Macadamia nut butter
All natural and 100 % good for you. there are no excuses to buy store bought nut butters ever again. Macadamia nuts make the most amazing butters because they are so deliciously creamy and high in anti-inflammatory mono-unsaturated fats similar to olive oil and avocado. I use macadamia nut butter to replace traditional butter in a lot of my recipes, spread it on almond or banana bread, mix with cocoa powder and a little honey for the best home made nutella or chocolate sauce, makes amazing ice cream too. !
Time it takes: 1 minute
450 g (3 cups) macadamia nuts
Pour macadamia nuts into a high performance blender like a Vitamix.
Turn your machine on and using the tamper press the macadamia nuts into the blades.
In less than a minute, you’ll have a lovely creamy butter as it moves freely through the blades.
Turn the machine off and remove the butter into a storage container to use when required. Store in the fridge and enjoy.
