Bad things happen sometimes right?

♥ ♥ ♥

I truly feel it’s how you look at those bad things that define you. If something bad happens do you play the “whoa is me card”  “everyone is out to get me” “nothing goes my way”

Or do you say “well that stinks, but how can I make the best of this?”

I use to be number 1, but as of lately, I have learned how to find the positive in almost any situation.

Wow, seems like I’m going into a pretty deep thought right?

Really, the lemons that were recently handed to me, wasn’t that bad of a lemon.

But I’m a bit dramatic, so I like leading you guys on 😉

I was given the awesome opportunity to try Nikki’s Coconut Butter’s.

I had heard amazing things, and let’s be real, I am a bit coconut butter obsessed.

I seriously am not kidding you when I would pray and hope each day that Matt brought me home a special package.

Day after day I waited, and one glorious day it happened.

However, it didn’t happen as I had planned.

When he walked in the door instead of “babe you got a package today” I got a “babe, I’m sorry but you got a package today…and it was broken.”

-insert heart breaking-

He handed me a plastic bag of two cracked, oil soaked jars.

I thought I might be able to salvage my beloved coconut butters, but they were dry as cookie crumbles.

Now, Nikki has graciously offered to send me replacements, but I couldn’t bear the thought of wasting the coconut butter, even though it was dry as a bone.

So these were my lemons. Dried coconut butter.

What’s a girl to do?

Make home made banana coconut butter of course!

Ingredients are pretty dang simple too.

1 ripe banana (I started with just a half, but ended up using the whole thing) and 2 tablespoons of  chocolate hazelnut coconut butter crumbles.

Blend Blend Blend.

You end up with a creamy banana chocolate coconut butter amazing-ness.

See. Life gave me some lemons, but I made some pretty tasty lemonade with it!
