    Sounds good. I don’t have peanut butter jar to examine, but almond butter has 16 grams of fat in two tablespoons. Too muuch for me.

      Some fat is essential in your diet for bodily functions, shiny hair, soft skin, etc. and tree nut butter is a good fat, as is olive oil. Fried chicken skin is not.

      Fat is necessary to feel full and critical for the absorbtion of several vitamins Including A, D, E and K.

      Dont’ be afraid of good fats; but Yes, cutting out fatty foods like Mac and cheese, hot dogs or pizza is wise.

      But a fat-free yogurt laden with chemicals that has 0 grams of fat and 110 calories per serving is entirely more toxic, less healthy and will leave you unsated, while 2 Tbsp of almond butter w 200 calories rich with omega 3s, protein, fiber and numerous other nutrients will keep you full longer and provides your body with nutrients needed to function.

    Yummy. I make something similar but peel and freeze the bananas first, then you don’t need ice. Delicious either way 😉
