The health benefits of nuts and the natural energy they provide means that they complement any lifestyle you lead. Little gems of mood boosting fuel (without the crash).
Nut butter has become increasingly popular in recent years, however the issue is that the majority on the market are plain and can taste a little dull, unless they are loaded with added sugar. Of the very few flavoured ones currently available, all have added sugar or sweetened ingredients, which rather defeats the object.
Nut Blend was created by London-based Gabriella Block, on a mission to create an indulgent, feel-good and mood-boosting product without relying on sugar. The brand has launched four delicious flavours: all with no added sugar or sweeteners, no palm oil and no added salt. Nut Blend’s unique nut butters are a blend of just nuts and a pinch of natural spices – literally nothing else – to naturally satisfy, brighten and boost your energy, without the sugar high.

Gabriella said: “In 2015, I struggled to find food products on the market that boosted my mood and energy without relying on any type of added sugar, including naturally sourced sweeteners. After growing bored of plain almond butter, I decided to invest in a food processor and start making my own healthy nut butter blends, combinations of just nuts and a pinch of spice. Nothing else.
The resulting texture and taste was 100x better; I quickly fell in love with how great it made me feel – and couldn’t put the spoon down!
I proclaimed to my Mum; I think I could sell this! That was it – I set up Nut Blend and can now share the feel-good energy it provides with o thers.”
Spread it on toast, pour it over oats, blend it into a smoothie or stick a spoonful straight in. Nut Blend’s nut butters are a dose of feel-good energy.
