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
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.
