A complex flavored (but very easy) Vitamix nut butter
This nut butter takes zero prep and just four ingredients. Blend it up and it’s done in 3 minutes flat.
For something so simple, it’s surprisingly complex. It tastes salty, sweet, floral and tart all in one fingerful.
This lemon lavender pistachio nut butter is too good (and advanced) to share with your kids.
Go make some and gift it to a foodie in your life… or keep it all to yourself!
This flavor combo is one of our favorites
I’ve always loved lemon and lavender, so when I was searching for a wedding cake flavor, this one was a no-brainer. Pistachio pound cake with lemon lavender frosting, yum!
It was a total hit, we heard it was the “best wedding cake ever” throughout the night. So we decided to create an equally delicious, but guilt-free version. Our Fancy Wedding Cake Smoothie. Although nothing beats frosting, starting the morning with one of these means you’re going to have a great day!
So this flavor profile served us well twice, why not try again? We’ve made a few nut butters (our Apple Cinnamon Walnut Butter, and our Monkey Butter (cashew & banana) are my favorites). But we wanted to see if this winning combo would work as a nut butter.
Said simply: it did.
It’s complex, it’s advanced, it absolutely mouth-watering. We spread ours on toast, used as a dip for apples, and loaded up some graham crackers. All delicious.
This lemon lavender pistachio butter is an awesome thing to put in a little jar. Throw a ribbon on it and give it as a Thank You gift or make a big batch and gift them for the holidays.
Just make sure you keep some for yourself. You’ll be craving it like we are 🙂
