Chocolate-Cashew Butter

Chocolate-Cashew Butter

Patience required: it will take several minutes for the cashews to break down to a creamy consistency, but once that happens, use this Nutella-ish spread on fruit or toast, or add a scoop to a banana-based smoothie.


  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

Recipe Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Toast cashews on a rimmed baking sheet, tossing once, until golden brown, 7–10 minutes. Let cool.

  • Process cashews in a food processor, scraping down sides of bowl occasionally, until smooth (this may take up to 8 minutes). Add milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and salt. Pulse to combine.

  • Do Ahead: Cashew butter can be made 2 weeks ahead. Cover and chill.
