What I like about my Thermomix is the ability to make nut butter naturally at home whenever we need to refill. It is incredibly easy to make my own nut butter with the Thermomix. I would toast the nuts first then dump them into the Thermomix and blend until the paste becomes glistering with the oil released from the nuts. Depending on the quantity of my nuts and the type of nuts, I will be blending for around 2 x 2 minutes at speed 10, and occasionally turbo when I think extra boosts are required.
Homemade nut butter is rich in variety of nutrients, including large quantities of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (49–74% total fat), and moderate amounts of protein (9–20%). Nut butter is a good source of dietary fibre and provide a wide range of essential nutrients, including several B group vitamins (including folate), vitamin E, minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, potassium and magnesium, antioxidant minerals (selenium, manganese and copper), plus other phytochemicals such as antioxidant compounds (flavonoids and resveratrol) and plant sterols.
The advantages of using the Thermomix is that the motor does not heat up the nut butter, meaning, my nut butters will have longer shelf life. Once the nut butter looks glistering, I add a pinch of salt and blend a further 20sec. After scoping them out from the mixing bowl, I will stir in some honey into the nut butter.
Ta da, completely preservative free. The honey's natural antiseptic properties will do its magic to keep the nut butter fresh.
Any types of nuts can be used and some will taste better roasted eg. cashew, almond, peanuts. Try making your own nut butter. Add some chocolate to roasted hazel nuts and we will get copycat "Nutella".
