more importantly, damn tasty.
We’re stopping by Mo’s blog to tell you about one of our favorite flavor creations, ‘Mega Rich. Not simply an almond butter, ‘Mega Rich is a blend of dry-roasted almonds, raw walnuts, roasted golden flax seeds, and a sprinkle of sea salt—that’s it! Walnuts and flax seeds are the best sources of Omega-3s (other than fish, which wouldn’t taste nearly as good in an almond butter), which are essential fatty acids linked to brain health and much more. Not only does ‘Mega Rich provide Omega-3s for your brain, protein for your muscles, and healthy fats for your heart, but it also contains lots of delicious nutty goodness for your taste buds—hey, they’re important, too!
Now, our ‘Mega Rich pairs well with many different foods—apple slices, carrot and celery sticks, and rice cakes, to name a few—but we enjoy it most in smoothie form. As busy as we are running this business, we need our meals to be portable and easily prepared, but still jam-packed with essential nutrients. That’s why we came up with the recipe to this nutritional powerhouse:
A ‘Mega Rich Morning
1 ripe banana, unpeeled
2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2/3 cup old-fashioned oats (optional, but great when you need an extra-filling breakfast)
4 ice cubes
1.5 cups frozen kale or fresh spinach (add more ice if using fresh)
2 tablespoons ‘Mega Rich
1 teaspoon cinnamon
-Throw everything into a blender and blend until smooth. The ‘Mega Rich adds a nice crunch to the smoothie, which is important for achieving satiety.
Hope you guys enjoy the smoothie recipe! If you’d like to read more about our story and our line of artisan, all-natural, all-delicious nut butters, please visit our About Us page. We also have an online store that lists our entire flavor line-up, including two new seasonal additions! (What better way to celebrate the holidays?)
Big thanks to Mo for sharing her awesome blog with us!
