Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups raw or roasted cashews
  • 1 1/2 cups raw or roasted macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 tsp salt (unless your nuts are already salted)
  • 1 tbsp sweetener (such as maple syrup or honey (optional - I omit most of the time))

Instructions

  • In a high powdered food processor (or Vitamix), combine cashews and macadamia nuts. Blend until you get a fairly thin liquid. You may need to scrape down the sides of the food processor occasionally. Mix in salt and sweetener, if using.
  • Store in a mason jar or other air tight container in the refrigerator.

Notes

*I used my Vitamix for this recipe and it easily took under 3 minutes to blend until I achieved a nice, thin consistency. If using a high powered food processor, it may take upwards of 25 minutes. Make sure to give your food processor a break every once in awhile so you don't burn it out. It will come together eventually, I promise!
**I don't like overly sweet things, so I do not sweeten my nut butter. You may sweeten yours depending on your tastes. I think about one tablespoon should do the trick!
