Interwebs meet my kids favorite snack as of late. Whipped sunbutter.
This is a neat little trick we recently discovered, and I wanted to pop in real quick and share it here. I already did on instagram, but wanted to go into a bit more detail on how to do it.
The basic explanation though is if you whip slowly whip 3 parts liquid (including some liquid sweetener) into 2 parts creamy nut and seed butters it whips up into a creamy and airy treat.
My kids eat it straight (I personally am not a fan as we use stevia to sweeten which I don’t enjoy, but they love it) or topped with cacao nibs. It would also be good with bananas and apples. I foresee it accompanying a lot of fruit-y breakfasts in the future!

- ¼ cup of creamy nut or seed butter (make sure it is very pure, just nut/seeds and even unsalted or low salt if possible so it won't end up too salty). We use sunbutter.
- Up to 6 tablespoons water
- Sweetener (such as honey, maple syrup, or powdered sucanat) to taste
- ½ teaspoon powdered vanilla (what we use) or vanilla extract
- a pinch of salt if using unsalted nut/seed butter
- Put the sunbutter in the bowl of an stand mixer, or just a bowl if you use a hand electric mixer.
- Whisk in sweetener to taste. We use stevia as that is why my kids can have, but I am not a fan so recommend doing maple syrup or honey. I think about 1 tablespoon should be more then enough.
- If you used a full tablespoon of honey/maple syrup decrease the water down to ⅓ cup.
- Next run the mixer while adding the water a little at a time. The photo above shows what it looks like with each added tablespoon of water so you can have an idea of what to expect.
- Add the vanilla, and salt if using.
- See below for serving options.
