Raw Vegan Recipes: Chai-Spiced Almond Butter

August 9, 2016
I feel like I can say with confident authority that moving is one of the worst things ever. Not only is it expensive and inconvenient, but the idea of uprooting oneself--both physically and mentally--is enough to make even the most unperturbed of people go a little crazy. Since I just completed my fifth move in three years, I fancy myself quite experienced with the process. If you're planning to move anytime soon, my best advice is to carve out a little time to do something grounding, whatever that means for you. For me, that means stepping away from the boxes and disarray, and making this easy almond butter. This makes a great transition recipe as we ease our way into autumn; spread on toast, blended into a smoothie, or as an oatmeal topping, this nut butter is versatile and decadent.

1. In a food processor, blend almonds until they have formed a creamy consistency, stopping periodically to scrape down the sides of the processor bowl as necessary. This should take anywhere from 10-15 minutes, so be patient and let the processor do the work! 2. Add sugar and spices and run the processor again for 1-2 minutes. 3. Store in a mason jar and keep refrigerated.
