Sweetheart Pink Strawberry Banana Almond Pulp Smoothie

So pretty, so healthy, so EASY!!  The almond pulp adds protein and really amps up the yum factor.  You could substitute any other fresh or frozen fruits you like but this version comes out a beautiful sweetheart pink.  It was almost a shame to drink it!  (I said almost…)

Cherry Chocolate Almond Pulp Granola

Crisp, satisfying and not too sweet, this granola is an excellent use for leftover almond (or other nut) pulp.  The addition of oats and coconut give it substance and balance the chocolate and cherry flavors nicely.  This granola smells amazing as it bakes and works especially well over yogurt, as well as over oatmeal or just eaten out of hand as a snack.
