Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
Servings: 2 glasses
- 400 grams nuts seeds or almonds without salt
- 3-5 tbsp oil depending on desired consistency
- 1-2 pinches salt
- 2-6 tbsp sweetener as desired, e.g. honey or cane sugar
- spices e.g. cinnamon, cocoa, chili
First roast the nuts, seeds or almonds if you have not already bought a roasted version. Place the nuts on a baking tray lined with baking paper and place it in the oven at 350°F top and bottom heat for about 8 minutes. The nuts then begin to smell really good. Take care that they don't get too dark!
Pour the nuts into a Food Processor or powerful mixer. Chop, mix and puree in several stages; in between, use a spoon or dough scraper to scrape together all the nuts so that nothing gets stuck on the sides.
The nuts are first chopped, then ground, then paste and then pureed. To refine, add a few tablespoons of neutral oil, sweeteners, and spices at the end, depending on the intended use and taste. Fill into clean glasses.
