While trying to find ways to put the good stuff into my vegan baby’s belly, I came up with this recipe for almond coco butter. This is the tastier, healthier, greater nut butter ever! Contains only two ingredients! Yes two! NO sugar, NO additives. Just the fresh natural ingredients you’ll pick. Only the best for our children, right? And guess what? It tastes divine. Everyone that ever tasted this agrees.
Do you search for healthier options for you and your family? Do you like the taste of coconuts and almonds? Do you like making everything from scratch? Then gather your ingredients, take the blender out and let’s get started.
What you’ll need…
-1 cup organic almonds (about 100 gr)
-1,5 tablespoon organic pure coconut oil
-A spatula (a spoon will work too)
Throw the almonds in the blender and process for a few minutes. Stop the process a few times to scrap the almonds that stuck on the blender’s sides so every piece gets processed. After about 8 minutes throw the coconut oil in. You don’t have to turn of your blender just make sure it’s not on high. Process until it looks buttery. Taste…and you can officialy die now! Just put it in a mason jar and put it in the fridge before you do.
Usually nut butters contain sugar and salt. As long as they’re added for flavour and they’re not necessary I prefer not to include them. I think it’s so tasty that doesn’t need any sweetener. But, if you are addicted to the store bought nut butters and you are not ready for this transition, you can add a little bit of brown sugar (try with a teaspoon and taste…adjust to your liking) and a pinch of salt.
This makes a little less than 250 gr and stays in the fridge for at least two weeks.
ps. I buy lots of my food and supplements from IHERB . It's an amazing site that sells a wide variety of products from organic food to supplements to natural baby toys and essentials. And in very good prices too. With every purchase you make from the links in this blog post, I earn a little but very important and helpful amount of money. I truly believe in this company and I wouldn't promote something that I don't believe in. Also, if you are a first time costumer, by buying from my links, you get $10 off your first purchase of $40 or more and $5 off orders totaling less than $40. How awesome is that?
