Sometimes we just get so set in our routine and ‘usual’ that we miss out on so much goodness.

Like this Macadamia & Coconut Butter.

Until you taste the smooth, smooth delicious goodness you really have no idea. It will put all your of your other nut butters to shame, an you may never be able to eat plain ol’ peanut butter again.

All you need is a high powder blender (KitchenAid is what we used) and you are half way there!

Perfect on its own with little bread, on fruit or hell, grab a spoon and good luck stopping at one..
