Salted Almond Butter

Life with a food processor is good. Very, very good because I can't stop making nut butters which happen to be on my list of can't-live-without foods. In all honesty, I think I'm obsessed with my food processor. To the point where I might need an intervention here soon. For real. Look:

Salted Almond Butter. It's so good that it doesn't even exist in my house anymore. It was gone in a matter of days. I drool just thinking about it.

So drippy:

Oh, don't you worry. I will certainly be making another batch soon. Now that I know the secret to making almond butter in a food processor: PATIENCE. For real, you need tons of patience. Almond butter does not come together quickly, but when it does, it truly does. (Trust me, I've wasted many a good almond.)

And then there was this:

Looks like sludge, I know, but it's a Salted Almond Butter Smoothie made with (you guessed it) spinach. And obviously, a huge dollop of salted almond butter. It used to look like this:

Source: My brain.

• 1 cup vanilla almond milk
• 1/2 banana
• Spoonful of salted almond butter
• 1 tbsp cocoa powder
• Dash of cinnamon
• Giant handful of spinach

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Note that regular milk (any milk, really) will work. Feel free to add a dash of vanilla extract if the milk you use is not already infused with the flavor.

Oh, and if you want the recipe for Salted Almond Butter, you can head on over to A Full Measure of Happiness. I followed Lauren's lead on this one. You should, too.

Have a great weekend!

Question: Are you a fan of spinach in smoothies? It honestly took me a few tries to jump on this food trend. But I'm glad I did!
