Take Smoothies To Another Level With A Nut Butter Alternative
Nut butters like peanut and almond butter can enhance any smoothie. However, if you can't use nut butter, reach for an unexpected substitute: coconut butter.
Creamy and thick, coconut butter is made from the blended meat of a coconut. It has a sweet, mild, slightly nutty coconut flavor and is packed with healthy fats.
Coconut butter adds a luscious consistency to smoothies that will keep you feeling fuller for longer, thanks to the satisfying fats it contains.
The main advantage of this swap is its versatility. Its subtle flavor means you are less likely to rule out other smoothie ingredients due to their incompatibility.
