I’ve been on an almond kick lately, so what better way to use almonds than making almond butter? We all know the less ingredients you have, the healthier it usually is right?? Also, knowing how to pronounce the words assures you its clean, and not full of chemicals and preservatives that cause bloating, cravings, and health issues.
Im such a fan of saving money and making food on my own to not only get more bang for your buck, but making my own food for my family shows them how to live a healthy lifestyle and teaches clean eating young so they can one day lead by example!
My kids helped me make this for the first time and my 2 yr old LOVED IT!!
