- 4 cups (552 g) unsalted roasted almonds
- ¼ cup (60 ml) canola oil
- Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
- Select Variable 1.
- Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
- Use the tamper to press the ingredients into the blades.
- In 1 minute you will hear a high-pitched chugging sound. Once the butter begins to flow freely through the blades, the motor sound will change and become low and laboring. Stop machine.
- Store in an airtight container. It can also be frozen for longer storage.
This recipe has been written for the C-Series and G-Series machines with Variable Speed control and 64-ounce container. If you are using a different Vitamix machine or container size, you may need to make adjustments to the Variable Speed, processing time, and/or ingredient quantities.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Happyenergy from Easy and yummy! This the most basic and uncomplicated version of almond butter. There is so much confusion on wet blender, dry blender, oils etc. This is all you need and it's good! I add a touch of sea salt and I use almond oil myself..

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeniseG from Money Saver Easy Fresh Almond Butter The receipe was easy... the clean up took longer LOL It's a lot less expensive making your own almond butter than buying it at the store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dario from Best Ever A few months ago we bought a Vitamix 7500, have used often and since buying it I have made our own raw almond butter, for a creamier texture I use 1/3 cup of canola oil instead of the recommended 1/4. Would not go back to the store bought almond butter.

I have the Vitamix 750. Which container do you recommend for best results? Is a narrower one better, or does the wide 64 oz container it came with work just as well?
For nut butters I have found the 64 ounce low profile to work the best. You do not need to use the tamper as much with this container.

Can I use coconut oil or is canola oil better
You can use coconut oil and it will have a great additional flavor.

My vitamix keeps shutting off after about 30 seconds of blending. It won't turn the almonds into butter, only almond meal. I did use oil. I'm using the tamper, but it seems to be compacting the powder into the blades, making the motor overheat.
There are multiple things that can happen. First make sure the almonds are put into the blender first and not the oil. Second make sure you are using the 64 ounce tall container and that you only use 4 cups of almonds. Finally, turn the machine on and go to the highest setting very quickly. By having your machine on the highest setting it will allow the motors fan to work the best and keep the motor cooler longer. If these few tips still don't help please contact us at 1 800 Vitamix and our customer contact center can assist.

Just purchased the vita mix 32 ounce dry grain container. Can I make almond butter in it?
Yes you can make almond butter in it. I would recommend using a cup of almonds for the recipe.

Would you be willing to Demo making raw almond butter, using soaked almonds? Raw almond butter retains its enzymes. Soaking the nuts removes the enzyme inhibitors and thus the goodness of the almonds is fully retained.
If you would like to soak your almonds go right ahead, you will not need to add the canola oil in the recipe if you do. Follow the same instructions that are in the recipe.

It's been mentioned that this can be made without oil; I tried that and got more of an almond meal than butter. Would love to know the secret (perhaps there's a critical amount or a speed?) to making it with just almonds.
Almonds are a fairly dry nut so if you are looking for a very smooth kind of butter than we recommend using an oil to help facilitate a creamy smooth texture.

what are the directions for roasting the almonds?
You can purchase almonds already roasted or you could roast the raw almonds in an oven at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes.

Can I use the 64 oz container that came with my vitamix that fits under the counter? The U-tube video said I had to use the "dry container" for net butters.
Yes you can use the 64 ounce container that came with your Vitamix. The dry blade container is more efficient in grinding ingredients so that is the preferred container to use.
