Homemade Peanut Butter and Peanut Butter Frosting

What happens when you buy peanuts in bulk and they start to go stale? A whole bunch of peanut butter, that's what. Peanut butter (or any nut butter for that matter) is extremely easy to make in a Vitamix machine. Here's my recipe:

Peanuts (any amount you want, I did 3 cups)

Put peanuts into Vitamix. Turn it on starting at variable speed 1 and increasing to 10. Then flip to High. Use tamper to press all the nuts into the blades. After just 2 minutes or so you will have peanut butter, fresh, warm, and additive-free!

What to do with all the peanut butter? Make a yummy frosting! The recipe is simple:

Equal parts peanut butter, dripped yogurt, and honey

Ex: 1/3 cup peanut butter, 1/3 cup yogurt, and 1/3 cup honey.

Goes great on scd pancakes, cupcakes, or any kind of cake for that matter. It's even good by the spoonful ;D


  1. looks fantastic! make me wish i had a vitamix!

  2. It's definitely worth every penny!

  3. OH I'm in love!!!

    We have a bad peanut butter addiction in our house. My husband and 2 year old daughter can eat a whole jar together just by spoon! However the one that they are addicted to is Peter Pan with honey. So, i just might have to make this with some honey in it!
