Coconut Peanut Butter

When I bought my Vitamix the first thing I made was peanut butter. Oh my goodness, since then I think the Vitamix has paid for itself just in my peanut butter savings. I was so sick of every peanut butter having added salts and sugars ... even the natural ones! I know it's a natural sweetener but really, does peanut butter need sweetening?! I didn't think so.

When I was buying peanut butter, I was addicted to the Earth Balance brand because they used coconut oil and it had the slightest most delicious taste of peanut butter ever. I had to make mine like theirs!

When done, I always like making a quick shake to get all the extra peanut butter that sticks to the side.

This recipe works great with almonds too!


Coconut Peanut Butter

Makes 3 cups

1 1/2 lbs. dry roasted peanuts, unsalted
1/4 c coconut oil (should be unrefined ... it needs to smell like coconuts)
1/4 c unsweetened shredded coconut


Put ingredients into your Vitamix and blend away! Takes about 30-45 seconds.

The chunkier you want it, the less you need to blend it. The slight taste of coconut is amazing!
