    The easiest way to make it smooth without having to add extra oil, is to blend it once (using the Twister Jar), and put it in the fridge/freezer to fully cool down (it gets warm). Then blend it again. It will turn out nice and smooth. You can’t just blend it again while it’s warm, or it will cause the oil and the “nut meat” to permanently separate (it must cook it or something) and make a big, conglobulated mess.

    Can’t get mine to look as smooth as the one on the picture. Anyone any suggestions/ideas ?


  • DinaR

    can you use the 4-Side or Wildside jar for this?

    Much less expensive than store bought and delicious! I did have to blend a little longer than recommended and it was still a little grainy but very good flavor.

    I made this today; the first thing I made with my new machine. I tried it with graham crackers and also did the dipped frozen banana bites with it too. I love this stuff, so good!
