NUT BUTTERS & SPREADS

SMOKED ALMOND BUTTER

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.
