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!

To enter the giveaway, I’m trying something new to make entering easier for you. See all the instructions below. Thanks for entering and sharing with your friends. Best of luck! Oh.. and see below the Rafflecopter giveaway info for instructions on how to easily make your own butter with Blendtec!

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!

  1. I would probably make almond butter, then cashew butter, then on to peanut butter. Our local grocery has a ‘make your own nut butter’ station, but it seems a little untidy and I’m a stickler for tidy. Would love to be able to make my own at home.

  2. I would make Raspberry Margarita!

  3. I would love to try and make my own nut butters. The kids would really like it, too!

  4. First? Maybe margaritas! Or a green smoothie. It looks like too much fun to use.

  5. Definitely HAVE to start with margaritas but homemade butter (?!) that’s impressive.

  6. I’d like to use this blender to puree soup.

  7. I’d make milkshakes.

  8. I’d make fresh pear sorbet or ice cream!

  9. I have been finding all kinds of butter recipes and I’m pretty sure that this would help out in making all of them!

  10. I have never made homemade butter – it sounds so good and easy too! I love when they serve flavored butters in restaurants so I would love to try them at home

  11. I would use the Twister jar to make almond butter. So glad you love your Blendtec!

  12. I’d try your homemade butter recipe.

  13. I have made homemade butter (the old fashioned way by churning) all throughout my childhood, but this blender makes it a snap. The possibilities of this blender are endless. I think would inaugurate it with margaritas then work on sauces, masalas, and chutneys.

  14. Made butter once in Vacation Bible School would love to make it for real. Thanks for providing us with this opportunity.

  15. I would make 1 million smoothies!!!

  16. I’d make blueberry smoothies first.

  17. Hope Williams says:

    I would make butter of course :)

  18. Stephanie Phelps says:

    I would make smoothies but doing butter sounds so good. I will Definitelybe doing that as well.

  19. Cashew Butter!

  20. ellie moccia says:

    I’d make my morning protein smoothies in it!
