Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups peanuts roasted, unsalted and shelled
  • 1 tsp Himalayan or Sea Salt add to taste

For optional flavors

  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp maca powder

Instructions
 

  • Put the peanuts into the Vitamix Blender, add the salt and place the lid
  • Switch the blender on at low speed, gradually increasing it after a few seconds (approx 1 minute) and cranking it up to high speed
  • The peanuts will begin to break down and look crumbly
  • Hold down the tamper to push the peanuts towards the blades
  • The blended peanuts will start to firm up
  • Now is the best time to add any optional ingredients¬†
  • If you prefer a chunkier peanut butter, turn off the blender while you can still see some lumps. Continue to blend if you want a smooth buttery consistency
  • After a minute the sound of the machine will convert from high pitched whirring to a lower hum, that's your queue to know that your peanut butter is ready
  • Scrape the edges of the blender with a spatula
  • Pour your concoction into an airtight jar and refrigerate

Tips

  • Roasted, salted peanuts can be used as a substitute
  • Peanut butter in a sealed jar can be stored at room temperature for upto 2 weeks, whereas refrigeration will prolong it to 6 weeks(approximately)
  • To clean your Vitamix, scoop out all the remaining peanut butter. Pour in some water and dishwashing liquid, remember to secure the lid. Power up your Vitamix and let it blend the soapy water for a minute, this will help clean out any crevices you were unable to reach. Turn off the blender and pour out the water, give the blender one last rinse
