- 3 cups (420 g) unsalted roasted peanuts
- Pour nuts into the Vitamix container and secure lid.
- Select Variable 1.
- Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High, using the tamper to push 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 from a high pitch to a low laboring sound. Stop machine.
- Store in an airtight container. It can also be frozen for longer storage.
CAUTION: Over processing will cause overheating to your machine. Do not process for more than 1 minute after mixture starts circulating freely. For recipe variation, see Cashew Nut Butter and Almond Butter recipes.
This recipe has been written for the C-Series machines with Variable Speed control and Standard 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.
Peanut Butter is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BrendaHatfield from I'm in love with my Vitamix! I bought this about 6 weeks ago and I love it. I loved it before I paid for it. I loved it after my first smoothie, after my first soup, ice cream, fruit sorbet, chopped veggies, flour and now peanut butter. What other appliance can do all that, I've not met one. I'd love to be a sales person, I've already sold three of these and not made a cent, probably a few dollars for a salesperson.

Is it really safe to make this in the normal container? I have the 750 pro series with the container that came with it, so I don't have the special dry container... Don't want to ruin the machine in my first week ;)
Yes all of our machines are able to make peanut butter.

I just made my first batch of peanut butter, yet has a grainy texture. I'm pretty sure I ran the blender long enough, the peanut butter was warm and came out of the canister quite nicely. Was I supposed to be using the dry container?
Making peanut butter in Vitamix is great and the best thing is you can get the texture you want. In this recipe we run it for 1 minute this will still have some texture to it. If you would like creamery peanut butter run it for 2 minutes or until the peanut butter is flowing easily through the blades.

How do you clean the peanut butter out of the container
One trick is to make a smoothie after you have finished making your peanut butter. Another is to use a little warm water and a drop of soap and run the machine to clean the container. Here is a video to clean your container for reference - https://www.vitamix.com/why-vitamix/what-you-can-make#selfcleaning.
