Homemade Cashew Butter + Cashew Honey Spread (SCD Friendly)
  • 2 cups room temperature raw organic cashews *
  • ½ teaspoon oil (or as needed)
  1. Add the cashews to blender and start on low, allowing the cashews to turn into flour. Then turn it up a notch and use the tamper to keep things moving.
  2. You will feel like the motor is going to burn out, but you're okay (and it's loud). Keep it moving.
  3. I don't turn the blender on high during this process (you know, that left switch) - I just keep it turned up to about 10.
  4. After it looks really well incorporated and starts getting creamy, add in the little bit of oil and continue blending. The oil just helps move things along in the final process. Add more as needed.
  5. The cashew butter will be very warm the longer you blend. YOu might want to take a break if things are getting too hot. Use a silicone spatchula to scoop everything out. Don't worry about the little bit remaining between the blades, just make a smoothie and it will clean it right out.
  6. You can store the cashew butter in an air tight container in the cupboard.
