Today I made my first batch of almond butter. So easy that it’s crazy I haven’t done it sooner.
Almonds (I used about half of this 3# bag)
4T coconut oil
2T honey powder
Combine ingredients in a food processor. Turn on. It takes about 5-6 minutes for almonds to become butter-like. Just when you think you’ve made it right, and it’s all crumbly and not butter-like, be patient and keep waiting. It works out. Refrigerate almond butter, there aren’t preservatives in it to keep it out.
Bring water to boil. Add 1c almonds. Boil on high for 5 minutes, almonds will soften. In blender, add 4c water. Strain almonds. Add almonds to blender. On highest setting blend for 2 minutes. In glass container, using a nut bag (these are super cheap on Amazon), line the insured of the container. Pour blender contents into container. Squeeze the remaining nuts for milk. Ta Da. Homemade Almond Milk. No preservatives. No other weird junk.
