I tried making almond butter for the first time with my Vitamix yesterday and it didn't go too well. :( Even after the 1/4 cup canola oil that the recipe book suggests, it was more like an almond paste. I went ahead and refrigerated it, but even then, the excess oil that the recipe said to pour off, never appeared. Could it be that my almonds weren't oily enough, or could the fact that I freeze my nuts been part of the issue? I did let the nuts thaw before I put them in the Vita. Or am I just expecting the kind of almond butter that the Vitamix can't do?
