Homemade Almond-Cashew Vanilla Butter a.k.a. When You Can’t Choose, You Make The Best Of Both Worlds!

Homemade Almond-Cashew Vanilla Butter a.k.a. When You Can’t Choose, You Make The Best Of Both Worlds!

Hey babes!

If you’ve been following me for a while now, you know that making homemade nut butter is nothing new to me! Here are a few of my homemade nut butter recipes if you’re interested!

This one’s pretty much the same, but I mixed almonds & cashews & added in pure organic vanilla & a few pinches of Himalayan pink salt!

It’s thick, rich, creamy, slightly-sweet, decadent & so freaking delicious, it’ll be hard to go back to store-bought! The only headache (literally + figuratifvely) is the amount of time it takes in your food processor. It’s not that it’s hard to make… it’s that NOISE! You feel me? I know… Kay but it’s WORTH every minute! I swear!

All you gotta do is add the nuts to the food processor with the vanilla & sea salt, pulse on high for about 15 minutes, scraping the sides every now & then as necessary & BOOM: Homemade nut butter!

If you use roasted nuts, it might take a bit less time since the natural oils in the nuts will have already bene released. I personally prefer to use raw nuts, which lengthens the processing time slightly!

What’s wonderful about this nut butter? EVERYTHING, from the taste to the minimalistic ingredients to the fact that you’re getting the full benefits of the nuts because they’re not diluted with any other oils, additives, preservatives or ingredients & you get to make it in the comfort of your own home while your food processor does all the work!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup raw organic cashews
  • 1 cup raw organic almonds
  • 1 tsp. pure organic vanilla
  • A few pinches of sea salt

TO MAKE:

  • Add the nuts, vanilla & sea salt to the food processor & pulse for about 15 minutes, scraping down the sides as necessary. The nuts will start to clump together & eventually, form a buttery texture & ball.

  • Transfer the nut butter to a Tupperware or mason jar & store at room temperature or in the fridge. It will stay longer & fresher in the fridge!
  • ENJOY!
