Making Almond Butter – take 1
This video absolutely made my morning! It is a MUST see!
Talk about feeling inspired and a little bit happier after watching that. It is so kind how all of the students at his school support him.
It’s been a great weekend so far! We’ve been doing some painting, went out for dinner last night (where our waiter spilled my curry AND wine all over the table and me!), and I’ve been having a little fun in the kitchen.
I decided to finally make almond butter! I’ve been wanting to buy it in the shops but you guys know how expensive it can get for such a small jar!
I bought this bag of almonds at Asda for a mere £1.70.
Threw them in the food processor:
And let the magic happen (don’t forget to scrape down the sides).
I had the best green smoothie ever while the processor was running.
I think the key ingredient was some melon that I added. It gave it such a sweet and refreshing taste!!! Plus I used this Rice dream as well. Have you ever tried it?
Eventually, this was born.
Now… it’s not as smooth as I prefer, but I think with a little more processer action it would be. I was being impatient.
Check out Heather’s post if you want to see what it looks like smooth! :)
It’s tucked away in its new home.
For more than half the price you can’t go wrong!
Of course breakfast this morning had to include a little AB on whole wheat toast. With a side of fruit.
It may not be the smoothest, but it tastes amazing!
Take 2 will involve a much more creamy nut butter.
Well, it’s sunny out so i’m taking my run outside today!
Enjoy your Sunday.
