Well, I thought it’d be high time to share a homemade cashew butter recipe since… *spoiler alert* a super special, cashew butter-centric recipe is coming out on Thursday. Hint: ICE CREAM!!
You ready? Let’s MAKE THIS. Be sure to leave a comment below if you try my homemade cashew butter recipe! It truly makes my day to hear from you. Without further ado, let’s do this!
Best Homemade Cashew Butter Recipe – the Taste!
There is nothing quite like making your very own homemade cashew butter. It’s oddly satisfying and oh-so rewarding. The flavor of homemade cashew butter is extra nutty, perfectly creamy, and super fresh. What’s not to like?
How to Make Homemade Cashew Butter
Learn how to make homemade cashew butter in just a few easy steps! I’ve included extra photos & closeup shots of the process for making cashew butter easier. 🙂
Step 1: Add Whole Cashews to the Food Processor.
Add your whole, roasted cashews to a sturdy food processor. This is the food processor that I use to blend everything—including homemade cashew butter!
Step 2: Blend Cashews until Crumbly.
Blend the cashews until you get a coarse, dry, crumbly cashew meal.
Step 3: Moist Cashew Meal: Cashew Oil Starts Releasing
Remember to periodically scrape down the sides of your food processor. Making homemade cashew butter can be a bit taxing on your food processor, so make sure to take breaks. In the photo below, oils are releasing from the cashews, turning the previously dry cashew meal moist.
Step 4: Cashew “Dough”
Much of the cashew oil has released from your cashews, causing a cashew “dough ball” to form. You’re so close to making homemade cashew butter!
Step 5: Thick Almost-Cashew Butter
Here, the cashew dough has turned into a very, very thick kind of cashew butter. But it’s still not ready. Keep going! Blend until you reach a smooth, liquidy cashew butter consistency that you’ll see in the next photo (Step 6).
Step 6: Your homemade cashew butter is ready!
Et voilà! You just learned how to make homemade cashew butter. Woot woot! Your homemade cashew butter should be liquidy, mostly smooth, and simply delicious.

Storing the Homemade Cashew Butter
This homemade cashew butter recipe can be easily stored for up to 6 months. To store at room temperature: keep your homemade cashew butter out of direct sunlight & away from heat sources in an airtight container for 2-3 months. To store in the refrigerator: use the same container for your cashew butter—but this time, you can keep the cashew butter for 3-6 months. Woohoo!
Any fellow Homemade Heroes out there? I think we should plan a meetup—exchange jars of homemade nut butters, maybe swap some homemade cards, maybe even swap tips on how to make homemade even more awesome. 🙂 (You can totally feel me grinning from here, can’t you?) It’s simply my life’s joy & passion to share in these kitchen adventures with you. What would I do without you? ‘Til the next adventure…
Sending you all my love and maybe even a dove, xo Demeter ❤️
