chai spice cashew and almond butter

Nothing says warm & cosy like chai spices.

Let us tempt you with our latest nut butter recipe that truly is out of this world. Have you ever had Chai tea? Then you know how delicious these spices are when blended together: cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg and allspice. So warming and yum.

This chai spiced nut butter is a creamy blend of lightly toasted almonds and cashews, laced with spices and a little bit of coconut sugar to create an authentic chai-like flavour. Its rich, smooth as silk, oil-free and truly irresistible. Don’t be surprised if you want to grab a spoon and dig right in while it’s still warm. The best part - you can make it at home in the Vibe Blender System in just minutes.

We briefly roasted the nuts before blending. Roasting imparts a sweet, nutty aroma, increases the depth of flavour and releases the oils which will help the nuts break down more easily into a creamy spread, without any added oil. For an SCD friendly version, either omit the coconut sugar altogether or replace with honey. Note, honey will cause the oils in the nut butter to seize up so you will need to add a little coconut oil to achieve a spreadable, buttery consistency.
