How to Make Homemade Pistachio Nut Butter 3 Ways

Last Update: September 27, 2022

How good can a two-ingredient recipe be? Incredibly good—when that recipe is for homemade pistachio butter. The mild and sweet flavor of roasted pistachios transforms into a gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and creamy butter after only 10 minutes of blitzing in the food processor. Keep it simple with our basic recipe, or try an enhanced version with vanilla or cacao. Whichever approach you take, spread this butter on warm scones or biscuits, swirl it into your favorite vanilla ice cream base, add a dollop to crepes, or serve a small jar alongside a cheese and charcuterie platter.

Homemade Pistachio Nut Butter

Yield: 2 cups
Active time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups roasted unsalted pistachios
½ teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

Place pistachios and salt in a food processor and blend on high for 5 to 7 minutes, scraping down the sides every minute or so. You’ll see the butter go from looking like chopped nuts, to becoming sticky, to forming a ball, and finally, becoming a smooth, spreadable butter.


Vanilla Pistachio Butter

Yield: 2 cups
Active time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups roasted unsalted pistachios
½ teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons Thrive Market Organic Maple Syrup
1 tablespoon liquid coconut oil
1 tablespoon Thrive Market Organic Vanilla Extract
1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise and seeds scraped out

Instructions

Place pistachios and salt in a food processor and blend on high for 5 to 7 minutes, scraping down the sides every minute or so. You’ll see the butter go from looking like chopped nuts, to being more sticky, to forming a ball, and finally, becoming a smooth, spreadable butter. Add remaining ingredients and blend an additional 3 to 4 minutes until fully combined.


Cacao Pistachio Butter

Yield: 2 cups
Active time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

2 cups roasted unsalted pistachios
½ teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons liquid coconut oil
3 tablespoons Thrive Market Organic Maple Syrup
2 tablespoons Thrive Market Regeneratively Grown Organic Cacao Powder
¼ teaspoon Thrive Market Organic Ground Cinnamon

Instructions

Place pistachios and salt in a food processor and blend on high for 5 to 7 minutes, scraping down the sides every minute or so. You’ll see the butter go from looking like chopped nuts, to being more sticky, to forming a ball, and finally, becoming a smooth, spreadable butter. Add remaining ingredients and blend an additional 3 to 4 minutes until fully combined.
