NuttZo is the Original Mixed-Nut and Seed Butter.

NuttZo, known for its blend of 7 nuts and seeds and cult-like following, was pioneered in our founder’s kitchen over 10 years ago — back when there were only peanut butters and almond butters.

The Story - circa 2008

Sometimes life’s unexpected twists and turns lead you to your best life. After adopting her two sons, Danielle, founder of the NuttZo brand, was focused on creating the most nutrient dense meals for their bodies. The boys were both extremely picky eaters but they loved peanut butter. In desperation, she took to the kitchen and blended a mix of nuts and seeds to make a delicious plant-based protein source for them that gave them the diverse vitamins and minerals they needed. Voilà, the nut and seed butter brand ‘NuttZo’ was born!

About the Founder

Danielle LiVolsi is a mission-driven dynamo. Her tenacity and entrepreneurial prowess was evident in her early media career with a New York City publisher and a top-ranked San Diego radio station, so it’s no surprise she dreamed up an entirely new natural food category while perusing the peanut butter and jelly aisle of her local grocery store! Searching for protein and nutrient-rich options for her adopted sons, she found plenty of peanut butter, some almond butter … and that’s about it. Once home, Danielle grabbed her food processor and blended every possible combination of nuts and seeds, taste-testing along the way with the help of her sons, until Nuttzo was born.
