Making Homemade Butter with the Blendtec Blender {Blendtec Giveaway!!}

So, ya’ know, I was just sitting at home this morning and decided to make homemade butter. No big deal.

For some of you making homemade butter may not be a big deal, but to me? Homemade butter = big deal.

I had no idea how easy butter was to make. Heavy whipping cream and if you desire, a dash of salt, an awesome Blendtec Blender and voila – butter!

The Blendtec Total Blender Classic Wildside blender is one powerful machine. It can handle the soft (but still very cool) jobs, like butter, but it can also tackle more strenuous jobs like ice crushing and fruit smoothie making. Milkshakes, salad dressings, nut butters and more… this machine is honestly more than I ever imagined I could get from a blender. It does it all so effortlessly, just like making butter.

My friends at Blendtec have offered to give away one Blendtec Total Classic Wildside Blender (ARV $454.95) plus Twister Jar (ARV $119) to one lucky Dine & Dish reader. I’m so excited to share this giveaway with you all because it is truly an incredible appliance. I know you’ll love it!

Homemade Butter

Homemade Butter

Making homemade butter is so simple. This recipe, with instructions adapted from the Blendtec website proves just how simple it can be!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, brought to room temperature
  • 1 pinch Kosher salt

Instructions

  1. Add whipping cream to blender jar and secure lid.
  2. Turn blender on to speed 2 and run cycle for 45 seconds, then press "Pulse" to stop.
  3. Using a spatula, move whipped cream towards center of jar and secure lid. Press "Pulse" and hold down, 2-3 seconds, until whipped cream has stopped blending. Using a spatula, move contents towards center of jar. Repeat this step of pulsing, stirring and securing lid 10-12 times.
  4. Once buttermilk begins to separate from butter curds, press "Pulse" for 2-3 seconds until solid butter curds separate from buttermilk.
  5. Power blender off, remove lid and place a piece of cheesecloth over the lid. Over a bowl, slowly turn the blender jar over and allow liquid (buttermilk) to move through the cheesecloth into the bowl.
  6. Once the liquid is removed, scoop the butter from the cheesecloth and place in a mason jar or plastic container. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  7. Note: You can also save the buttermilk for future use as well!

    No bake nutella cheesecakes!! They are so yummy….

  2. The first thing I’d make would be a smoothie (though, the fresh butter for some baking sounds awesome!)

  3. When I was younger I went to an activity where we made homemade butter the old fashioned way… or an old fashioned way. We were each given a jar with whipping cream in it and we rolled it, shook it, etc for a while until we actually got butter. I think that is why I’m astounded that people don’t know that butter comes from cream – after all I made some when I was about 10!

  4. I just got my Blendtec last week and butter was the first thing I wrote on my list. I can’t wait to make it. Love it already!

  5. I would have to break my Blendtec in with a smoothie! Hope, hope!

  6. I would make either some kind of smoothie (been wanting to try one with kale) or something with the freshly pureed pumpkin I hope to have in a week or so.

  7. I would whip up some creamy cauliflower soup. Now that fall is almost here i’ve been craving soups.

  8. This first thing I would make is this butter- imagine being able to have your own butter and buttermilk whenver you needed it!

  9. I don’t currently have a blender so I the first thing I would make would be a smoothie! I am always saving smoothie recipes for whenever I finally get a blender.

  10. Niki Farbotko says:

    I would make milkshakes for my girls!

  11. Wow, never knew butter was this easy to make! Thanks!

  12. I’d love this awesome blender to mash up apples for homemade applesauce and to make pumpkin puree for some yummy fall recipes!

  13. I would make almond butter. Nummy!

  14. I would love to make smoothies and my own peanut butter! YUMMY

  15. A smoothie! The blender we have can barely handle that, believe it or not.

  16. Brenda Auen says:

    I would make a surprise custard pie!

  17. I would make a green smoothie!

  18. smoothies would be the first thing I would make…

  19. I’d love to make good green smoothies…my blender just doesn’t quite cut it. I’m honestly a little infatuated with these blenders, but I have not been able to justify the expense. I would LOVE to win one!

    This is so sijple I cant wait to try it, who knew!

  1. [...] Pumpkin is definitley a fall flavor, right? Ice cream, probably more of a summer treat (although my husband would argue this point). Merging the two seasons into a treat appropriate for the Tweason, I decided to use my new Blendtec Blender to whip up a Pumpkin Spice Milkshake.
