Trader Joe’s Raw Creamy Almond Butter
After I finished Trader Joe’s Mixed Nut Butter, I picked up another nut butter at Trader Joe’s. This time, the battle was between almond butter and peanut butter. The last almond butter I had was Justin’s Classic Almond Butter. It was very good! I liked it a lot! Though, I can’t remember the last time I had peanut butter. It must’ve been ages ago. I do miss peanut butter, but almond butter was staring directly at me in the eyes. I couldn’t resist! So, I chose almond butter in the end. I guess peanut butter goes on my to buy list the next time I’m at Trader Joe’s. ?
The almond butter I chose is called Trader Joe’s Raw Creamy Almond Butter. Yes, everyone. I chose creamy instead of crunchy even though I prefer crunchy. I needed a change. The Trader Joe’s Raw Creamy Almond Butter is unsalted. If you prefer salted, it is available. To me, salted or not, it doesn’t matter. I always add my own salt anyways. Piiiink Himilayan Sea Salt! ❤ Now, let’s take a look at the nutrition facts and ingredients. I hope this is helpful if you’re considering purchasing Trader Joe’s Raw Creamy Almond Butter!

This is what the raw creamy almond butter looks like. It appears creamy and smooth like it’s supposed to. I enjoyed playing with it in this demo. ?
Here are my thoughts on Trader Joe’s Raw Creamy Almond Butter, since I’ve been incorporating it into my daily health routine. First, as with all raw nut butters, there’s a layer of oil on top. Before using, mix the raw almond butter with a spoon. ? The consistency of this nut butter is very runny but creamy at the same time. Be very careful not to spill it. The texture is rich, creamy, and smooth. In the photo shown, you can see specs of finely crushed almonds. Nevertheless, the raw creamy almond butter is still creamy in texture. There’s no crunchiness to it at all. It is what it is. It’s a creamy almond butter, and that’s what you get!
I’m really enjoying this raw creamy almond butter. I find the creaminess absolutely delicate on the palate. I enjoy eating it by the spoonful as a snack. I love adding it to my protein shakes. With the creamy nut butter, it blends in much better compared to crunchy nut butters. I like that a lot. The creamy gets bonus points for that. It makes the texture of my shake smoother and more aesthetically pleasing. Ooooo! ? Maybe it’s time to switch over to creamy??!! I might! Just imagine using it in homemade protein bars and other baked goods — muffins, pancakes, waffles, bread! So creamy, smooth, and delightful! I’m truly enjoying the smooth texture of it, as you can tell. I’m loving it so far! ❤
