Nourish: Pumpkin Almond Butter



Pumpkin Almond Butter

You had us at pumpkin.

What happens when you cross two of our favorite things? Pumpkin Almond Butter happens. This fall take on a dancers favorite nut butter is is not to be missed. Let us know how you like it.

Ingredients:
2 cups unsalted, roasted almonds
2/3 cup canned pumpkin
1 Tablespoon chia seeds (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
10 drops liquid stevia

Instructions:

Place almonds in a large food processor and process until they turn into almond butter, turning off the processor and scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. This will take between 12-15 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth, another 5 minutes or so. If you want the butter to be even smoother, you can add a little oil. I didn't think this was necessary.

Place pumpkin almond butter into a storage container and store in the fridge for up to one week.
