Artisana Review!

13 Sep

A little over a month ago I received a very nice package full of heaven from the great people at Artisana! The package included one small jar of coconut butter, one small jar of walnut butter and eight squeeze packs including: cacao bliss, cashew butter, almond butter, coconut oil, walnut butter, coconut butter, pecan butter, and macadamia butter.  All of these butters have either one or two ingredients making them a completely healthy, clean eat.  These nut and coconut butters are not only delicious, they are loaded with multiple health benefits.  Scientific studies show that incorporating nuts into your diet reduces your risk of heart disease and lowering LDL cholesterol (the bad kind).  Coconut has been shown to help reduce LDL cholesterol, help balance female hormes, and assist in weight loss.  The products that Artisana creates are true super foods!  They are also gluten and peanut free! Each and every product that Artisana makes is unique, fresh, pure, healthy and high quality.

First thing I dove into was the walnut butter and it was delicious.  Made only from walnuts and cashews! This tasted great spread on apple slices.

Next up was the cashew butter which had a very rich cashew taste.  I was never a big cashew fan but this nut butter did not disappoint! I squeezed it over some high protein french toast with some berry jam and the combo was perfect!

Ok so I think I may have found my latest obsession and I fell completely in love after trying coconut butter for the first time.  This was hands down my favorite out of all of the samples that Artisana provided me with.  It was rich and creamy and tasted absolutely amazing! It was so good I could eat it out of a jar with  a spoon…but it did taste great on protein pancakes, fruit, toast, anything!

Pecan butter is made from pecans and cashews and is perfect paired with pumpkin and my pumpkin pancakes!  Talk about the best combination for fall!  The flavor was very true to the name and completely natural tasting.

Artisana coconut oil is non-hydrogenated, cholesterol-free and made of medium-chain fatty acids which are broken efficiently by the body, providing an immediate source of energy.  I used the coconut oil to cook veggies in as well as bananas for breakfast..perfect combo!

Almond butter has always been a favorite of mine so this one obviously did not disappoint!

Cacao bliss was another favorite of mine..probably because it was coconut butter that involved chocolate.  Talk about heaven.  It is made from  organic raw coconut butter, organic extra virgin coconut oil, organic agave syrup, organic cacao, and organic cacao butter.

Macadamia nuts have never been my favorite but this butter was so good! I used my sample of it ontop of some flax seed waffles and the taste was creamy yet crunchy with a slight sweetness.

  I want to thank Artisana for providing me these great samples! They were all amazing! If you love nut butters as much as I do check out their website www.artisanafoods.com and get some for yourself you won’t be disappointed!
