Nothing delicious than creamy peanut butter, you want to buy some jars and eat them a whole week. But why you need to buy if you can make it at your home? The biggest reason why you should make your own is because it healthier! You can make sure the ingredients and avoid preservative things on it. The other thing is you can use organic peanuts that will definitely healthier than the regular one.
I remember the first day I made my peanut butter, it was all messed up because I was using a poor blender. I nearly had to throw them to garbage because what I got is just a full of peanut crackers. Fortunately I had a great idea to use it as toping of my brownies cakes :)
When you decide to make a peanut butter with blender, make sure you have a powerful blender like Vitamix blender otherwise you cannot get anything near "creamy butter". Believe me I was in that condition.
I found that the only thing that can turn the peanuts to creamy butter is the blender blades rotation which crush and provide some heat to be able extracting the peanut oil which can make the dry peanut to wet creamy and delicious butter.
Before I decided to use Vitamix I was also considering Ninja Kitchen Blender, but glad I found this article that show me how Vitamix vs Ninja Kitchen performance result when making peanut butter. That article really give me no hesitate to choose Vitamix rather than Ninja Kitchen, the video show me the different.
With Vitamix blender it very easy to make peanut butter, here is my recipe to make creamy peanut butter.
3 pounds dry roasted peanuts
1 tablespoon of peanut oil
1. Place the peanuts in the blender container and process for 2 to 3 minutes, until smooth and creamy
It is very simple right? For peanut oil if you can't find it, you leave it. The rotation from the Vitamix blades really fast and able to make the oil extracted from the roasted peanuts you use.
Enjoy your creamy and delicious peanut butter :)
