How to make nut and coconut butter (click through for recipe)       I’m so excited to share today’s post because it’s SO DELICIOUS. I wish you could stick your hand through the computer and I could let you sample these three butters…. they’re so good. And I can’t believe how simple they were to make! 

We’re teaming up with Vitamix, a brand we ADORE. I wanted to share these coconut and nut butter recipes because they’re one of the many very useful (and $ saving) recipes you can make with your Vitamix. I was on the fence for years, wanting one but not ready to pull the trigger, and it’s recipes like this that really make it a game changer! When you get the right blender, it can take the place of so many appliances. They even just launched a partnership with PayPal to make buying easier. Anyway, let’s make some coconut and nut butter!

Needed: 4 cups shredded or flaked unsweetened coconut

Start on a low setting and move up to a medium setting the blender can handle. After a few minutes, the coconut flakes should turn into a grainy pulp, but keep going (scraping the sides down as needed) until it turns into a smooth-looking consistency (there will still be small grains in the butter, but pretty smooth overall). Pour the butter into a jar for storage.

You don’t need to refrigerate it, but you can if you want it to be a harder consistency. If it’s too hard to spread, you can microwave it for a few seconds to warm it up.

3 cups roasted salted peanuts
1 tablespoon oil (safflower is a good choice)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Gradually increase the speed as high as your blender can handle while still mixing all the ingredients together. Blend until the peanuts are smooth, adding more oil if needed, and then add in the sugar and cocoa powder and blend until combined.

Add to a storage jar and refrigerate if you think it will take you more than a month or two to finish it (otherwise you don’t really need to).

I personally like the slightly grainy texture of the sugar. And remember, you do not have to sweeten these butters if you are avoiding sugar altogether. 

Yum! My personal favorite was the snickerdoodle butter, just because I’ve never had anything like it before! They are all really good though. If you have any questions about the Vitamix or about making nut or coconut butter, we’re here to help. xx- Elsie
