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. Your almond butter looks absolutely smooth! Loving the texture… homemade is always the best…

  2. 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!

  3. 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.
