Keeping It Simple | Nut Butter

Alright y'all.

Happy snow day first of all! Can you believe that we are getting this much snow in March?! Jeez Louise. I'm definitely ready for Spring to be here, what about you? Anyways... let's get to the point of this post shall we?

Ever since coming home from Aruba and trying to detoxify my body from all of the unhealthy food I ate and alcohol I drank, my diet has solely consisted of simple and whole foods. Lots of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and whole grains. This change of "diet" so to speak sparked a really fun and exciting idea for my blog. I want to share my favorite SIMPLE, easy, and quick recipes, hence the title "Keeping It Simple".

Even better then the great idea I had, when I walked into work after coming home from vacation my coworker and friend Amber gifted me her fourteen cup Cuisinart Food Processor. How generous! So obviously a ton of super fun recipes instantly popped into head, and I thought I would share with everyone.

Since I had a snow day I had ton of time this morning to play around in the kitchen, one of my favorite things to do! Peanut Butter has easily always been one of my favorite foods. Basically one of my main food groups to be totally honest. A lot of my favorite Instagramers and bloggers have been talking a ton about mixed nut butters, so that's what I decided to try making today.


This is new to me, clearly. It took me like twenty minutes, plus Zach's help just to put the cover on. But lets get into how I made nut butter in less than ten minutes!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of cashews
  • 1/2 cup of almonds
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
Directions:

Pulse for around 4-5 minutes until mixture is smooth and creamy. Place nut butter into a tightly sealed container, and refrigerate until you're ready to eat. Enjoy!



Thank you again Amber for the amazing gift! I can't wait to share more simple recipes with everyone.

Love always,
Michaela
