Whole Foods & Hyvee Grocery Haul – 02/07/2015

So this week’s grocery haul video is a combination of two places. Hyvee, a local store from the Midwest, as well as Whole Foods market. I spent like $110 dollars, not totally sure and I can’t list the stuff I bought because in the confusion of construction I lost the receipts! Oops, sorry!

Calorie Friendly Peanut Butter Sauce

So this recipe is kinda cheating your brain into thinking you’re eating regular peanut butter, which honestly, I think you are. This is super simple and is a great was to spare your tummy of extra calories while putting a little change back into your wallet.

Ingredients:

1 cup natural peanut butter (no additives, including salt)
3 cups hot water
honey or other sweetener to taste
1/2 tablespoon psyllium husk to rethicken it, optional

(blender also comes in handy, but it not required)

Directions:

Add peanut butter, sweetener, and water to a blender. Blend until smooth (I really blended mine, so that’s why you’ll notice mine is light colored, once the air bubbles go away, it turns dark again). Taste it and adjust seasoning if desired.

At this point it’ll be very soupy, which is what you want however, it doesn’t make a very spreadable peanut butter for sandwiches and the like. At this stage you can optionally add psyllium husk & it will rethicken it. Blend well and let set for 15 minutes (it would be a good idea to set in fridge, because after this sets its hard to take out of a blender), you’ll notice it gets really thick. If after 30 minutes you think its still too liquidy, you can add more.

 

Makes about 4 cups , Preparation time: 2 minutes, Cook time: None!

Dietary notes: Contains peanuts (obviously:)
