Almond coconut butter


3 cups almond

1/4 desiccated coconut

1 tsp coconut oil


Roast the almonds in the oven at 220c for 10 mins as this adds flavor and eases digestibility of the nuts.


A high-speed blender or a food processor is needed for the next step.  Blend them until they become a smooth butter.  If this needs more liquid add the coconut oil.  Combine the coconut in once the almonds are processed and add to a sterilized jar which has a lid.  Keep stored in the fridge it should last for months if you can resist eating in up by then.
