DIY Nut Butters


Find Liv Life  (DIY Nut Butters) on the Blendtec Blog!

From elementary through high school, the all-American PBJ became my lunchtime staple.  Soft bread slathered with peanutty wonderfulness and a large dollop of apricot jam, the combo always (and still does) brought a smile to my face.  Or... how about my beloved peanut butter cup??  The only candy I ever devoured (well... along with a Butterfinger or two) out of my Halloween bag, I remember trading everything else away, then hoarding my stash of pb cups for weeks.

But then I grew up and became a mom, and the ingredients in the store bought jars of brand name peanut butters left me wanting less.  Less ingredients.  For a true nut butter, the ingredient should be - the nut.  And I turned to natural peanut butter from Trader Joe's.  One day though, unpacking my bag and I found I had grabbed Almond Butter rather than Peanut butter and thought, what the heck??  I'll give it a go.  And my world opened just a little bit more.

Opening my world even further though, was the arrival in my kitchen of the Blendtec Twister Jar which now allows me to make my own nut butter concoctions at will.  Cashew Butter anyone??  Or how about the luxurious and ethereal Macadamia Butter??  Or perhaps a Crunchy Cashew Peanut version??

You can find them all on the Blendtec Blog where Liv Life is guest posting with our DIY Nut Butter post.  Join me?
