Nut butter!

I love almond butter, peanut butter, cashew butter - any kind of nut butter and I am a fan! Recently I got a Champion juicer. I like to juice, but the main reason for wanting one was to make nut butters!

I made several jars for gifts and had to make some for myself as well. It is so easy when you have the right tools!

I used roasted, salted nuts (almonds and cashews) and ran them through the Champion. It really doesn't get any easier than this.

My only complaint about the Champion is that it is hard to clean, but this time around, I soaked the parts for a little while and the clean up was much easier YAY!!!

The almonds are roasted and go into the feeder:

Use the tamper to push the almonds into the chamber to make the nut butter:

Here's the finished product, catch it in a clean jar and you are ready to enjoy!


  1. Oh my goodness how cool!! =) Didn't even know something like that exsisted for home use!!

  2. Oh, I use to have a juicer like that and I remember it said you could make nut butters with it. Someday I've got to invest in another one of those!

    Thanks for stopping by Peas Love Carrots!

  3. Okay you know i have that exact same juicer. I didn't realize you could do that. And soaking them is a brilliant idea, because I agree, it is difficult to clean. I will start doing that. How many almonds for one jar, and is it just straight almond?


  4. I need that.

    I am practically ADDICTED to cashew butter.

  5. wow. i didn't realize you could make your own nutbutter. i totally want to do this.

    stopping by from sits!

  6. Kaci - I love it. It's pretty easy to do!

    Mae - You will love it! I use it frequently!

    Kathryn - just almonds, nothing else. I just use what I have on hand to make a full jar or so.

    Karen - I love cashew butter too :)

    w - I have to make it since I love it so much and eat it every day!

  7. Hi. Thanks for following me. I'm following you now too. We had a jar of cashew butter before & it was really good. I'm not big on peanut butter unless it's with chocolate.

  8. Very cool! Have you ever tried sunflower seed butter? YUMMERS!!!
