      Woweee...this is so good Sharon. After making your Easy Homemade Almond Butter, I knew I had to give this a try using the butter. My banana was frozen and so I opted out of the iceccubes and also the nutritional yeast. The flax seed meal adds a nice texture and just a bit of a crunch. Just the right amount of sweetness with the honey too. I used skim milk for my liquid of choice. Really Really Good!!! Made for Vegn-n-Swap~

      The title says it all in that it is a dream...tastes dreamy...dreamy creamy drink and my new favorite special treat :)...I didn't have the yogurt the first time so I used tofu and sweetened it first with honey and vanilla...made for a thicker shake that way (but almost too thick to drink w/ out a spoon)...got the yogurt the next time and loved it ...a perfect dream (better than the best chocolate milk memory from childhood)...now I have more yogurt and I am very excited 'cause I found chocolate soy to try it with !!! (Have to note to definitely include the nutritional yeast it adds to the flavors dramatically and will not disappoint you)... :) ps... {{I've been playing with it more too...yesterday (inspired by the spoon idea) I made a big batch as "ice dream" ;) ;) :) used a block of tofu added date and nut and seed "chips&chunks" & some coconut butter to add more body... also some cinnamon and chili spices - than put it in the freezer to hide it from myself {{{lol}}} ;)- I have to try to enforce some self control with this one ;) I hope it will help me in my journey away from real ice cream- or at least trick me on the way ;) }}} This potion is a dream come true :)- (it has also inspired my to add cocoa and nut flavors to my spinach drinks) LOVE-love-LOVE it ...Thanks for sharing the dreams Sharon - DE-LISH!!!
