If you love spreading nut butters onto your toast (or eating them by the spoonful!) as much as we do, you’ll love this velvety-smooth, creamy and indulgent sweet cashew butter!
It’s quick and simple to make and only requires a handful of ingredients, but you do need a good quality, powerful blender to get the smooth consistency. We use a Ninja Power Foodi Blender, using the ‘Power Nutri Cup’ and running it on the ‘Powermix’ setting twice. You can, of course, use other powerful blenders, so long as they can cope with thick consistency mixes and give you a smooth blend.
Ingredients (makes approx. 300g of sweet cashew butter):
- 170g cashews
- 130ml vegetable oil
- 80g icing sugar (you can adjust the quantities if you like your cashew butter sweeter or less sweet)
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- generous pinch of fine sea salt
Place all ingredients into your blender and mix until you obtain a smooth consistency.
Please note that this may generate quite a bit of heat so the resulting cashew butter may initially be warm and a little bit runny, but it will get thicker as it sets in the fridge.
Pour the cashew butter into a glass jar and store in the fridge.
