vegan raw butter homemade

We’re so excited, and we just can’t hide it.

(Hence the jazz hands.)

Because – vegan butter. Can you believe it?

It’s as creamy, salty, and versatile as its non-vegan counterpart, only without the heart attack. Huzzah!

What’s more, this one’s homemade, easy to make, and contains only whole and healthy ingredients.

Now, maybe the concept of vegan butter is old hat to you. It’s true that you can find non-dairy butters in the shops pretty easily these days. But the thing is, they’re usually chock full of soy lecithin, emulsifiers, fillers, palm oil or carrageenan. Or all of the above.

And let’s not even mention that non-food known as margarine. *Shudder*

No such nasties in this divine recipe. As you’ll see, it’s made of only the purest and most health-giving ingredients. It provides your body with good fats, plus it’s easily digestible, even if you do go a little overboard (which may happen if you’ve got some tasty and toasty bread to pair it with).

 

The Genius Behind the Butter: Oona Bee Crudivine

May we introduce you to the delightful Oona Bee.

She’s a raw vegan pioneer and purveyor of healthy vegan cheeses. Her line of nut cheeses, Les Crudivins, has got all of veggie Paris salivating. Everybody is gleefully waiting for the moment when her creations become available in organic shops. For now, Ann and I have taken to stalking her at all the vegan festivals, hoping for tasting sessions. 🙂

Today, Oona the non-dairy queen shares her coveted butter recipe. We tried it at VeggieWorld a few months ago and went absolutely mental for it. We decided we just had to share this game-changing recipe with our dear readers, and were thrilled that Oona was up for it.
