Purium’s Superfoods PB & J
Peanut butter and jelly is a family staple. Yet nut allergies are no joke. Even without the allergies, peanuts aren’t the healthiest “nut” (it’s actually a legume). On top of that store-bought jars of peanut butter and jelly can be loaded with preservatives, sugar and not much kid-friendly stuff. Luckily, you can make your own superfoods version with Purium!
First, you’ll need to make Coconut Barley Butter (Faux Peanut Butter).
What You’ll Need:
6 tbsp. Purium Activated Barley
6 tbsp. Purium Rice Bran Solubles
4 tbsp. Purium Organic Tropic Oil (You may want to warm until it is soft or liquid).
2 tbsp. honey (raw, locally sourced) or pure maple syrup
Himalayan salt (to taste)
- Mix all ingredients together until smooth.
- Let the mix sit for 5 minutes.
This mix can also be served with crackers (whole-grain, rice or lentil), celery or apple slices.
You got the Faux Peanut Butter down and now it’s time for the Cherry Jam! Whip up your very own Tart Cherry Preserves!
What You’ll Need
1/2 cup Apothe-Cherry
20 fresh cherries
Pectin (to desired thickness)
- Mix cherries and Apothe-Cherry.
- Add pectin in slowly to thicken up jam.
Now you have your faux peanut butter and jelly. Set out with crackers or spread on bread for the perfect afternoon snack.
