SMOKED ALMOND BUTTER
Smoked almonds, raw almonds, almond milk, brown sugar. Easy, creamy, delicious!
Makes 4-1/2 cups
6 oz. can Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds
9 oz. can Nice! brand Smoked Flavor Almonds
9 oz. can Nice! brand Natural Raw Almonds
1-1/2 c. Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/4 c. brown sugar
Place all almonds into food processor. Process till crumbly, stirring a couple times, then till nuts begin to clump up like a paste.
Add almond milk about a half cup at a time and process till creamy.
Add brown sugar and process till dissolved and almond butter is smooth and creamy.
Transfer to covered jar and refrigerate to use as desired.
Notes: Steve’s first Smoked Almond Butter Sandwich was on a soft textured potato bread (Schwebell’s). I took a bite and was surprised that the texture was reminiscent of a ‘fluffer nutter’ sandwich of long ago with Marshmallow Fluff and peanut butter. Familiar, but so much better with a little more texture and a smokey flavor.
The almond milk fluffed up the almond butter to give the texture effect of marshmallow. Now that’s a special creation and great for those with peanut allergies.
I buy the almonds at Walgreen’s when on sale, both brands: Nice! and Blue Diamond.
* I also used this nut butter as a base for a salad dressing in Nefertiti Salad.
