I am beyond excited to bring you this post today. Not only is the recipe a really good one, but it has a giveaway for one of my favorite things in the world. I have a friend to thank for the recipe idea. Last summer when we went to WI to visit family, we spent some time in IA as well, seeing friends. A friend was telling me about these special nut butters she found at a local shop. She was obsessed with it, and wanted to be able to make it at home. I said I would come up with a recipe and get back to her. Well 8 months later, here you go! Yes, I am a great friend, why do you ask?
I have tried store bought almond butter before and not been a fan. I mentioned this to my friend, but she said I had to try other brands, because there was definitely good and bad almond butter. Well instead of trying other brands, I decided to just make my own. It is so easy to make, and you could flavor it how you want to. Obviously I went with white chocolate, but you could just use almonds for a plain version, or you could add a little honey to your almonds for a slightly sweet version. I went through this batch quicker than I care to admit.
I never thought about making nut butters in a blender, but once I got my Blendtec I had to try it out. The Blendtec is crazy powerful, and can pretty much do anything. I have used it for smoothies, protein shakes, sauces, salsa, and nut butters. The thing can crush ice like no bodies business. I seriously can not say enough good things about this blender. I am so excited to give one lucky reader a Designer Series Blendtec Blender plus Twister Jar! There are so many blender recipes that that I can’t wait to try.
- 3 cups roasted almonds, , unsalted
- 1/3 cup white chocolate, , chopped
- Add almonds to blender. Process on medium high speed for about 45 seconds, until mostly smooth. Add the white chocolate, and process for another 30 seconds. (The heat from the blender will melt the chocolate)
- If necessary, process for a few more seconds.
- Remove from blender and store in an air tight container.
