Java Jive

I love coffee, I love tea

I love the java jive and it loves me!

And though you’ve probably already guessed it, you know what else we love?

Almond butter!

Now, when it comes to peanut butter, give it to us straight.  Don’t mess it up by adding anything else to it.  No sugar, no salt, no nothin’.  But Almond butter?  That’s a different story!  We love experimenting with almond butter!  It’s such a mild-tasting nut butter that it really lends itself to many different flavours.

So why not Caffe Latte almond butter?

Mhmm.  You heard that correctly.  Think of your favourite latte, in a smooth, creamy butter.  Sold yet?  A mixture of almond butter, coconut butter, and coffee.  Yummm.

And if you’re not a coconut fan, have no fear, because you actually don’t taste coconut at all!

So whip out that food processor and get jivin’, because one taste of this stuff, and you’ll never buy store-bought almond butter again!

You’ll be scraping the jar clean.
