I love homemade nut butter. Doesn’t matter if it’s pistachio, peanut, almond, or cashew, DIY nut butter is always delicious! And, making your own pistachio nut butter (or any type of nut butter) is easier than you think! In this video, I teach you the simplest way to make pistachio nut butter / paste. Feel free to use peanuts, almonds, or other nuts. Revolutionize your snacking with this simple recipe!
Pistachio nut butter
- 16 ounce bag ~3 ½ cups of roasted, shelled pistachios
- Note: if using unsalted pistachios add ~1 teaspoon kosher salt to blender
- Optional: 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Place pistachios into a vitamix or other high powered blender. A food processor will work, but the time will be approximately 5 minutes longer. Starting on lowest speed, blend mixture about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Increase speed and blend about 4 to 5 minutes until smooth and creamy, scraping down sides with a rubber spatula as needed. Add oil slowly if necessary to add more creaminess.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
