Hello lovelies ♥ how are you? Some weeks ago I discovered that my sweety Nutella has dairy products and I'm intolerant ;-; so after 15 years I have to say goodbye to Nutella! Well, now I feel really good, no more tummy ache! *yohoo But I had to find some other foods to eat on the breakfast and in the afternoon. I'm trying different things in different ways, here it is one of those ones: peanut butter!
Peanut butter is one of the creams/butters I wanted to make also because in my country it's difficult to find and it's expensive ;o; If you want to make it, below you can find the ingredients and how to make it. I didn't take pictures ;-; well I forgot it!
Peanut Butter: Ingredients
- 600g pre-toasted peanuts (500g shelled peanuts)
- 2 spoons of honey
- 2 spoons of peanut oil
- 1 spoon of salt (if you want)
How to make it
Shell the peanuts (don't do it in once, your finger will hurt! ;-;), then transfer the peanuts to a blender. Run the blender continuously for 3 minutes, after this the butter will be glossy and soft. Add the honey, the peanut oil and if you want the salt. Run the blender for other 2 minutes until it becomes completely smooth, taste it and adjust it as you prefer! Then transfer the peanut butter to a container and put it into the fridge. It will last for about 2 weeks.
But is this butter healthy for us? Here it is some information:
Peanut butter contains more than just the classic vitamins and minerals. There are also plenty of other biologically active nutrients in foods, which can have some health benefits.
A 100 gram portion of peanut butter supplies a whole bunch of vitamins and minerals:
Vitamin E: 45% of the RDA
Vitamin B3 (Niacin): 67% of the RDA
Vitamin B6: 27% of the RDA
Folate: 18% of the RDA
Magnesium: 39% of the RDA
Copper: 24% of the RDA
Manganese: 73% of the RDA
Research shows that eating peanuts can decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic health conditions. Even though peanut butter is quite nutritious, it may also contain substances that cause harm. So take care that we should eat it without exaggerating!
Soon I might make some posts with my new and healthy diet and other recipes. If you want to know more about dairy intolerance just ask me ^-^ I think I can help you in some way or you can help me! I also want to make other types of creams such as almond cream ~
