Almond Butter
Almond Butter

Almond butter is a healthy and delicious alternative for those who either can't eat or don't like peanut butter. Almond butter is packed to the brim with proteins, fiber and has far less saturated fat than peanut butter. As with all foods of this nature, it is a far better idea to simply make your own because then you will know that there hasn't been any undue processing done to the butter. We'll teach you just how to make delicious almond butter in your own home using just a little bit of canola oil, fresh unsalted almonds, and a Vitamix blender!

Used in this Recipe:


Almond Butter

 

Ingredients:

 
- 4 Cups of Unsalted Roasted Almonds
- 1/4 Cup of fresh Canola Oil
 

Directions:

  1. Place all of the ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid tightly.
  2. Starting on the lowest speed setting, turn on the blender and slowly increase the speed until it reaches the highest setting. 
  3. Use the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades
  4. In about one minute, you will hear a high-pitched chugging sound. Once the butter begins to flow freely through the blades, the motor sound will change and become low and laboring. Stop the machine. 
  5. Store in an airtight container. It can also be frozen for longer storage.
