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 .
250 gms almonds
1 tsp sugar
Roast the almonds at 180 degrees for 5-6 minutes .
Add the almonds to a mixer grinder and pulse in short bursts till oil comes out .
Add a pinch of salt and sugar and pulse again .
One can adjust the salt and sugar as per choice.
