Total Time:

6 Minutes


2.0 Litre Container

Almond butter made in Vitamix blender


4 cups (600 g) almonds, roasted, unsalted


1. Place ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
2. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed.
3. Use the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades.
4. In 1 minute you will hear a high-pitched chugging sound. Once the butter begins to flow freely through the blades, the motor sound will change and become low and laboring. Stop machine.
5. Store in an airtight container. It can also be frozen for longer storage.

Chef's Notes

If using raw almonds, you will need to use 1/4 cup of oil or liquid to create a creamy texture. If you choose to roast your own raw almonds, ensure that they are roasted at 350°F for at least 10-15 minutes. This toasting, combined with blending on high speed, is what allows the natural oils to be released from inside the nuts, and is vital for creating a smooth texture instead of a paste. Blend for 1 minute for a chunkier butter, or 2 minutes for a creamier butter.
