Almond Coconut Butter

Print

Store-bought almond butter just isn’t as good as homemade almond butter. I also noticed the price of almond butter is increasing in supermarkets. The almond butter has a sweet and salty taste to it and is perfect to pair with an organic green apple or add a tablespoon to your morning smoothie. Sometimes I’ll just eat a spoonful when I’m on the go.

Further Food Commentary:

Almonds are excellent sources of fiber, protein, and healthy unsaturated fats. Almond butter can be used as an alternative to regular peanut butter, along with cashew butter or sunflower seed butter. This recipe for almond butter is high in potassium and iron. Potassium maintains your body's fluid balance by working as an electrolyte, and signals our muscles when they need to contract. Iron is a key component of red blood cells, which carry oxygen to all of the cells in the body. When you suffer from anemia, you are deficient in iron. Coconut butter is rich in saturated fat and is not appropriate for individuals with heart disease or high cholesterol. In place of coconut butter, you can use olive, canola, or avocado oil. I also do not want to endorse anything for a "candida cleanse," as there is no scientific evidence to back up its claims.
