Almond Butter Apple Dip

1 cup organic almond butter
1/4 cup organic pure maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Organic sprinkles (optional)
and Apples… lots of them.

Stir together almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.  Carefully cut apples into wedges.  Enjoy with apple wedges and a burst of sprinkles.   It is not unusual for our family to consume ten apples when combined with this delicious dip. I do not always add a full 1/4 cup maple syrup when we enjoy this dip… sometimes only add a tablespoon or two.  This recipe is incredibly flexible, so play around with the quantities.

Peanut butter can be used in substitution of the almond butter, but be careful…  While peanut butter is extremely delicious, peanuts contain arachidonic acid that can promote inflammation, causing further harm to injuries, already inflamed tissues, and constipation/irritable bowel.

 

I was referred to this YouTube video by a friend, and I fell in love. This girl is absolutely adorable, and the argument she makes about the benefits of organic foods is irresistible.
