Boy oh boy am I excited to share this amazing product with you guys! Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter is simply outstanding in taste, quality and nutrition!
Price: A little pricey, $6.49 for a 10.0 oz jar, but well worth the splurge ( the quality is amazing). Personally I get it only once in a while because I have plenty other nut butters to eat, but if I didn’t I would get it more often.
Ingredients: I’m pretty impressed with the ingredients, all natural , no preservatives, gluten-free and vegan.. There is a tad bit of organic cane sugar and palm fruit oil, but it is way better than the high fructose corn syrup and trans fats you see in processed nut butters. The remaining ingredients are dry roasted almonds, organic cocoa butter, and sea salt, all pretty clean.
Nutrition Facts: The nutrition facts are pretty much similar to any type of nut butter, 180 calories and 14 grams of fat per 2 Tbsp. serving. The fat is about 2 grams lower per serving than peanut butter, 14 grams vs. 16 grams. I like that there is a hefty 3 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein per serving, more than peanut butter and a great way to sneak it in to your diet. There are 6 grams of sugar per serving, but not a bank breaker because its coming from all-natural ingredients.
Taste: Wow such an amazing sweet taste!This literally tastes like vanilla coated almonds crushed up into a nut butter! Not to sweet, the sea salt balances out the flavors nicely. The vanilla flavor tastes all natural, not a even hint of artificial vanilla flavor like in some prepackaged foods.
Consistency: The texture is PERFECT! Super creamy and delicious! No grainy or gritty texture like some almond butters can have!
This product is AMAZING! Use it in anywhere you would in peanut butter! Perfect in fruit smoothies, over top your oatmeal or yogurt, in a pb&j sammy, spread on a banana or apple, or simply eaten out of the jar!
Use it in recipes that call for nut butter as well! Try it with Our Nut Butter filled Chocolate Coconut Flour Munchkins!
