INGREDIENTS & SUBSTITUTIONS

Dry roasted salted peanuts work best for this homemade peanut butter. Roasted peanuts tend to release their oils more naturally and quickly, which aids in the processing of making peanut butter.

If desired, use unsalted peanuts. Then, you can decide if you want to add in a certain type of salt to your Vitamix or leave it out altogether.

WHICH VITAMIX MODEL TO USE

Since Vitamix blenders are incredibly powerful, all models work well!

I used my Vitamix E310 which is a more inexpensive option. The peanut butter was smooth and creamy in less than 2 minutes!

If using another brand of blender or food processor, this process could take up to 10 minutes. I highly recommend using a Vitamix if you own one!

HOW TO MAKE

STEP 1

First, add peanuts to Vitamix blender.

EXPERT TIPS & TRICKS

Roasted peanuts are easier to blend than raw peanuts. I suggest using roasted!

Use the tamper accessory that comes with the Vitamix. Push down peanuts closer to the blade to speed up blending.

If your Vitamix has started to heat up, simply turn it off and let it rest for a minute. Then, continue blending.

VARIATIONS & ADD INS

Here are some great ideas to add in to the peanut butter. Add these ingredients to Vitamix with peanuts before blending.

  • maple syrup
  • honey
  • vanilla extract
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • ground ginger
  • chia seeds
  • coconut sugar
  • cocoa powder

Add these ingredients in very small amounts to start. Then, adjust to suit your taste. Check out this Coconut Peanut Butter too!

HOW TO CLEAN VITAMIX AFTER MAKING PEANUT BUTTER

One of the best things about a Vitamix is how easy it is to clean!

After making peanut butter and scraping the blender clean with a spoon or rubber spatula, add 1 cup of water and a squirt of dish soap to Vitamix. Place cover on top. Mix on low medium speed until clean.

I usually give it another rinse to ensure blender is completely clean.

HOW TO SERVE & STORE

Serve peanut butter immediately or store in a glass jar with lid.

Store at room temperature for up to 1 month. If natural oil separation occurs, stir before using.

This Vitamix peanut butter can be refrigerated, but it will firm up.

I’m a long time lover of enjoying peanut butter for breakfast in some way. From smoothies, to cookies to a plain ole peanut butter sandwich, you really can’t go wrong with a healthy dose of protein packed peanut butter.

Now unless you’re buying natural “just peanuts” peanut butter, there’s often added sugar and oil in store bought peanut butter.

So if you’re trying to avoid oil and refined sugar, this peanut butter recipe is for you. Plus, it’s so simple to make and comes together in a literal 2 minutes!

Can you even beat that??

HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER IN YOUR VITAMIX

Peanut butter with just peanuts is as simple as adding peanuts to your blender. I like to use anywhere between two and four cups per batch.

You’ll need a minimum of two cups to have enough volume for your machine to catch and blend nicely. (At least, in my experience.) More than four cups I find a bit difficult to get an even consistency, even when using the tamper.

So the sweet spot is anywhere between two and four cups here.

So start by measuring out your peanuts.

Add them to your Vitamix with the optional salt, if using and start blending on high speed.

The peanuts will quickly break down into a crumbly texture, and start clumping together.

About a minute of processing will turn your nuts into creamy, smooth nut butter.

Now, if you don’t have a Vitamix, you can still make creamy, delicious peanut butter in a food processor. It will take a little longer to break down from peanuts to butter, but it will!

If using a food processor, take breaks during the blending process to prevent over heating of your machine. Scrape down the sides as needed, and pause every 30-60 seconds for at least 30 seconds and continue. Keep repeating this process until you get smooth peanut butter.

HOW TO STORE HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER

Transfer your peanut butter to a clean, glass jar or container and you may store at room temperature for every day use for up to two weeks.

I bet it would last longer than that too, but I haven’t been able to keep mine longer than that to test it!

Alternatively, store in the refrigerator for even longer, although the spread may slightly harden, without affecting the flavour.

HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER VITAMIX? THE RECIPE AND TIPS

Making fresh homemade peanut butter at home is simple to do with the help of a high powered blender – we use a Vitamix. I use dry roasted peanuts and a little sea salt for flavor. That’s it. I don’t add any oils, and since I’m only using peanuts and sea salt, there’s no added preservatives. Of course, you can always use roasted, salted peanuts if you’d like to reduce the ingredients down to one. The Mister and I prefer to control the amount of salt in our foods which is why we add salt to items instead of buying salted foods.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE VITAMIX PEANUT BUTTER ?

Vitamix peanut butter takes only a minute or so to do. Really. All you do is add peanuts to the Vitamix blender container, put on the lid, turn it on and tamp the nuts with your handy tamping tool. Empty the peanut butter into an airtight container and that’s it. Done. The taste is out of this world, too.

I make small batches of peanut butter as needed in our kitchen, using our 32 oz. wet pitcher. For a larger batch, I recommend using the 64 oz. wet pitcher instead, and increasing the peanuts to 3 cups.
