Recipe#1 To Make Almond Butter In A BlenderTo make almond butter, take roasted almonds, preferably unsalted. If they are unsalted, then the person can control the amount of salt they put in it. Take 286g, which is 2 cups of unsalted roasted almonds, and put them in a high speed blender. Blend for 7-8 minutes, and during this time, slowly add coarse sea salt, 1-2 tsp. Don’t add the salt right away, but in intervals. When the almonds reach the desired taste, then stop the blender and put the butter in an airtight container. If it is not being used right away, then put it in the freezer.
