Nut butter, portion control & ice cube trays.
Did you know that 1 tablespoon is equal to 1 cube in a basic ice cube tray?
This discovery helped me with my day-to-day eating on the go and also has been a brilliant solution for nut or seed butter portion control 101 ... we all know how easy 1 tbsp can turn into 1/2 cup when eyeballed and measured with our stomachs.
Here's what I do. Add a bit of melted coconut oil to my softened nut butter (for me it's sunflower seed).
Coconut oil is solid at room temp and condenses quickly at lower temperature, which allows for the cubes to be stored in the fridge as solid squares and not gooey messes. I like to add in some cinnamon and maple extract, then portion and stick in the the freezer for a bit to harden. Pop out the cubes and store in the fridge.
There you have it - an easy grab and go fat serving without the mess, fuss and no chance to deviate!
