The Vita-Mix and other high powered blenders and juicers are not the only appliances you can use to make fresh raw almond butter.
I have found the Magic Bullet to work quite nicely. I use this personal blender when I am blending small amounts of food. You can make a small amount of nut butter and store the butter in the same container. This will definitely cut down on your clean-up time.
All you need is the Magic Bullet or something comparable to the Magic Bullet, almonds, oil, and a sweetener (optional). You will have yourself a delicious almond nut butter whipped up in no time.
