Almond Coconut Butter
Almonds are packed with vitamin E, which helps with red-blood-cell formation and widens blood vessels to improve heart health. Coconut oil will cause this butter to harden in the fridge. When ready to use, microwave two tablespoons on high for 20 seconds.

Ingredients:
1 cup roasted, unsalted almonds
1 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:
Blend almonds in a food processor for 3 to 5 minutes, or until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Remove almond butter into a separate container. (Don’t wash out the processor.)

Add coconut to the processor. Blend for 5 minutes. Add oil and process 1 minute longer until it is nearly liquid.

Add almond butter back into the processor along with honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. Blend briefly until combined.

Makes 1 cup (8 servings, 2 tablespoons each).
