Easy vegan butter + grape jam

Dips & spreads

vegan butter

It’s too easy to make vegan butter.

All you need is a plant based milk, a non fragrant vegetable oil, coconut oil, lemon and salt.

All you do is blend, freeze, and enjoy!

I can’t believe I’m just learning about this now.

And I can’t get over how it melts… It really looks like the real thing!

Also, I attempted to make grape jam today. The photo above is the jam before I allowed it to cool and set in the fridge; I couldn’t wait to try it!

It didn’t set like the strawberry jam did immediately, as expected, but after a couple of hours in the fridge…

I now have beautiful purple grape jam with chia seeds!

It’s ready to be enjoyed on some Ezekiel toast paired with freshly made vegan butter.

*** my vegan butter keeps separating when I put it back in the fridge, maybe this is what those soy lecithin granules are for but I don’t have those so all I did was mix it all up again and it actually made the butter more creamy and almost whipped-like!
