This Vanilla Espresso Cashew Butter combines unique flavors to form a bold and sweet nut butter that’s perfect on top of your morning toast.
I used to be obsessed with peanut butter.
Ok. I still am. I eat it everyday. But that’s all I used to like. I had never explored beyond peanut butter, and looking back, I’m saddened that it took me so long to realize that scrumptiousness that is nut butter. There are so many forms of nut butter, you wouldn’t believe…
- Peanut butter
- Cashew butter
- Almond butter
- Walnut butter
- Brazil nut butter
Not to mention seed butters: tahini (sesame seed butter, used to make hummus!), sunbutter (sunflower seeds), pumpkin seed butter. Then there’s coconut butter. Which, I’m not sure what category that falls into, but believe it or not, I’m not a huge fan of coconut. *gasp* Yeah. Sorry.
But okay… I think it’s pretty obvious that you can make pretty much every nut into a nut butter. OH THE WONDERS!
When my friends at Wild Friends sent me some of their nut butters to try, I was in heaven. So much so, that all of it is almost gone. And I’m too embarrassed to tell you when they sent it to me.
So, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. I made my own. And I’m proud to say that I am a survivor of a nut butter shortage.
Just kidding, there’s like seven jars in my pantry lolz. But it’s fun to make your own. And cheaper.
And this particular combination here is, if you can imagine, sort of like a Cashew Milk Latte on top of your toast. The combination of espresso and vanilla has got to be something they serve in heaven. And if my obsession with adding coffee/espresso to my food creations is wrong, I don’t want to be right.
