Almond Butter Recipe - Whole Food Plant Based

Course: Fundamental Recipe, Dairy Alternative
Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 1 cup

INGREDIENTS

2 cups Kashmiri Almonds

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Blend almonds in a high speed blender. If required, split into two or three batches, depending on the size of your blender.
  2. After a minute or so, almonds will get blended into almond powder, and then get stuck to the sides of the blender, causing the blade to spin freely. At this point, stop the blender and scrape down the sides of the jar, and blend again. Repeat this until smooth, pourable almond butter is formed.
  3. If you are using a regular mixie, ensure to not let your mixie get overheated. Take breaks for a minute or two when needed.

Nutrition Science Highlights for WFPB Almond Butter Recipe

  1. Why not dairy? Dairy products have been found to be associated with increased risk of chronic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, obesity, asthma, PCOS, and heart disease. We can still enjoy our milk, cream, and butter though - as long as they are made from whole plant foods!
  2. Why nuts instead of oil? Whole foods are healthier than processed foods. When nuts are pressed and oil is extracted, fiber and phytonutrients are lost, along with many other nutrients. Therefore, whole nuts are much healthier than oils, whether cold-pressed or refined.
