Review Detail

I made this again today with a new combo. Homemade almond cream (1C soaked, blanched almonds); 2C water and 2 large Medjool dates.
I used the almond cream rather than soy milk plus 2 tsp Lemon Juice and used 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Oilive Oil (first press) rather than Canola, along with Sunflower Lecithin.
The almond cream was to allow enough protein to curdle. The lemon juice was because I don't tolerate vinegar and the Olive Oil was to add back the fruity tones plus it's not GM, like Canola. This one has the best flavor to date considering all the modifications. Hope it helps someone else.

That's so cool laurelvb! I've been wanting to make a homemade almond milk with a higher protein content for vegan butter experimentation but you beat me to it! The date and lemon addition is so innovative! I'm going to eventually break up the Vegan Butters into its own separate section so I can expand the genre more. That would be great if you could submit this as a recipe for the section. I'd love to showcase it if you have a picture! Get in touch with my via my profile if you're interested.
