Homemade vanilla cashew butter recipe

Yields about 2 cups


  • 2 cups roasted cashews
  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut or vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt


  1. In a food processor, add all of the ingredients and process for 1 minute. With a spatula scrape down the sides of the bowl and process the cashews again. You will need to repeat this step quite a few times until the cashews are very smooth (this takes patience).
  2. Once the cashew butter is done, spoon the cashew butter into a clean Mason jar and seal with a lid. Store the cashew butter in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  3. Serve on toast, apples and sandwiches or add to smoothies.

I'm going to make this with raw cashews. You can also substitute fresh squeezed orange juice for the coconut. Thank you for the idea. I'm making it today.:-)
