      What type of blender are you using? I find it takes a high-end blender like a Blend Tec or a Vitamix to effectively grind up nuts, however, as an alternative, you could try a spoon of pure, raw almond butter instead (in any amount to suit your taste). We make smoothies with almond butter using a $49 immersion blender.
