What Is Matcha?

Matcha is a beautiful, vibrant green tea powder that is made from finely ground green tea leaves. The powder is traditionally mixed with water and then added to your favorite milk for a matcha latte. It contains antioxidants that can help you stay energized throughout the day.

Ingredients and Substitutions

Roasted almonds for easier blending. You can also use raw almonds, but I have found that using roasted produces more natural oil making the end result creamy and smooth.

Ceremonial grade matcha powder to make this matcha almond butter.

Maple syrup to add a bit of sweetness, you can omit but I think it adds so much flavor. You can also use agave.

Pinch of salt to help balance out the flavors!

How to make

For this recipe I used my NutraMilk which is a machine that makes nut milks and nut butters, I am obsessed with it. If you don’t have one, you can also use a high-speed blender or a food processor.

ONE: combine roasted almonds and matcha powder, blend for 12-14 minutes.

TWO: add in maple syrup and pink salt. Blend for 3-4 minutes or until matcha almond butter is smooth and creamy.

THREE: Store in an airtight container and enjoy within one month.

Tips and Tricks

Use roasted almonds for best results.

You can also use raw almonds, but you may need to add in some type of oil to help it break down and be smooth and creamy. I’d recommend adding in 1 tbsp of evoo, coconut oil or avocado oil.

A high-speed blender or food processor works best if you don’t have a NutraMilk. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides a few times in the process.

Keep blending your almonds until they are smooth and creamy, the whole process took me 15 minutes with my NutraMilk, it may take 20-25 minutes with a food processor or blender.

Taste and Texture

Matcha is known to have a slight earthy taste, but this almond butter is far from earthy. With the addition of maple syrup this matcha almond butter is smooth, creamy and sweet!

How To Serve and Store

Serve this matcha almond butter on top of toast, pancakes, french toast and so much more. You can use it in replace of any recipe that calls for nut butter.

Store this nut butter in an airtight container in a cool and dark place such as your pantry. I’d recommend using a Weck Jar or a Mason Jar for storage.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does this matcha almond butter last?

Up to one month!

Can I use another machine instead of the NutraMilk?

Yes absolutely, I’d recommend a food processor or high-speed blender. See notes above.

What happens if my almond butter never turns creamy?

Add in a tablespoon of oil such as coconut, avocado or evoo.

Can I use another type of nut instead of almond?

Yes absolutely! Any nut would work the same, but I’d recommend cashew for best results.
