View Full Version : How do I make nut butter?
10-02-2005, 11:51 AM
If anybody could tell me how to make a nice nut butter (using whatever nuts work best) that would be awesome. I would love something to dip my vegetables in at work! I have a k-tec HP3 blender but no dehydrator.

Run it through a juicer if you have one. The Green Life/Green Power, Champion or, Healthy Juicer (manual) "should" work for you.

Good question !
I tried to make some yesterday, I have a green star, and it came out very grainy. Not creamy at all ( like the store bought ). So I ran it through 3 times in all and still not creamy. I used almonds that were soaked. Should I have used unsoaked? Or dehydrated them first???

Try unsoaked and add a touch of oil. I've made it w/ my Healthy Juicer and it's come out fine.

I have a borrowed Champion, so I am always trying to figure out how to make something for when I DON'T have the champion. I once made an almond butter by putting my almonds through my coffee grinder, but they weren't soaked....so this is ok? When I found out all about soaking, I quit making the almond butter, because I couldn't soak them first....is this right...I can make almond butter out of UNSOAKED almonds? Then I add some oil to the almond "powder". Hope this helps.

I make almond butter from unsoaked almonds in the GreenStar Juicer, and you get a powder from it. Then I add a small amount of apple juice or water and mix - it turns out very creamy. I tried oil, but it was too heavy for me.

Ohhh....maybe the apple juice kinda breaks down the almonds some to make it more creamy? I'll give that a try.
