Almonds, Brazil and Cashew Nut Butter. Three fantastic healthy nuts, these combine to make a delicious creamy nut butter. Almond butter by itself is delicious, but I found it was a lengthy process to make in a basic food processor, much easier in a vita-mix. By adding in Brazil Nuts and Cashew Nuts the added natural oils from these nuts makes it not only easier to make but creamier as well. Brazil Nuts are full of selenium which we are often lacking in our diet, so a great reason to add. One of the processes selenium is involved in, is the production of prostaglandins in our body which regulates inflammation.
3/4 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw cashew nuts
1/3 cup raw brazil nuts
Blitz together in your food processor until the healthy oils from the nuts are released, creating a creamy nut butter, blitz until you get a lovely consistency and then add in 1/4 tsp himalayan pink sea salt (more or less to taste). Blitz again.
I have used a Kenwood food processor for this and it has no problem making the nut butter within 5-7 minutes. Experiment with adjust the quantities according to what you have and your taste-buds.
