Cherry Almond Butter – {Recipe}

by Destini on March 6, 2012

If you haven’t noticed, I obsess over a lot of types of food.  In fact you would think I have an obsessive personality. Which I may or may not have.  Now I know all us bloggers have squeezed out every bit of almond butter recipes known to man. But couldn’t we all use one more? I know almond butter is a MUST have in my cupboard. It goes as quickly as it comes. I had some dried cherries in the cupboard and thought “well I really love cherries and almond butter in my smoothies, so why not save a step and mix them together?” Well I did just that and now I am left in a cherry almond butter lalaland


  • 1.5 cups almonds
  • 1/4 cup dried cherries
  • 1t vanilla extract
  • 1t cinnamon
  • 1/4t salt
  • 2t pure maple syrup (optional)

Directions: Preheat oven to 325c and roast almonds in pan for 15min. Stand and let them cool.

Once cooled put into food processor for about 5-10 min. You will have to stop a few times in between and scrape the edges down. Add cherries and blend. Now add all remaining ingredients till smooth and blended. Fill jars and keep in refrigerator.

I don’t see this stuff lasting very long if your household is anything like mine! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do 🙂

Today was Pure Cardio of Insanity. I still have a pretty bad cold and today felt quite harder than the last time I did it. But I pushed through and did the best I could anyways.

Hope everyone has had a great Tuesday!! Only three more days left till the weekend!!

Tia informed me she isn’t in the blog enough! So here she is! This is the “oh mom I didn’t pull out all those shipping popcorns from your parcel and spread them all over the dinning room floor…I’m clearly way too cute”

Question: Have you made almond butter before? What is your favorite kind? If not, what is your favorite kind to purchase? I really enjoy Justin’s Maple Almond Butter. Hmmm maybe that will be the next almond butter I make up…can never have too much 🙂

It’s really easy. The only downfall is the clean up. I find scrubbing the food processor a pain!!
