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’d make almond butter. I’ve always wanted a blender that could do some serious blending!

  2. I’ve been making my own bread almost exclusively for the last few months. I’d use it to grind wheat into whole wheat flour.

  3. you meanI dont have to churn it ??? Now I really want one of these !

  4. I would make a mudslide!

  5. OOO!! I didn’t even know what a Blendtec was until a few days ago. We made our first green smoothie this morning and loved it! It would be the perfect birthday gift;).

  6. I would love to have a Blendtec blender that would chop ice without freezing!

  7. Hummus with pure chickpeas, olive oil and spices for a healthy veggie dip for celery, carrots, crackers and pitas! Thank you so much as I don’t currently own a blender! Would definitely put this red cute Blendtec to work! LOL!

  8. I would totally make butter!!

  9. I would love to make almond butter! .. or a green smoothie with more veggies(my blender can’t handle much).

  10. Ohh…probably some pumpkin puree to freeze for baking……or a smoothie!

  11. Wow.. that butter looks amazing. I think I’d have to try that and a perfectly smooth smoothie, then see how it does making flour. What a cool machine! winterwrens at gmail dot com

  12. Valerie Stachowiak says:

    Probably homemade butter!!!! Then homemade mayo.

  13. I would love to make a yummy green smoothie! Thank you for the Giveaway!

  14. Charlsey Gibson says:

    If I won this blender, the first thing I would make is margaritas! My brother and I have tried several different blenders to get our margaritas the right consistency (you know, like the amazing ones at Mexican restaurants?!? :) ). I’m pretty sure this blender would work miracles :)

  15. I’d love to try and make butter in that wonderful blender. Oh and so much more!

  16. This would be a wonderful gift as I don’t have a blender.

  17. I forgot to mention that I would make taramosalata (Greek roe dip).

  18. I would probably make powdered sugar. I can’t have cornstarch and it’s so expensive to buy the gluten-free stuff. I read on the Blendtec site you can make powdered sugar with just regular sugar, so I’d try that.

  19. Stacey Roberson says:

    If I won, I would first make a banana and strawberry smoothie. Yummy!

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  20. I’m licking the screen…. is that gross? :) Luvs me some butter!
