With Thanksgiving in the books, it’s straight onto the most magical time of the year….Christmas season! I am one of those people who doesn’t really feel like it’s right to start decorating or ‘getting in the spirit’ until after Thanksgiving. Every holiday deserves its time, ya know? Totally not a fan of seeing Christmas trees out the day after Halloween. :/
But now that Turkey Day has passed, I feel like I can officially start getting in the Christmas mindset! The decorations will go up, the tree will be lit, the cookies will be baked, and, my favorite part….the gift giving will begin! I absolutely LOVE giving my family and friends presents. It’s my absolute favorite part of the holiday season. In fact, I keep a special note in my phone all year round where I take down little reminders for myself of things they’ve mentioned throughout the year that they’ve wanted, thought was interesting, or have planned on getting for themselves. This way, when Christmastime rolls around, I have a ton of ideas on what to get my loved ones! Seeing their faces light up when they open something really special on Christmas Day is always such a joy to me.
For the past few years, I’ve been doing more homemade presents. I’ve found that people really appreciate when you give them something that you’ve put a lot of thought into and made with your own two hands. Plus, in today’s day and age, it seems like everyone has EVERYTHING they need. So why not make something really unique and special this holiday season?
That’s where today’s recipe comes in. It’s the perfect DIY holiday present!
As you know, I’ve ALWAYS been a huge nut butter love. However I’ve never really delved into making it myself. Sure I have a food processor and a blender, but neither have worked very well when I’ve attempted to grind up nuts into a silky, smooth homemade nut butter.
That’s where The NutraMilk comes in.
Have you heard of it? The NutraMilk is basically THE one of kind appliance that every health conscious kitchen needs! It’s super easy to use and makes it amazingly simple for ANYONE (we’re talking ANYONE) to make fresh, homemade nut-milks and nut butters right at home. No need for constant stopping and scraping of the sides of your processor…The NutraMilk takes care of all of that for you. It’s SO powerful and I really couldn’t believe my eyes when I watched it process my nut butter recipe the first time I used it. So cool.
So with The NutraMilk at my disposal, I thought it would be an awesome idea to make homemade nut butter for my friends and family this holiday season! I mean, I really didn’t have an excuse with such a cool appliance.
Inspired by the flavors of the holidays, I came up with the most decadent, dessert-like nut butter you’ll ever taste….Pecan Pie Butter.
Creamy, rich, and so smooth! You’ll never believe this recipe has only 3 ingredients, is oil-free, and has NO added sugar!
- 2 cups raw pecans
- 2 tsp organic ground cinnamon
- 2 tbsp Bob's Red Mill date sugar
- ½ tsp sea salt, optional
- Place all ingredients in the NutraMilk blender and blend until a smooth butter forms (about 4 minutes). Remove from the NutraMilk and store in the refrigerator.
We all know traditional Pecan Pie is one of the most calorie and sugar dense desserts of the holiday season, but now, with this recipe, you can have all that amazing taste you know and love made with simple, WHOLE FOOD ingredients thanks to the processing power of The NutraMilk!
Your friends and family will LOVE this vegan, gluten-free, naturally sweetened food gift for the holidays. In fact, they’ll probably be begging for the recipe….in which case you’ll have to tell them to run out and get a NutraMilk ASAP! 😉
