Great Summer Recipes
justins nutty dirt n worms

It’s my favorite childhood classic with a better-for-you twist! This recipe combines with most delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Avocado Pudding with organic gummy worms, crushed cookies, and, of course, a Nut Butter Cup. Time to treat your inner child, my friend.

Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter Churro Doughnuts with cinnamon sticks in the background on a white background

I’m a sucker for a great doughnut, but sometimes I want to eat a whole dozen of them. My doctor tells me that eating that much fried dough isn’t good for me, but I’ve found a loophole. My Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter “Churro” Doughnuts are baked not fried. You still probably shouldn’t eat a dozen of them by yourself though.

 

Orange Creamsicle Smoothie Bowl with a sliced orange & banana, with scattered banana slices, orange jelly, and coconut flakes

Think back to how satisfying an orange creamsicle is on a hot summer day. Did you get a visual? Well, this recipe blends that flavor into a delicious smoothie bowl. Infuse it with JUSTIN’S® Vanilla Almond Butter and you have yourself a treat. The best part of this Orange Creamsicle Smoothie Bowl is it uses natural ingredients and cuts out all the artificial flavors. It’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth.

 

White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies stacked and the top one bitten on a white background with a black cooling tray

My whole life is making delicious nut butters. Is it any wonder that my favorite type of cookie is a peanut butter cookie? I do like to add a little variety to my favorite treats, though. Chopped white chocolate peanut butter cups are a welcome addition to this White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cookies recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Smoothie in clear cups with white and gray striped straws on a white background

I would say something like “Enjoy the taste of childhood PB&J with this Peanut Butter & Jelly Smoothie,” but that would imply that adults don’t eat PB&J sandwiches. That is not true at all for this adult. If you love Peanut Butter & Jelly just as much as me, then you will like this smoothie.
