Love healthy blended recipes? Want the opportunity to win one of three $200 Walmart gift cards—plus the opportunity to win our $5,000 Walmart gift card grand prize? Take our #VersaChallenge! Just make this Agave Almond Butter. Then share a picture of your finished smoothie on Instagram with the hashtag #VersaChallenge. Make sure your account is public so we can see your entry and you’re entered to win! (See Official Contest Rules.)
Using the Oster® Versa® 1100 Performance Blender with the 4 cup accessory blending jar, add:
- 1.5 cups of unsalted natural whole almonds
- Agave nectar
- Kosher salt
Pulse on high 2 – 3 times, then continue to blend on high for 1.5 to 2 minutes, or until creamy.
We’ve enlisted our Fitness Fitterati® Anne, from fANNEtastic Food, and Courtney, from Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life to lead you in the challenge. They’ve got great tips on making all your smoothies super-healthy, and keep that healthy lifestyle going on the go.
Courtney: "Make sure to give your nuts enough time to really blend up in the jar. It may be tempting to want to dive right in once you start smelling it, but be sure to wait until they're fully processed and blended."
Anne: "Get creative with your homemade nut butters by mixing up the spices! For a savory/spicy nut butter, add in a few shakes each of cumin and ground cayenne pepper. Come October, try adding a little pumpkin pie spice instead." Need a little more help making your Challenge #2 Nut Butter? See Courtney walk you through the how-to for our delicious Agave Almond Butter.
Don’t forget to Instagram yours after you make it for an opportunity to win! (Each challenge, we’re giving away three $200 Walmart gift cards—plus one Grand Prize winner will be selected from the challenge finalists to win the $5,000 Walmart shopping spree.)
