LIFE-CHANGING MARZIPAN & BUTTERSCOTCH ICE CREAM SUNDAE


I was going to call this Sex In a Bowl but that would've been NSFW. Anyways, that's what it SHOULD be called. It's... unreal. It's... perfection. It's... heaven. I can't say enough about it so I'm just gonna keep this post short and say: you need this in your LIFE. It is so easy to make, and I have been whipping it up daily for the past week because now I can't live without it. I very seriously think to myself: as long as I have a life supply of this, everything is okay. You will understand once you make it. One of the best parts of this three ingredient recipe (besides the fact that it's mouthgasmic and yes, has only three ingredients) is that it's really good for you! The only ingredients - drum roll, please - are frozen bananas to make the ice cream, almond butter for the marzipan, and carob syrup for the butterscotch. The world is too good to us.



I have to take a moment to cry with joy about one of the three ingredients specifically. It's the almond butter, the almond butter from Prana Bio, and it is my new lover. I am a bit of a plant/music slut in the way that I so quickly switch to a new lover every month or so. In 2014 I declared I was married to my record player but having an affair with mangoes (and also had another thing with raw chocolate on the side but the mangoes don't know so shh), in January all my loyalty and heart fell to baked yams, and now I have wasted no time in moving on to pronouncing my dreamy, creamy honeymoon with this almond butter. I know, I know. Do I have any true love? Yes! I truly love all these things! But I get into phases where I am totally obsessed... and right now the obsessive devotion is turned fully towards Prana Bio's almond butter. It literally tastes like liquid marzipan and is like no other almond butter you've ever had. The ONLY ingredient is blanched organic almonds. HELLO. Plus it's super smooth and thin so you can drizzle on it on errthang. And I mean.... ERRTHANG. 

Call me what you will, but I don't see why I can't have my records, mangoes, chocolate, yams, banana ice cream and almond butter and enjoy them all at the same time! Wow... what would a fruit + record player orgy look like? Probably very juicy, with a good beat. Okay I don't know where I am going with this anymore so enough sexual allusion to me and my food and music. JUST MAKE THIS RECIPE FOR THE SAKE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD. And elevate your life to the next level, buy the almond butter from Prana. For $30 you get a whole kilogram which will last you for approximately 8,000 years. Or for me, it will last about 8 hours. 


MARZIPAN & BUTTERSCOTCH SUNDAE
Serves: me

3 peeled, chopped, frozen bananas
1 tablespoon carob syrup or maple syrup 

Blend the bananas in a high speed blender until smooth and creamy like soft serve. Add some non-dairy milk if needer. Scoop into a bowl and drizzle on the almond butter and syrup. Swirl. Spoon. It just got sexual.

After reading all about how amazing this organic almond butter is, i click on the site, and my heart has broken. I cannot buy it in Australia. I guess i'll just have to search around for one that does taste like Marzipan but using organic australian almonds. Reading your posts are a highlight of my days.

You are hilarious and so fun to listen to! I am very excited to try this...but FIRST! I must order this special almond butter. And second, I must buy carob syrup. I did not know it existed. Is it high glycemic? Quick google search will answer that right after I click "done", hehee, so consider that rhetoric. Have a great day!

I too have many (swiftly changing) food lovers revolving around nut butters and root veggies. I love love when such decadent recipes are so simple. No need to complicate things – just pure bliss! :)

Helen said...

Goodness! This sounds sensual. I am going for it for real... After my sweet potato fries that are currently caramelising in the oven have been lovingly devoured.

Patti said...

Looks ahhhhh-mazing but I can't buy the Prana almond butter either. Apparently it's only available in Canada?!? :(

Magdalena said...

Looks really fab! How would you do the almond butter yourself to add the marzipan taste and the creamy constancy? I live in Sweden and can't buy from Prana. All the almond butters here are more sturdy, not as the one you are using.
All the best, Magdalena

Looks great! Thanks for sharing!!!

Sonia said...

I just came across your site and had been sipping on my smoothie of frozen bananas, cashew milk, tiny bit of maple syrup and a drop of vanilla!! It was perfect, just what I had been in the mood for. I will have to see if I can find carob syrup and try it with that. I look forward to reading more of your recipes.

It looks amazing, the almond butter is no raw for anyone strictly raw but you could use a raw almond butter, you just wouldn't be able to drizzle it.

Kelly said...

I have been obsessing about this since you posted the pic on Instagram. Ordered the Prana almond butter and just received today. Made it as an after school snack, and it was a hit! So delicious. So worth the wait.

If this almond butter tastes like marzipan it must be made from bitter almonds, you should watch how much you consume !

Bianca said...

Hey Emily! What brand carob syrup do you use? Thanks :)

So, lots of people saying they can't get the Prana almond butter --> you can actually make your own! It's all about the almonds.. get really good organic almonds- ones that you immediately know the difference when you eat them. Put up to 3 cups in your hardiest blender/food processor and blend... keep blending.. love takes patience. That's right, keep blending.. once it looks like wet sand you're starting to get there. It'll start to come together and look like you're done, you're not, keep going. Once it's glossy and shiny, you've got easy peasy homemade almond butter. If you want the nice pale almond butter- you'll have to blanch the almonds first, then peel them (easier once blanced) while they are still wet and warm.
You can make butter out of any of your favorite nuts using the same method.
Side note- I love your posts! I'm not vegan (not by a long shot!) but I am always looking for ways to be better to my body. Thank you for your blog!
