How to make Almond Butter - 5 minute recipe

Make your own almond butter in blender

The prices for almond butter significantly increased again - especially 250g portions have become more expensive. If you have a high-speed blender at home, this does not have to bother you - you can make your own almond butter. This is not only interesting in terms of price, but also in terms of taste: fresh almond paste is simply delicious - as a spread, e. G. in combination with a little honey, as a fruit dip for apples and pears, to refine desserts and mueslis - or simply spooned. In addition, almond butter scores with a lot of magnesium (good against stress!), vegetable protein (good for vegetarians and vegans!) as well as lots of B vitamins (good for the nerves!).

Almond butter recipe for the blender

Contrary to many DIY almond butter instructions on the internet, preparing it with a high-speed blender (in this case, the Bianco Primo Plus) requires no other additions like water or oil. Our trick: Roast the almonds in the oven before blending.
Roasting the nuts ensures that the nut's own oil is released during the following processing in the blender. The nuts quickly reach a creamy, smooth consistency - absolutely comparable to store-bought almond butter. In addition, the roasted flavors go well with the almond butter. We deliberately decided against the raw version - for culinary reasons, we didn't get good almond butter results with raw nuts in the blender - certainly not without adding extra oil! This definitely is a compromise, as nutrients are lost when the almonds are roasted.

  • 500 g almonds (unpeeled) We recommend that you do not process more than 500 g almonds. More almonds can only be process into almond flour.
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees at top/bottom heat for about 5 minutes. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and roast for about 5-7 minutes. Since every oven is different, we recommend that you keep checking the almonds, as they can burn quite quickly. The creaminess of the almond paste is related to the roasting time. If almonds are roasted too long, too much oil evaporates and the almond paste no longer has the liquid-creamy consistency (as in the pictures in this post), but rather resembles a solid spread. Now remove the tray from the oven and let the almonds cool down a bit.
  2. Below you will find the blending times and the resting times for the blender between the individual blending runs. Please observe these, otherwise the mixture will heat up too much and may damage the container.
  3. We are often asked whether you can prepare almond paste in the Bianco Primo, we therefore show the preparation in this high-speed blender. We put all the almonds and a pinch of salt and cinnamon in the container and puree the nuts on the lowest speed level for about 1 minute until a nut flour is formed. Pause and use the tamper to push the nut mixture down from the inside walls of the container.
  4. In the next blending run, start at lowest speed for about 30 seconds and slowly turn up to maximum - continue blending for about 1.5 minutes. The almond flour will now change to a mushy mass as the oil begins to escape. If necessary, press the nut mass down with the tamper while blending (with the lid closed, of course). Again, take a short break for about 30 seconds.
  5. Repeat the previous blending step under point 3. After another 2 minutes of blending, you will have a silky smooth nut puree. The entire preparation takes about 5 minutes.
  6. Afterwards, it is best to fill the almond puree into sterilized canning jars. This way it will keep for weeks. To do this, rinse the jar and lid with boiling water and then dry upside down on a clean kitchen towel.

Conclusion: Better make your own almond butter!

A high-speed blender is already an ingenious kitchen appliance. In the past, we would not have thought that we could make delicious almond butter ourselves. Therefore, our clear recommendation, if you have a high-speed blender at home: Instead of buying almond butter, prepare your own - it's cheaper and you know what's in it. Feel free to try the almond paste recipe with other nuts such as hazelnuts or cashews - or prepare nut butter mixtures or even chocolate variants. But even with other nuts, it is important that they are roasted before processing!

Have you ever made your own almond paste in a blender?

We appreciate your Feedback here!

I fell in love with the first sip. In 2010 a friend of mine served me my first green smoothie. Since then, green smoothies are my absolute favorite breakfast. Quickly prepared, I start my day healthy, delicious and well nourished. I carry the feeling of this delicious healthy breakfast with me all day long - all the way through to the evening.
Nice side effect: Without renunciation or nutritional dogma, green smoothies regulate my desire for coffee, chocolate and all the other temptations.

Hello Carla,
Did work out in the end with a little more cooling time in between.
Great recipe!
Best regards
Carla von Grü
Hello Holger,

super - I am very pleased!!!
Much joy and pleasure with your homemade almond butter!
Hi Carla,
Does the recipe also work with the Thermomix?
It seems he comes there to its limits, becomes very warm.
Carla von Grü
Hello Holger,

I' m afraid I can't tell you - I've only ever made almond butter with a high-speed blender.

Kind regards,
Is the temperature 150°F or 150°C to roast the almonds?
Carla von Grü
Hi Gregor,

the temperature specification is 150 degrees - so not Fahrenheit.

Many greetings,
Hi there, I have the Bianco Volto. Would like to try the almond butter recipe. With which blender that came with it at the time, the long narrow or the wide short, would be suitable for nut puree?
Dear thanks and a nice Sunday
Carla von Grü
Hello Anja,

You can use both containers to make almond butter. The difference lies in the minimum preparation quantity: With the premium container (the narrow one), you can make almond butter from a quantity of 400 ml. With the more compact, wider container, it starts at about 700 ml.

Many greetings,
Carla von Grü

Hello, I have not yet made almond butter myself, I always buy the puree of Betty Butter and make the almond milk from it. Unfortunately, I never really know how much almond puree I need for a liter of almond milk. Do you have a tip ???? Your website is great, and I have already tried many recipes. Many thanks to you
Carla von Grü
Dear Brigitte

i have to pass. We always make our almond milk fresh from almonds in the blender. As a tip: I would simply take as much mush as it needs for a good tasting almond milk for your taste :)

Love, Carla

I don't have almond paste, but I do have a large portion of delicious smelling almond flour?
Muse from roasted nuts / almonds work great. Today I blanched and roasted almonds to get white mush. It just did not turn mushy. When I topped up the amount (300gr) with the same amount of unshelled almonds, it was no longer a problem. I have the Vitamix A3500.
Carla von Grü
Hello Sandra,
thank you for your almond paste feedback. We are delighted to hear that the Vitamix A3500i gives you so much pleasure.
Love, Carla
Does anyone know? i got almond paste as a gift. in a recipe of mine it says to process 200g almonds into paste etc..
how much ready-made mus do I have to take so that I have the 200g almonds? 1:1 is somehow too much? is it about 4 tablespoons?
Have I understood correctly? Do you want to prepare whole almonds from almond paste? That sounds interesting, and I'm curious about the result. But yes, to make 200 grams of almonds, you need 200 grams of almond paste! Please let us know about the result!
Kind regards
Carla von Grü
Sorry, I can't tell you exactly either. Our almond paste recipe yields about 500 g almond paste from approx. to 500 g almonds.
LG, Carla
I regularly make almond paste with my Bianco Puro + Premium container. (for 4 years)
Always succeeds very well. (both with roasted and unroasted almonds)
However, you need some practice.
I never follow a “cooking manual” for nut purée.
There are only a few important tips:
1. The speed must never be so fast that the blades run dry (otherwise the appliance will quickly get hot) – reduce the speed.
2. Speed must never be too slow that you have the feeling that the knives get stuck — Increase speed.
3. nothing works without a tamper! Always push nuts towards the blades.
4. if the paste becomes too hot and the container begins to mist up, wait a little and loosen the paste with a spatula. If necessary, dry the inside of the container with a kitchen towel.
I always use 200-400 g of almonds (depending on requirements)
The preparation takes about 15 minutes (sometimes more, sometimes less – depends on the almonds).

The standard container of the Vitamix Pro 750 does not allow such low preparation quantities, you need the 1.4 l container.
In my opinion, the standard container is ideal for nut purée. My attempt with the Square, failed miserably!

My second favorite besides almond paste is hazelnut paste
200 g hazelnuts + 50g 99% chocolate and 3 dates ........ hmmmmmmm

Dear Astrid,
thank you for your valuable advice on the preparation of almond purée in Bianco Puro. As you mentioned, preparation always depends on the almond quality and texture. I have also made this experience ;)
Thanks also for the hazelnut jam recipe – sounds very tempting!
Love greeting, Carla
Hello Hello,
I'm totally into almond paste right now and would love to prepare it myself. I have the Square container and the Premium container. Do you have any special recipe recommendations, and witch container should I use?
Carla von Grü
Hello Ricarda,
in any case, I would recommend the preparation in the Premium container. You can use it to prepare smaller quantities of viscous preparations, such as nut puree. This way you can slowly get used to the preparation. The Square container is great for green smoothies and for grinding grains or coffee or cocoa beans.
Love, Carla
Hello Carla and Svenja!
Thank you so much for your great recipes. I am getting into the swing of things with your Vitamix…. One question: my son loves coconut almond purée. Do you have any idea how I can get coconut into your almond purée????
Best regards
Carla von Grü
Dear Claudia,
perhaps you could blend in coconut flakes into the almost finished almond paste. Love, Carla
