Sorry for no blog post yesterday. I (Michelle) have had a few really bad days with my eczema so I have not been motivated to sit down and do work. When I am going through a rough patch it literally takes over my mind, my body. I cannot focus on anything besides not itching. And then when I do itch I get upset. Then cry. I feel horrible as I have not been able to help Lori as much with Madison. I feel like a bad aunt. But Lori reassures me they are fine, just focus on me getting better. I will give more of an update tomorrow.

Today we are in the kitchen making some of our favorite things –> coconut and nut butters!!

We love making our nut/seed butters at home as it is easy to do using a vitamix blender or food processor. And it is much cheaper than buying store bought brands. how to make homemade nut seed butters in vitamix blender and recipes using nut and seed butters via @purelytwins

There is no wrong or right way to make nut or seed butters. We are just sharing how we do it. There are a ton of recipes out there. They are easy to make and customize using different flavorings.

All we do is take a few cups of a nut or seed and blend until creamy. Although sometimes we stop short to have a thicker nut butter. And we get lazy haha. We usually soak and dry the nuts and seeds, but this is optional.  We are obsessed with coconut butter.

Have fun making nut/seed and coconut butter friends!

  4. Holy recipe jackpot. My mouth was literally drooling as I read this post. I actually just made homemade almond butter for the first time this weekend and wanted to bonk myself on the head for not doing it before. Now, I have so many great recipes I can’t wait to use it in! Thank you. I hope you get to feeling better soon!

  9. I think the shredded coconut I have is dried. Is that ok to use to make coconut butter if I soak it first?

    Posted on December 3, 2015 at 9:43 am
    1. Lindsay you do not have to soak. Leave it dry. It will work.

  10. Hi, Michelle & Lori! I wanted to ask you which size and model is your Vitamix blender. I just got a blender but I’d like to get a Vitamix PRO 750 one day and I’m thinking that maybe it’s too big – it comes with a 64-oz container and a 32-oz dry container. Do you need something that big to make your recipes?

    Posted on May 23, 2016 at 2:19 pm
    1. this is the Vitamix blender we have and use for just about all our recipes

      Posted on May 25, 2016 at 1:46 am
      1. Thank you! Good to know that I don’t need one as big as the PRO, especially because I’ll save a lot of money if I get a smaller size. Vitamix blenders are really expensive 😪
