Toasted Almond Butter & Honeydew Melon Sandwich

This is as simple as it gets, yet a bit different than your traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Roasting almonds, releases the healthy oils which contribute to a particularly delicious flavor, then you process them in the NutraMilk for a quick, creamy and delicious butter. Instead of using jam, we chose fresh fruit which is a much healthier alternative, lower in sugar and full of vitamins and antioxidants. When in season, honeydew melon is especially sweet and goes perfectly with roasted almond butter on toasted bread. Enjoy!
