A bite of heaven! Golden, delicious, nutrient-rich almonds are oven-roasted then blended with a splash of vanilla, a sprinkling of cacao, and some Vital Proteins Coconut Collagen Creamer to create this Coconut Mocha Almond Butter.
Using no refined flours and sugars, this recipe can come together in a matter of minutes.It also happens to be gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, keto- and paleo-friendly! It’s subtly sweet, deliciously creamy, decadent, and rich with a hint of coconut and a gentle hum (or loud rev, if you prefer) of espresso. It also happens to be quite the nutritional powerhouse!
This Coconut Mocha Almond Butter also happen to be high in magnesium and antioxidants. It’s packed with protein and healthy fats thanks to the MCTs found in the Collagen Creamer’s coconut milk powder. Our VP product helps to support stronger hair, skin, nails, and joints, so you’re reaping major health benefits while enjoying a decadent dessert.
Eat it simply by the spoonful, spread it on to a piece of gluten-free toast, enjoy it with some freshly sliced apples, or — for the ultimate indulgence — grab yourself a piece of your fave dark chocolate. Then add a generous spoonful of your collagen-infused almond butter to it, followed by a sprinkle of crispy coconut flakes. Prepare to lose yourself in the deliciousness that you just created.
Six ingredients and 10 minutes in the making. The only thing that’s left to decide is how will you eat yours?
