This sweet almond cream is delicious and I love to eat it just with some plain crackers. Get creative there are so many things you can do with this. It's also a good replacement for a nut butter in a sweet recipe.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Makes: Appeoximately 200g

1 cup of almond skin off
2 tablespoons of water
3 tablespoons of coconut oil
4 tablespoons of organic panela (evaporated cane juice)
1 tablespoon of lime juice
Pinch of salt

For this you need to soak the almonds. Overnight is best but you can soak them in boiling water for one minute. I've adapted a recipe I found online and it said to soak the nuts and remove the skins. As I only soaked them for one minute in the boiling water it was hard to get to skin off so I left it on. This is why I suggest buying nuts that are already skinless.
