Artisana Cashini Nut Butter Review

Yesterday I got a large box from UPS. I had no clue what it was. I was very surprised when I opened it and saw all of this. Premier Organics was very generous and sent me a variety of their products to review. I am so excited about this being one of many reviews about Artisana Nut Butter from Premier Organics.

Here is a little bit of information from their website:

What makes our Nut Butters so special?

TasteSimply put, they taste the best

Unique variety In addition to our superior Almond Butter and Tahini, we make five unique varieties: Walnut Butter, Pecan Butter, Cashew Butter, and Macadamia/Cashew Butter. Our coconut products include the ever popular Coconut Butter and it's related "Bliss SuperFood Blends... as well as our NEW Extra Virgin Pure Coconut Oil.

FreshWe hand-select only the finest new-harvest nuts, seeds and coconut for our butters - our almonds and walnuts are the best California has to offer

Quality All of our nut and seed butters are hand crafted in small batches in Berkeley, CA with careful attention to detail.

Organic We only use 100% certified Organic nuts, seeds, and coconut meat which means no toxic pesticides, chemicals, or genetically modified organisms. (Certified by QAI)

Pure We don't add any extra ingredients. No salt, sugar, preservatives or artificial flavors - Nothing. Which means that all you get is the clean, fresh taste of nuts and seeds the way nature intended.

Raw The ingredients which comprise our products are raw, not roasted, and made into butter with a low temperature process. This means that all of the enzymes, proteins and vitamins are intact, in their natural state and fully utilized by the body. Heat destroys these sensitive nutrients.

PowerfulForget caffeine! Packed with energy-laden nutrients, our nut butters are a great source of sustained energy.

Healthy Nuts and seeds in the form that we make them - totally raw and organic and processed into butter (purée) - are among the most basic and healthy foods one can eat on the planet, offering to the consumer:

*Non-animal proteins and enzymes

*Vitamins and Minerals

*Essential fatty-acids (including Omega-3, of which Walnut butter has the most)


... All in products more readily digestible than whole nuts...making them truly whole foods.


Kosher All of our products are KSA Kosher certified.

Storage – None of our products need to be refrigerated

I had a very hard time trying to decide what to try first. I ended up going with the Cashini. It is a very smooth blend of cashews, sesame seeds, and sea salt.
Here is what the packet looks like opened.
I put most of the Cashini in a smoothie. But it was so good I licked every last morsel of it from the wrapper. I have never tasted anything quite like this. I am super pumped Premier Organics sent a large jar of Cashini along with this packet. If you haven't tried this go get some now! This shows where you can get it online.

For those of you that track Weight Watchers points a packet is 5 points.
