Prep Time15 mins
Total Time25 mins
Servings: 17 Tablespoons
- 12 oz Macadamia nuts raw
- 1 pinch Salt
Place macadamia nuts and salt in food processor and blend on medium speed. The nuts will break down into small pieces before becoming sticky, scrape down the sides of the bowl every few minutes to ensure you get an even texture.
Depending on how powerful your food processor is you may need to take a 2-5 minutes break for every 5 minutes of processing - especially if the processor is becoming hot.
Continue to process until the macadamia nuts have turned into a creamy paste. The more you blend, the smoother it will be.
