Low Fat Recipe
This Better Butter recipe does contain saturated fat from the butter, but can be a good alternative for those of you who do not want to use a processed spread. This keeps well in the refrigerator and spreads easily even when cold! It liquifies if left at room temperature, but will solidify when refrigerated. The olive oil consists of "good" fats.
1 cup butter at room temperature
1 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons skim milk or reconstituted dry milk (optional)
1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Pour into containers and store in the refrigerator.
Yields a little more than 2 full cups.
