You guys, I love nut butters. Like, LOVE! I spread them on apples, celery, toast, waffles. Ya know, basically anything I can. It is one of my favorite snacks. So I figured I should probably show you how very easy it is to make!
Doesn’t that look amazing?
So even though I am usually all for buying stuff and keeping things easy, I am obsessed with making my own nut butters. It is super easy. Like takes 3 minutes. And, I get to control how sweet they are, or how nutty. I get to choose high quality nuts. I get to add special extras like additional protein. I get to use honey. I basically get to feel like I am far healthier than I am. And I get to make as much or as little as I want. And fresh is best. Always.
This particular recipe is extra special because I add Vital Proteins Collagen Whey Cocoa and Coconut Water. It is amazing for increased athletic performance, hydration, improved amino acid absorption, better recovery, joint flexibility, better blood flow to muscles, and so much more. Basically, if you are an active individual and want a great tasting and awesome protein to add to your nut butter, this is it! It has an advanced protein utilization formula that combines collagen with whey protein, and other great stuff, to achieve a premium protein blend that is great for athletic performance.
This particular Collagen Whey protein is perfect for this nut butter because the cocoa and coconut make for the perfect combination to help flavor and improve this nut butter. It is mmm mmm good!
And did I mention how easy it is to make this chocolate almond butter? Like seriously, put everything in a blender, or food processor. You can check out the video for it on Facebook, but what you need to know is you blend/process until you achieve the desired consistency. If you have a high powered blender that is best. It will be a little gritty, but not too bad, and you can blend longer if desired. Just a heads up, it will get warm while blending, so you may want to chill it. But I like it straight out of the blender.
