Ok so yes I love a quick meal, life's busy, works crazy and I tend to get HANGRY. Meaning when I get home from a marathon day of sessions, meetings and workouts I usually need to eat pretty god damn quickly.
So there I was in this state, HANGRY, tired and craving all the comfort food, pretty much on the pesto vibes so bad I could have rolled around in it. Gimme gimme gimme. There's something magical about pesto. It's one of those instant gratification tastes, comforting and almost like a cuddle. However us health conscious babes don't need pesto to mean diet suicide, I mean all we wanted was a little comfort right?
So I've messed around and nailed it. This pesto ticks all those endless health boxes and should keep you babes looking and feeling good!
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tbs almond meal
2 tbs of nutritional yeast
1/2 cup or two handfuls of fresh basil
Pinch of Himalayan sea salt
Pinch of black pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a bullet blender and blend until smooth.
- The sauce can now be added to any cooked protein in a pan and heated, used as a sauce for ZOODLES or even left raw as a salad dressing. Soooooo many options!!
