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.
