Spreadable Butter … make your own

Just sharing a sweet money-saving tip … no sugar involved …

Have you ever bought spreadable butter … the kind that is usually a butter and canola oil blend?

I have looked at spreadable butter … but never purchased it.

The prices that I have seen are usually $2.50 – $3.00 for an eight ounce package … I’m cheap πŸ˜‰

A friend told me how to make my own for a lot less money … thank you, Gwen πŸ™‚

All you need is butter and canola oil … what could be easier?

This is all you need …

  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) – softened
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • A container to hold the finished product (a little larger than 1 cup)

First, whip the butter … I usually use my hand-held mixer …

Next, add the canola oil …

And beat until smooth …

Pour into your container and store in the refrigerator …

You now have spreadable butter … straight out of the fridge.Β  We use this spread as a substitute for butter on bread and some cooking … you get the taste of butter and less saturated fat.

I have not used it in place of butter for baking yet … have you?Β  I’m interested in feedback!

I β™₯ your comments!
