Butter | Vegan, Paleo, Keto, Cultured


hi everyone and welcome to my channel I
have gotten a lot of questions from you asking if there is a way you can make
vegan cultured butter and the answer is yes I will show you both a regular vegan
butter and cultured vegan butter and I’ll also share with you what I use the
butter for let’s jump right in the first thing you will need to do is culture
some time based milk I’m using homemade cashew milk but you can use any milk you
like just make sure that the milk is neutral in flavor and has low protein
content the reason I say a low protein content is that milks with high protein
content such as soy milk can easily curdle in combination with an acid to
culture the milk I’m using probiotics make sure all your kitchen tools that
come into contact with the milk are sterilized or at least washed with soap
and hot water so you don’t introduce any bad bacteria into the milk another
important thing is not using any metal utensils as metal can react with the
probiotics here I’m using a glass bowl and a wooden spoon I like to stir the
probiotics into just a tiny bit of milk first to create a thick mixture and then
add the rest of the milk this is because if you add the probiotics into the
entire amount of milk the probiotics just kind of float on top and don’t mix
properly with the milk let the milk culture on the kitchen
counter for a few hours or until it reaches the tang eNOS you like if you
prefer regular butter as opposed to cultured butter you can skip the
culturing when your milk is ready whether it’s cultured or not add it to a
blender together with some almond flour nutritional yeast salt and sunflower
lecithin the sunflower lecithin is optional but I like it because it
increases the nutritional value of the butter and it keeps all the ingredients
in emulsion I have tried this recipe without sunflower lecithin and it works
perfectly fine which is why I’m saying that it’s an optional ingredient also if
you’re not culturing the butter I would recommend adding a little bit of coconut
vinegar or apple cider vinegar to give the butter a little more complex flavor blend all the ingredients on high until
the mixture is completely smooth without any grainy bits the last ingredient is
oil I’m actually using two types of oil pure olive oil or avocado oil either is
fine just make sure you’re not using extra virgin olive oil if you want to
use olive oil and we find coconut oil the word refined is really important
here because if you use a virgin coconut oil your vegan butter will taste like
coconuts make sure you add a coconut oil last and don’t blend it too much I
talked about why the way you blend oils is important on my blog I will leave a
link to the article as well as the recipe in the description box below this
video pour the butter into a mold or a glass
container and put it in the fridge to solidify and that’s it vegan butter that not only
looks like butter but it also behaves like butter it’s solid at low
temperatures spreadable at room temperature and melts at high
temperatures I don’t actually eat a lot of butter like spread on a piece of
toast or a piece of bread however I cook and
bake with this butter a lot so I put it into mashed potatoes cornbread muffins
cakes frosting and Tana can never tell that it’s not real butter mmm I would
not know if this was an A B and these were different butters like a dairy
butter versus this I wouldn’t be able to tell the avocado oil that’s in there is
very satiating it creates that round warm expanding flavor on the palate and
that’s what exactly what I would look for in a normal dairy butter I would
want it to have that round satiating flavor and that’s has it more than
enough so if you have friends or family that they are not vegan and you’re
introducing them to different types of vegan dishes or substitutes this is
really convincing and I doubt that they would be able to tell difference I think
you should try it even if you’re watching this video and you’re not a
vegan I think you should try this this is really cool I think it tastes great
it’s maybe slightly lighter than dairy butter slightly very slightly lighter
than dairy butter it’s got more of a it doesn’t feel as heavy going down as well
so it’s really good alright so I hope you enjoyed this video if you did please
