Chocolate Coconut Almond Spread

Chocolate Coconut Almond Spread | This is so good...Oh yes, I did this.  Probably shouldn’t have, because I can see it being a new addiction.  This is a once you start, you can’t stop kinda food.  You’ve been warned – now eat responsibly.

I love, love, love chocolate and coconut together.  For one of my all time favorite creations, check out my recipe for Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars.  I think it’s a match made in heaven.

For this little concoction, I threw in some almonds.  This reminds me of one of my favorite childhood Halloween treats – Almond Joy bars.  Unlike downing a few Almond Joys, this spread won’t leave you feeling guilty.  It’s actually pretty good for you when you break it down.  The spread contains just a few ingredients:  soaked and sprouted almonds, coconut chips, coconut oil, cacao powder, vanilla, and optional honey (local if possible).  If you are looking to keep your sugar intake down or just prefer the taste of 88% or higher dark chocolate, this makes a great treat without the honey!

I think this spread is perfect scooped straight out of the jar on a spoon, but it would also be delicious on a banana or with some strawberries!

Chocolate Coconut Almond Spread

Ingredients:

What to do:

Place all of the above ingredients in a high powered blender (like a Vitamix) and process until smooth.  I like to store the spread in a pint size Mason jar.  Keep uneaten spread in the fridge.  If you make this with coconut oil, please note that it will firm up in the fridge. You will need to let it warm up a little to make it spreadable.

Enjoy!!

  1. I make something similar and love eating it with Simple Truth animal cookies from Kroger……mmmmmmmm

  2. How long would this last in the fridge?

    • I’ve kept it for up to a week, but that’s only because it’s all gone at that point! I think it would be fine for a few weeks. Hope you like it!
