How to make spreadable butter

Stores charge more for their spreadable butter than regular butter, and you actually get less butter for the increased cost. Make your own and save.  Turn one cup of butter into two cups of spreadable butter!

Home Made Spreadable Butter Recipe:

  • 2 sticks of butter,  soften to room temperature.
  • Using an electric mixer, mix 1/2 cup water, room temperature into the butter.
  • Slowly mix in 1/2 cup of canola oil (or use 1/4 cup canola and 1/4 cup olive oil).
  • Store butter mix into a plastic container with a lid and refrigerate.

That’s it!  Now you know how to make spreadable butter easily!

This butter is spreadable right from the refrigerator.  Use for a spread or on veggies & pasta. Because of the added water, it is not recommended to heat or cook with the spreadable butter.


I Reuse Butter Wrappers

Kitchen Tip:  I reuse butter wrappers.  Seriously, doesn’t that sound like a confession!  🙂

One of my favorite things is to find a new way to save money, be frugal or repurpose an item.     Years ago I stopped buying cooking spray because I found a new way to grease my baking pans.  Take your butter wrappers and rub them on the inside of your pans.

As I have new butter wrappers I pop it into a zip top bag and put the bag in the freezer. When it’s time to butter a dish or I am making my homemade light wheat bread recipe recipe, I pull the wrappers out and use them.
