What That Blender Do?: 9 Foods You Probably Didn’t Know You Could Finesse With That Appliance
Nut butters seem to be priced like gold at health food stores. The only affordable ones left are also the highly-processed ones with ingredients lists longer than a CVS receipt. Maybe that’s not what you want to feed your family. But you do appreciate the convenience of nut butter. It’s a quick, easy way to get tons of protein and healthy fats in a small serving and it goes so well with just about anything from apple slices to toast to cereal. So, save yourself some cash and make your own nut butter at home. You definitely cannot blend this stuff by hand. But, again, your blender has your back. Roast about three cups of raw nuts of your choosing in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Transfer to a blender. Chop it up in the blender and start adding grapeseed oil very slowly – just drizzling – until you get the desired consistency. Some add cinnamon or maple syrup for sweetness.
