Continuing with my mission to make everything from scratch I knew Peanut Butter would have to make an appearance pretty soon. Organic Peanut butter without any nasties is expensive and I wanted to have complete control over my own ingredients. I am going to be bringing you as many homemade smoothie ingredients as I can in the near future, so let me know if there is a homemade ingredient that can be used in smoothies that you would like the recipe for.
This homemade peanut butter just happens to be the most gorgeous peanut butter I’ve ever tasted too.
How to make Peanut Butter
I have tried this recipe 2 different ways, one with a very cheap food processor and again with my high powered blender (Vitamix). It works really well both ways but the vitamix is faster as it only takes 1 minute and you can’t get better than that for something you make yourself.
I bought myself a big batch of organic peanuts for this recipe which will see me through many batches of peanut butter. I like buying in bulk to save money but also get better quality.
To make this recipe you roast your peanuts in the oven, leave them to cool then add the rest of the ingredients and either process in the food processor or blend in the vitamix.

The food processor method is a bit easier although it takes longer. If I can do it with a cheap food processor I’m sure it’s possible for anyone.
There is a bit of a knack involved with using the vitamix. I had tried and failed several times to make peanut butter in my vitamix. The instructions I’d followed said to turn my machine to high quickly and use the tamper to press the peanuts down for 1 minute and then stop. When I first tried this my machine made such a loud noise I was scared I’d burn out the motor so I didn’t have the guts to continue with the machine on high. I tried to blend the peanuts with the machine on low and ended up burning out my motor anyway. It did start working again thankfully but I didn’t want to risk that happening again. A few weeks later I was determined to try again and this time I turned the machine very quickly up to high and pushed the peanuts down quickly and managed to stand the noise for a minute. After that time I had peanut butter. Yay! It is very easy to do but you’ve just got to have confidence in your machine.

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
