HOMEMADE VEGAN BUTTER {dairy free, gluten free, soy free, vegan}

I cannot explain my EXCITEMENT to share this vegan butter recipe!

Pre-vegan, I was a butter lover. I loved it on toast, sandwiches, crumpets, baked potatoes, scones, potato cakes.. you name it. So it’s been an aim of mine to re-create a vegan butter for a while now, and I’ve finally nailed it!
