If we had to pick our favorite nut it would be a toss up. We adore cashews but pistachios are pretty high up there too. Really our love affair for pistachios came from this chocolate cake. Our mouths are watering just thinking about that dessert and this marshmallow one too.
Sorry, wiping our drool as we carry on with the recipe for homemade pistachio butter with chocolate and homemade coconut butter. Do we need to say anymore? Did’t think so.
How to make the most amazing chocolate pistachio coconut butter.
To die for. Yes. It’s that good.
Little history behind this recipe. To be honest it kinda was a mistake. Okay mistake can be a harsh word. Let’s say not what we originally had planned. We actually wanted to make a pistachio truffle kinda like these pecan truffles. We were so excited. We got shelled pistachios. Came home and began to shell and skin each pistachio. Whoa. Who knew that would kill our fingers? Felt like we were cracking all day.
Since the first attempt of making those truffles did not work out well we had to think of another recipe idea to redeem us of this recipe not turning out.
Luckily, friends we discovered homemade nut butter. Add in chocolate. Coconut butter. You got yourself one stellar masterpiece! Party dance.
Now… don’t be jealous. You can make this up for yourself to devour in no time and have a party dance too!
Who knew that blending coconut butter with pistachios and CHOCOLATE could be so decadent.
This definitely is a nut jar that we would happily finish off in a day.
Seriously… ridiculously delicious right there.
A well balanced flavor of pistachio and chocolate. Match made in heaven.
Pistachio chocolate coconut butter? Sounds difficult. Nope. Nada.
All you really need is some pistachios and a food processor that you pray won’t explode when you ask it to puree those little green gems into nut meal like consistency. The main reason we used pistachio flour instead of whole pistachios is because like we mentioned above our truffle idea did not turn out. So butter was made!
So, if you are looking for a 100% healthy pistachio chocolate butter, make this! Seriously. It’s amazing.
The pistachios we used in this recipe were already shelled and peeled. Yes they were roasted. But. Whatever. It is still pretty damn good! You could use raw pistachios.
Oh man, we wish you could smell this butter right now. The aroma it just mouth watering on it’s own. And when you take a spoonful it is like a chocolate explosion in your mouth. Maybe one day someone will invent the ability to smell foods off computers. We can hope. Or maybe that wouldn’t be a good thing as we would want to make every recipe we came across.
And oh yeah there is some nutrition in this bad boy 😉
Did you know that? Pistachios also provide high quantities of essential nutrients: thiamin, Vitamin B6, potassium, and lutein (anti-oxidant for eye health). Great for fiber too.
