*Servings 1 cup


  • 2 cups peanuts

  • Pinch of salt


  • First have to remove the shells. Then they are ready to roast.

  • Roast the peanuts in the oven at 160ºC (fan assisted) for 7-10 minutes. The longer you roast them, the deeper the color of the peanut butter.

  • As soon as the peanuts come out of the oven, carefully peel them. The skin should just come off easily when you scrunch them in your hands or with a towel. Then used a hairdryer to remove the skins ( although, be warned, this can be messy! )

  • Put the peanuts and a pinch of salt in the Nutramilk processor and blitz them until you obtain a smooth butter. The longer you blend it, the runnier the peanut butter becomes. Blend for between 2-3 minutes for the perfect consistency.

  • Store in a glass container.

Note *Having some skins in the mix will add an interesting flavour and create a lovely rich colour, so no need to panic about getting rid of every last bit!
