3/4 cup raw almonds

1 1/2 cups medjool dates

1/4 cup cocoa powder

  1. In a high-speed blender or food processor, add your nuts and blend until a crumbly texture remains. Do not over-blend or now you have nut-butter.

  2. Add your Medjool dates and blend until thick. Add your cocoa powder. Continue blending regularly scraping down the sides to ensure it is fully mixed.
