    40 seconds I have been at it for an hour and the blender overloads and binds. I scrape and re-scrape. My new from costco four sided blendtec jar is supposed to be able to do this, "Yes, you can. You may have to double the recipe, and you will need to stop and scrape the sides to get it thick." Disappointed at this point

    I have been working on this recipe for a hour. 2.5 cups of roasted almonds, 4 tbls of cocoa, a little salt and three pureed dates. At first I got an overload message so I took some of the stuff out. I then got another over load message, scraped the sides of my new from costco four sided jar 3hp blendtec blender. Ink the concoction was being pulled down and impacting under the blades and causing it to bind. At point it is not binding nor is it blending everything together. Blend for 6 seconds stop and scrape. blend for 6 seconds stop and scrape. I have followed your instruction "Yes, you can. You may have to double the recipe, and you will need to stop and scrape the sides to get it thick." The concoction is hot.

    Did this for three cycles in my 570 on "high" with my new twister jar. All I have is a thick, chocolatey paste. Any suggestions on what to do? I bought this jar to make almond butter, specifically.

    I agree, having the exact same problem. I tried doubling the recipe and it stops because it’s overloaded according to the panel.
    There goes 2.5 cups of almonds. So disappointed :(
