Are you a nut and seed lover? Nut and seed butters are a wonderful way to get your proteins. Plus if you are careful about what is found in your food, you will love this easy, one step recipe that applies to all nuts and seeds.
Instead of running out to the store to buy one of those unhealthy nut butters or still yet, a really healthy one that is so very expensive, know you can actually transform all your favorite nuts and/or seeds into a yummy, healthy to hassle butter.
Today I chose to go with coconut. I bought a huge bag of Prana organic coconut shreds because I love it so much. Aside it being crazy yummy, here are some great benefits of coconut.
Coconut, that’s it!
You can use any quantity you wish, just know that it will reduce as it turns into butter.
1- Add small coconut pieces or shreds into a a food processor and mix for a few minutes. Wait a few moments and mix again.
2- Be patient, it take a while for the mixture to become creamy and butter like.
3- Pour into a jar and use on EVERYTHING!!!
One small side note: because it is coconut, it will harden a bit once the mixture cools. You may want to heat it a bit before spreading. This is also why it’s so great to mix in with other nuts or some organic cocoa when mixing in the food processor. If you mix cocoa and coconut, you will get a chocolate-coconut spread that melts when you add it to a hot, organic and healthy toast!
Other ideas include mixing almonds in your food processor to create almond butter. Or how about some almonds, cashews and cocoa! Maybe some hazel nuts, cocoa and coconut!!!
Whatever you choose to mix, when you add a bit of coconut, you know you are getting something healthy!
