One of my favourite things to make in my Vitamix is sweet Pecan Butter. Paired with crunchy apple slices...it makes a perfect late-day snack!
I got the inspiration from a packet of Artisana Pecan Butter I picked up at my local health food store. This Pecan Butter is soooooo good and such a treat, but at $2.99 for a packet....ouch! (You can buy Artisana Pecan Butter packets for much cheaper here on iherb).
These packets are perfect to throw into your bag or work desk. You can also buy it by the jar. The good news is that pecan butter is so easy to make. If you buy your pecans in bulk (like at Costco) you can save A LOT of money.

Tip: You can also make this in a powerful food processor. It should take about 10+ minutes. Just keep scraping down the sides until smooth.
To use as a fruit dip, allow to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
