Cashew Macadamia Nut Butter


2012/10/07 by nikkiledford

Seriously, what is it with Trader Joe’s discontinuing all these great products over the years? Anyone remember this…

This stuff was delicious. Not to mention, it was a nice alternative to the standard almond butter AND it was stupid cheap compared to most nut butters you find in any health food store (14.99 for a 8 oz. JAR?!?!?).Β Recently I was reminded of the glorious taste of cashew butter and decided that I needed a batch in my fridge. I also had some macadamias on hand so I whipped up a little medley of the two. Super amazing. Try it.

Cashew Macadamia Nut Butter

1 16 oz. bag of raw cashews
5-6 oz. of macadamia nuts, roasted and salted
pinch of salt
pinch of cinnamon

  1. Lightly toast the cashews in a skillet over medium heat or in the oven. (Watch closely to make sure they don’t burn).
  2. In a food processor, add toasted cashews, mac nuts, salt and cinnamon.
  3. Let that baby whirl for a good long while. This is very similar to almond butter.
  4. After a while you may need to scrape down the sides, you only should do this about once or twice.
  5. Let it process until the pulverized nuts form into a ball and then flatten out into the butter texture. IT WILL TAKE A WHILE. BE PATIENT.

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
