I have made homemade nut butter before and have loved it each and every time. Homemade nut butter is great because it is much cheaper than store bought jars, you know exactly what is in it, and you can completely customize the flavors! This newest flavor creation has to be one of my favorites that I have made so far. It honestly tastes like dessert, almost like your taking a bite out of a thin mint!

What you need to make the almond butter!

You will also need a food processor or high speed blender to make this almond butter. I have never actually made nut butter in a high speed blender, but I have seen other people do it and i’m pretty sure it should work. However, I always use a food processor and recommend one for the best results!
