Chocolate almond butter in the blender? Yes!
Almond butter is really easy to make at home. It tastes great and I can choose to use the ingredients that I like – USDA Organic almonds, Fair Trade cocoa powder and local honey. And I can also make it really chocolatey.
You will need a high speed blender for this to get the butter creamy. It’s delicious on toast, in a sandwich or by the spoonful.
Chocolate Almond Butter
1 1/2 cups Raw Unsalted Almonds
2 T Cocoa Powder
3 T Honey
Pinch of Salt
Add all ingredients to a high speed blender.
Blend on high for about 7 minutes until creamy. Use the tamper to keep it blending and stop a few times to scrape the butter from the sides with a spatula.
If you’d like to make your almond butter thinner, do not add water. Instead, add a little oil until you get the desired consistency. A mild oil that will thin, but not change the flavor is best. The photos show thick and delicious almond butter without oil.
