Review: Artisana Nut Butter

Artisana Organic Nut Butters/Oils strive to produce the highest quality, most delicious and healthful spreads as possible. Artisana holds the highest standards for detail and quality, striving to promote and support the organic and local food movement, and the environment. Artisana also chooses to buy directly from organic farmers when possible.
Currently, all Artisana products are certified organic and kosher, many of them raw.

If I had to pick my favorite Artisana products:

Macadamia Nut Butter:  Tasted like a cross between cream cheese and icing meeting somewhere delightfully in the middle. Sweet enough to eat on a cracker, and delicious in smoothies. I spread it on a slice of sprouted grain toast topped with sunflower seeds and sliced fresh strawberries.

Almond Butter: Versatility is almond butters middle name. Creamy and delicious. I was craving a sweet treat at the time and decided to feature the almond butter as the middle to my chocolate nut butter cups! They tasted sinfully delicious. Almond butter adds a smooth nutty bite to just about everything, and is as versatile as peanut butter!

Cocoa Bliss:  I can’t believe this is raw --it is so delicious and rich. Tastes much better than any conventional chocolate product, yet comes with numerous health benefits.  Did you know that cacao has extremely high levels of antioxidants in its pure, raw form? Pair that with coconut, known for its beneficial fats, and the heavenly result is a delicious nutritious spread that takes the place of many processed, overly sweetened, junk foods.

When you buy Artisana products, always know you are getting the highest quality, most nutritionally dense, organic food possible. The butters and spreads are deliciously sinful, yet full of nutrition. All of Artisana's products are extremely versatile, and can easily be incorporated into meals!
