I have always wanted to make my own peanut butter, but I assumed it was complicated and probably required equipment that I didn’t have. So I was super intrigued by this Pin, which advertised a homemade peanut butter with ONE ingredient in under five minutes!
Thoughts: Everything she said in her blog post… it’s true! I didn’t need to add any oil, and the peanut butter was SO delicious (certainly MUCH better than the “natural” peanut butters that the store carries, and a more robust, delicious, peanut-ty flavor than your standard peanut butters). And with my Ninja®, this didn’t even take 5 minutes… It took less than TWO! In fact, my peanut butter was done before my bread was even toasted! For me, $7 worth of peanuts yielded 20 oz of peanut butter, which is more expensive than standard peanut butters, but a similar price to natural peanut butters. It is safe to say that I will NOT be buying natural peanut butter from the store anymore. In fact, I don’t even know what to do with the remnants of the jar that I have now!
Final verdict: Seriously, make this. Right now. Unless you are allergic to peanuts. And if you are, I bet it would work with most other types of nuts! Try almonds or cashews, for instance, and let us know if it works!
Each lemonade was scored on a scale of 1-10 (where 1= that’s food? and 10= the best lemonade that has ever entered my mouth) for overall score, the boyfriend/husband test, and the leftover test. We also provide other comments.
Old Fashioned Lemonade from Betty Crocker
Overall score: 8.5
The boyfriend/husband test: 8
The leftover test: 8.5
Comments: This was really easy to make: Just water, lemons, and sugar! It tasted very good and fresh. This recipe is made to be adaptable to different tastes, so next time I would add more sugar to make it sweeter.
Allrecipes Brazilian Lemonade
Overall score: 2
The boyfriend/husband test: 1
The leftover test: 1
Comments: Sadly, this was horrible. It did not nearly live up to its expectations. The flavors at first glance seemingly would go really well together but they just didn’t. Unfortunately this recipe is sooo sweet it tastes like liquid candy. I like the idea behind it though and will try to adapt it so I can enjoy it for once in the future.
Raspberry Lemonade from Betty Crocker
Overall score: 9.5
The boyfriend/husband test: 8
The leftover test: 9.5
Comments: My husband doesn’t really drink lemonade, which is why his score is a little low. I really liked this! It was very easy to make. I thought it was a nice change from a typical lemonade and I would definitely make this again!
While we can’t guarantee the results, here are some ideas you can use to customize the winning lemonade to your dietary needs:
Vegetarian: It already is!
Vegan: It already is!
Lower fat: It is already low in fat.
Lower sugar/calories: You could cut the sugar down a bit but it may change the taste. Just be mindful! Also consider substituting some of the sugar for a sugar substitute such as Splenda® (see conversion info here), Stevia (see conversion info here), or xylitol (measures 1:1 for sugar). Some people do not like how these taste, though, so proceed with caution!
