Almond Butter

 Almond Butter is a great substitute to dairy butter as this butter is a good source of mono saturated fats our bodies need .

We all know that Almonds are power packed , and a handful of these nuts in our daily diet are a must . What could be better than incorporating these nuts in the form of butter ?

Almond butter is full of healthy flavonoids and vitamin E , it lowers the cholesterol levels . It is super easy to make it at home and one really does not run to gourmet shops to buy it , where it’s pretty expensive . Obviously the Home made versions are always the best.

All you need is to be a little patient . The almonds should be roasted and then you should pulse them in short bursts till they release their natural fat . You will end up with a super creamy paste .

You can’t overdose on almond butter, so the only restriction will be your own calorie intake. It is a calorie dense food and you should fit your desired amount of almond butter into your calorie intake . Enjoy it straight off the spoon! Or spread it in your toast , jazz it up with some berries , I am sure you will love it .

  1. What could be better than all natural home made almond butter. Yours came out so smooth and luxurious. I often put a tablespoon when my make smoothies for breakfast for a little extra protein punch, but I am sure would be so much better with this homemade version!

  2. My older one is after me to make nut butters at home, but somehow I am unable to get there 🙂 This post is pushing me to make it. Lovely texture too. I thought a little oil is needed to get the mixer going.
