Recipe: Almond Butter

Lately the AAAD team has been experimenting a lot with almonds! If you haven't tried almond butter yet because you are obsessed with peanut butter I highly recommend trying it even just once - I am sure you will be hooked! I tend to buy almonds in bulk and then make my own milks and butters, which are preservative and additive free plus I can add my own flavoring. Christine makes a delicious almond fudge and this almond butter recipe would sub in perfectly! This is one of the easiest recipes yet. All you need is a food processor, almonds and some cinnamon.

  Ingredients:
  2 cups almonds 
  1 tsp of cinnamon 

Directions:  
1. Add 2 cups of almonds and 1 tsp cinnamon to the food processor.  


2. Keep processing! It takes about 7-12 minutes depending on your food processor. (I tried making this with my Vitamix but the consistency wasn't as smooth) 



3. Voila! Delicious, homemade almond butter. Store in the fridge for 1-2 weeks.



So now that you have made an amazing, creamy, preservative and additive free almond butter what can you do with it??
  • Eat it right out of the food processor with a spoon
  • Use where you would use any other nut butter
  • Make almond butter fudge
  • Try almond butter and jam or honey on your toast 
  • Make a delicious date almond smoothie 
    • 1 frozen banana 
    • 2 tbsp almond butter
    • Cinnamon as desired (I use 1 tbsp) 
    • 2 handfuls of spinach or kale 
    • Almond milk (or dairy alternative of your choice)
    • 1 scoop protein powder 
    • 5 dates (or sweetener of choice)

I am sure you can substitute any other nut to make whatever nut butter you crave! Try cashew, macadamia, hazelnut or my personal favorite is a combination of cashew and almond. 

Let me know how you have experimented with nut butters! 

Best in health,
Kate
