  1. Add ingredients to Twister jar in order listed, and place Twister lid on jar.
  2. Hold Twister lid with one hand, and with other hand set on a Medium to Medium-High speed. Run for 40 seconds, turning Twister lid counterclockwise during blending.


For a raw version of the recipe, use raw almonds instead of roasted almonds and use coconut oil instead of shredded coconut. Follow recipe directions above, but blend for a total of 50–60 seconds.

    Yes, you can but it’ll be work. You’ll want to double the recipe and stop to scrape the sides down every time you hear the blending stop and the blade rotate by itself. Just know it’ll take a while to do it and the almonds will get hot (that’s normal).

    My family and I don’t like coconut. Is there any alternative or can I just omit it completely?

  • Mary Schleicher

    For those who don’t want sugar, try a soaked, chopped date, adds sweetness without the harmful effects some people have with sugar. The twister jar is a great investment, I recommend it highly. One of the reasons I switched to the Blendtec from the other competitors.

    Hi Mark, you can omit the coconut.

    I just made this in the mini twister jar as I have made 1 cup of almond butter in the mini jar. The cocoa flew up a bit. The machine appeared very noisy and seemed to be heating up. Should I have decreased the quantity. End result. It tasted delicious. I left out the coconut totally so jar wasn’t that full. Does the regular twister have an air tight lid? The nut butter was very hot also. any suggestions as how can make this in the mini twister and should it have been so hot.
