Almond Butter Recipe

Almond Butter Recipe by www.rubyyee.com

Where can we even get almond butter from? I’d recently made myself a batch of peanut butter and offered some to the family. My sister got excited, handed a kilo of raw almonds and insisted I make her some almond butter! And here we are today! Whenever I make these nut butters I always think it’s not going to turn out. It turns to flour first, then the oils start coming out but only a little so the whole thing balls up, staying like that for a while and just when you think you’ve stuffed it up (again) it turns into glorious butter!!

The more foods I can make myself, the more I can be sure what’s in there and hopefully better for my psoriasis! Anything that can help my psoriasis is something I’m all for!

After a couple of minutes the almonds become powdery. You’re on the right track!

When the oils start to release the whole thing turns into a ball! It looks totally awesome.

    Oh my goodness, I didn’t know you’ve been playing around in the kitchen so much–it seems like we’ve been making similar things lately! I’m not sure if you drink almond milk at all, but so far, I’ve made my almond butter from the leftover pulp from making almond milk, and I find it super awesome–just thought I’d share with you! 😀

      Yes! I’ve been experimenting with food! 😀
      I was wondering about butter from left over almond milk. Does your butter not get dry? I roasted the almonds then processed and it felt oddly dry on the tongue!
      I’ve wanted to make almond milk, but looks very messy hehe
