Coconut Almond Butter








     Yes, it takes a little effort...yes, you have to pull out your big guns equipment...yes, you can just buy it pre made...yes, yes, yes, ...BUT...look at all the fun science "experimentish" experience you would be missing out on unless you try to make your own!?  PLUS, you look soooo cool in front of your friends at spin class when you casually mention you make all your own Coconut Nut Butters, followed by a hair flip... Nut Butters have been known to cause extreme "uppityness"...especially when your formula is only 65 calories, 1.5g net carbs and 1.7g protein per Tablespoon  ;)

Ingredients for 14 Tablespoons~
1.5 cups reduced fat Lets Do Organic Coconut Shreds
1/2 cup (3oz) Whole Natural Almonds
1/4 cup Swerve Granular Erythritol
1 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Powder or Extract
Dash Cinnamon

     In 10 cup Food Processor, grind Coconut Shreds to Powder and continue to process for 3 minutes.  Add remaining ingredients and continue to process, stopping to scrape sides of bowl every 2-3 minutes til desired consistency, may take at least 15 minutes.  Enjoy  :)

  1. How many grams of sugar do you think this recipe would have? I am sharing with diabetics, and, I already know they'll ask. Thanks for your help.

  2. You will be thrilled to know the answer is ZERO!!! I make sure to get the unsweetened coconut, and Almonds and Swerve have zero grams as well! Happy Dance πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸ’ƒπŸΌ
