INGREDIENTS

  • 3 green apples
  • 3 tbsp. peanut butter made with the NutraMilk
  • 2–3 strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. pumpkin or sunflower seeds
  • 1 package of candy eyes or use anything that looks like eyes (I used white chocolate chips and painted with some dark melted chocolate)

For peanut butter

  • 2 cups (275g) peanuts (untoasted, unsalted)
  • pinch salt (optional)

INGREDIENTS 

  • Making the peanut butter
    • Place peanuts in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 2-3 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Open the container lid.
    • Check consistency. For this recipe you sent want a very creamy peanut butter that is runny otherwise it will drip and not stick. If needed process a little longer but don't over do it.
  • Quarter the green apples and slice off the core and seeds. Carefully cut out a v-shape into the center of the apple quarter to create the mouth of the monster. Repeat with all the apple pieces.
  • Spread a layer of peanut butter into the monster mouths. Repeat with all apple slices.
  • Press several pumpkin or sunflower seeds onto the top of the mouth along the edge to form teeth. Repeat with all apple slices.

  • Place a triangular piece of the sliced strawberry into each monster mouth.
  • Using the remaining peanut butter, spread a small amount onto the back of the candy eyes and place them on top the the apple slices.
  • Serve immediately!
