Where to buy Almond Butter in Singapore
The Finishing Touch to an Amazing Açaí Bowl
by Kevin Seow YF, Certified Practitioner in Diet and Nutrition and Raw Food
One of our favourite finishing touch to a bowl of healthy and delicious Açaí bowl is a spoon of creamy almond butter (great for Keto Açaí Bowl too) and our friends and customers often ask us for recommendations on where to buy good quality all natural almond butter in Singapore, how to make almond butter at home and where to buy almond butter online etc so we thought to share with you some of our favourite local almond butter and nut butter brands here in Singapore and also included an easy homemade almond butter recipe too if you have the time and want to try make some yourself.
Yes, you can find almond butter in NTUC and Cold Storage etc but rather than buying imported brands far away from us geographically made in bulk commercially, why not buy from local brands who use high quality ingredients, make them in small batches so you get better, fresher almond butter and it’s great to support local brands and community too #supportlocal

Hunters’ Kitchenette® is one of the first local nut butter brand around and the first we bought and tried and that’s when we realised it’s a perfect drizzle to go with the Açaí!
Founder Herbert Salim created The Hunters’ Kitchenette® for his wife Natalia as an extension of their daily life. The couple enjoys making delicious, healthy nut butters together for their family of two small children.
The Salim family lives strongly by the adage that “if you can’t recognise an ingredient, your body can’t either.” They are passionate about making good food choices and stick by their beliefs. Rather than buying off-the-shelf spreads that are highly processed and loaded with sugar and vegetable oils, Herbert makes his own.
And so The Hunters’ Kitchenette® is born, with a mission to promote clean eating and primal living. The name is a play on the Hunter Gatherer lifestyle the family is on, which has become their way of thinking when making decisions about food. The brand’s mantra is for everyone to take full control of their health with the right information and apply that to daily life.
Family and friends love the nut butters, and encourage them to share the delectable spreads with the public. Very soon they are selling at farmers’ markets and officially launch The Hunters’ Kitchenette® in January 2014.
Hunters’ Kitchenette® has a good variety of nut butter apart from almonds like cashew, hazelnut, macadamia and pistachio.

How to Make Almond Butter at Home
If you have a bit of time and want to make your own Almond butter, here’s how you can do it:
You can get raw almonds at a good price (approx $18/kg) from Teck Sang or Phoon Huat. Teck Sang was first introduced to us by a friend and we personally find the nuts at Teck Sang really good and fresh. Apart from almonds, they have a good range of other nuts like cashew, macadamia, hazelnuts, pine nuts, brazil nuts (our favourite) and even pili nuts. Some of the nuts comes in roasted version as well as in other flavours.

Good quality salt
We like using pink Himalayan salt. It’s less salty than other varieties so you might need to add a bit more but it adds some good minerals to your almond butter too.
A good blender who can handle heavy blending and heat like Thermomix, Vitamix or Blendtec
Preheat oven to 180°c
Bake your almonds for 15 mins in 180°c
Let the nuts cool down slightly for about 15 mins
Put them into your blender and start blending till smooth
When it starts becoming more butter and liquid like, put in your 2-3 tsp of salt (depending on the salt you use, the amount varies) and blend for another 1 min to ensure the salt is evenly distributed into the almond butter
Store in a container and keep in room temperature and enjoy it on your Açaí bowl, as a spread or even on its own!
