pecan, walnut & almond butter

The ultimate nut butter!

Move over peanut and almond butter, we’ve got the ultimate nut butter experience to mix up your repertoire. Pecan, walnut and almond is a nutritious, high-protein blend that is full of rich, nutty flavour. It’s 100% nut, oil free, preservative free, sugar free and awesome!

With the Vibe Blender System, making fresh nut butter at home has never been easier. Making your own nut butter allows you to experiment with different combinations of nuts, get creative with fun mix-ins, control the texture and save money. Add a dash of ground cinnamon or coconut sugar and transform the basic blend into a gourmet nut-lovers festive spread.

We used a total of 4 cups of nuts but leaned heavier on almonds (the oiliest nut in the trio) to round out the flavour and improve the texture. This combination is tasty with raw nuts but roasting the nuts first enhances their flavour and guarantees a bolder taste and aroma. Roasting also releases the natural oils that help break down the nuts while blending. In under 3 minutes you’ll get a deliciously creamy and buttery nut spread that required no additional oil.

Apart from spreading, pecan, walnut & almond butter can be used in many ways. It’s an excellent thickener and plant-based protein boost in smoothies and smoothie bowls, a tasty addition to overnight oats and breakfast jars and lovely added to baked goods. Pecan, walnut & almond butter is a standout at Christmas. Bonus tip, mix in some maple syrup, cinnamon and a pinch of cloves for a delicious festive drizzle.
