Homemade Nut Butter

We have been making almond butter occasionally for the past few years that we’ve had our Vitamix. The last time we The Special One made some, something went wrong and the Vitamix broke.

The cool thing about Vitamix is that when things go wrong, you call them up and they send you a replacement for free. Pronto. Sometimes you have to pay because someone forgot the metal spoon in the blender (this happened at least 3 times). Kudos to the Vitamix though because the spoons had to be thrown away.

I read on the Vitamix website here that roasting the nuts gives them a creamier texture, so I decided to try it. We only had bags of mixed nuts so used that. Total awesomeness! The butter was so creamy and delicious and the best part was that it was done in less than half the time it takes to make it with unroasted nuts. We added a couple of twists of sea salt from the grinder and that was it.

Delicious on slices of apple, on the low carb crackers from The Real Meal Revolution or straight off the spoon.

There you have it. Short and sweet but oh so good!

Thanks for reading x
