Homemade Almond Butter

I've had it in my head for weeks that I want some TRULY raw, sprouted, homemade almond butter. We happened to buy several pounds of truly raw almonds a while back and it just so happens that our Green Star Juicer was back in the house today, so I set to making some almond butter.

  • Almonds washed
  • Almonds soaked
  • Almonds into juicer with the blank screen - this didn't work so well because I didn't feel like getting a total work out to press them through the juicer. SO...
  • Almond in the food processor to break them up
  • Almonds back to the juicer (this made more mess, but did make for less work)
  • Almonds back to the food processor where I added Celtic Sea Salt and raw honey
  • Almonds to the blender to try to cream them up
The end result was just a BIG MESS and almond butter that doesn't taste all that great. The texture is kind of weird. The next time I want almond butter I'm just going to Whole Foods.

So instead of trying to dig the sticky remains of this butter out of the blender I decided to just leave it in and make some almond milk. Now that turned out good!
