Almonds are chopped, pulsed and spun into a creamy delicious almond butter. Coconut, olive or other vegetable oils can be added to enhance to creaminess and speed the process along. You can also opt for an oil-free batch as the almonds will naturally release their oil as the almond butter ages. It does take a little patience to make homemade almond butter but I believe it pays off. It is much more cost efficient ($5-8/lb for almonds = many batches of almond butter vs. $8-12 for a jar of almond butter), I can mix up the ingredients and make a sweeter, saltier or oil free version and there is something very special about making a product such as almond butter out of just raw almonds
I saw a recipe on instagram from @papaya_sunshine for an Almond Butter Banana Smoothie Bowl! It looked and sounded amazing and she raved about how much her husband loved it. When I hear those words "husband loved it" or loves it I perk up and look at the ingredients to see if perhaps my husband would love it too! :) I was certain he'd love this smoothie and boy did he!!
We topped ours with extra goodies! Banana coins, cashews, raisins, almonds, a prune, cranberries and a light dusting of coconut flakes over the bananas. I licked the bowl clean before Gerald, it's safe to say it is very good.
This is a new favorite in our house! May you enjoy this smoothie and many more!!!
