It’s been a while since I’ve last made Amandalice…that’s what my dear ones call my homemade almond spread (almond in french is amande + Alice = Amandalice). My daughter came in the door after school today and ran into the kitchen all excited, yelling “I smell Amandalice!!!!” and started digging into the jar.

Amandalice is a delicious homemade spread suitable for breakfast or snacks. I love to spread it on toasted french baguettes but it’s basically good with any kind of bread or crackers.

Amandalice (homemade almond spread)

Course Breakfast
Cuisine American, Chinese, French
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 2 jars

Ingredients

  • 600 g almonds
  • 2 tbsp blond sugar
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 25 g honey
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Grill the almonds in the oven at 180°C (350°F) for 15 minutes. 

  2. Leave almonds to cool down a bit.

  3. Put almonds in a food processor and mix until it reaches a purée texture.  This procedure takes time and patience.  Stop once in a while to scrape down the almonds with a spatule as they tend to pile up on the side of the bowl.  You might need to do this up to 7 times, depending on each food processor.  

  4. DO NOT ADD ANY OTHER INGREDIENTS UNTIL YOU’VE REACHED THE PURÉE TEXTURE !

  5. Add both sugars, honey, salt, and vanilla extract and mix again.

  6. Put the spread into a covered jar and can be kept for at least a month in the refrigerator, but at my home, it never lasts that long.
