Let’s just say I’m over-the-top about my buddy Justin and his fabulous nut butters…I recently had the pleasure to meet Justin (twice,hehe) last month and tasted all of his incredible nut butters… Not only is Justin an amazing guy and a REAL Person, but his nut butters are out-of-this world.  Seriously, have you ever tried Chocolate Hazelnut Butter? Honey Almond Butter? Maple Almond Butter? Honey Peanut Butter? I didn’t think so…

Sick and tired of your regular ol’ peanut butter and jelly sammie, well go ahead and take my word for it, you can jazz up your sandwich, wraps, crackers, veggies, fruits, ice cream, anything with Justin’s Nut Butters…and the best part? These tasty creations are sold in handy dandy to-go squeezable and portable packets for easy traveling and munching on-the-go.

So, I decided to whip up a tasty dessert last night and use some of my Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter…yummm….how about a little Chocolate Hazelnut Mousse to take the heat off this summer?   I hope you enjoy my newest indulgence…it’s guilt-free and exceptionally tasty…

Vegan Chocolate Mousse


  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 4 Tbsp. Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1/3 cup agave nectar
  • 1/3 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 4 fresh basil leaves
  • Toppings: Lime Zest and Ground Flax Seeds


  1. In a food processor or blender, combine all ingredients; process until it forms a creamy consistency.
  2. Scoop into serving bowls and garnish with ground flax seeds and lime zest.
  3. Enjoy!

I created this delicious mousse last night…enjoyed a cup (or two, hehe) and then stored the remainder in my freezer for a frozen treat anytime!

  1. I would love to try the hazelnut butter. I love hazelnuts, but have never tried them in nut butter form.

  2. I would have to go with the honey peanut, though the chocolate hazelnut is a close second. I’ve never tried this brand!

  3. I”m wondering what Palm fruit oil is and why its needed in almond butter or peanut butter.
    Wouldn’t you be better off with the nut butters that are purely nut? What are your thoughts on this as a nutrionist? Some of the oils added are so confusing….
    Thank you!
    PS. If anyone has a Wegmans close by-they just started carrying Justins…

    1. Rooney,

      Thank you so very much for your comment; great to hear from you. This Organic Palm Fruit Oil is an unrefined extra virgin oil that is both chemical and solvent-free. Organic Palm Fruit Oil is commonly used in healthy cooking and baking. I find no harm in using Organic Palm Fruit Oil as it’s extracted simply from the pulp of the fruit of the oil palm and is cholesterol free, trans fat free, odorless, tasteless as well as provides our bodies with some basic daily energy needs. Moreover, Organic Palm Fruit Oil increases “Good” HDL compared to other saturated oils (such as coconut oil) to promote a healthy cardiovascular system. Hope this helps; thank you again for your comment and have a wonderful day! Best, Amie

      1. Thank you – Its really nice to have a straight forward clear answer. Much appreciated.

        1. Anytime; always glad to help in anyway that I can. Have an enjoyable evening and thank you, again for reading and commenting on my blog! Best, Amie

    1. Haha; I agree…I often eat the packets right from the packets…they’re simply too good to resist!!!

  4. I’ve only tried Justin’s regular almond butter and the honey peanut butter, but his flavors sound amazing! I love how they come in small sizes too! I would absolutely love to try the chocolate hazelnut or the maple almond butter. That sounds amazing!

  5. Has to be the Chocolate Hazelnut! What could be better? I’d love to try it and see if it’s as good as that sweet singer sounds!

  6. I’d love to try the Chocolate Almond Butter 🙂 *Thanks* for the giveaway!

  7. I have tried Justin’s products and they are fantastic! My favorites are the chocolate hazelnut butter and the maple almond butter! I don’t get to enjoy them often because they are pretty pricey, so I would LOVE a chance to win some!!

  8. It was so fun meeting you at the Step Up event last night! Kate and I chatted the whole way home about what a small world it is, and crazy coincidence to have met you randomly! As promised, I’m entering your nut butter giveaway 🙂 I would like to try the chocolate peanut or honey peanut, since I’m allergic to both almonds and hazelnuts so those are out! Hopefully we can grab cocktails sometime soon!

    1. Sam,

      Such a pleasure to meet you last night, as well…I am thrilled to have met you and Kate and chat about our work and BU days! Thank you so very much for your comment and I look forward to seeing you both again soon at the shore and here in Manhattan…we’ll make a date to get together again at your convenience. Thank you; have a great day! Best, Amie

  10. I would have to go with the chocolate almond butter. Yum! I’ve been wanting to try Justin’s since it’s been all over the blogosphere lately.

  11. I would live to try the maple almond nut butter. It sounds like a terrific combination!
