There’s nothing better than learning how to make something healthy yourself at home. Not only is it already nutritious to start with, but now you can save yourself time and hassle of getting it at the supermarket and do it yourself. The best part is that most things really don’t take that long to make, especially once you make them a couple of times and become the cooking pro-star you know you are, and it’s well worth doing it yourself. I love the feeling of making something myself at home, seeing exactly what goes into it and knowing exactly what I’m putting in my body. (Not to mention the extra few bucks leftover for other things when I head to the market or grocery store next time).
Almond butter is delicious with so many different things, but one of my favourite ways to enjoy it is with a freshly sliced apple. Try whipping up a batch of almond butter yourself at home – you’re sure to want to once you see just how easy it really is.
Homemade Almond Butter
2 cups raw almonds
1. Put the almonds into a food processor and blend well. This can take some patience, and will definitely be pretty loud, but keep at it and you will end up with an almond paste with a thick consistency, perfect for dipping or spreading.
It’s literally that easy, and you can store this tasty almond butter refrigerated for 2-3 weeks, or if needed, freeze it and it is good for about 3 months. Don’t worry about it freezing solid during that time, as the natural oils from the almonds will prevent this.
