Healthier and more affordable than store bought!

Creating your own butter at home is not only simple but also better for your health and budget compared to purchasing it at the store. With only one ingredient, cream, you can quickly make fresh and tasty butter. Let’s see how to make your own butter in a healthy way and why it’s a great idea for your kitchen.

Why make your own butter at home?
Better choice: When you make butter yourself, you decide what ingredients to use. You can pick cream that is organic or from grass-fed cows, making sure it doesn’t have any extra ingredients or chemicals.

Affordable: Making your own butter can cost less than buying it at the store, especially if you purchase cream in large quantities or when it is discounted.

Fresh and Delicious: Nothing compares to the flavor of fresh butter. It has a better taste than anything you can purchase at the store.


1 pint, which is equal to 2 cups, of heavy cream: It is best to choose organic or grass-fed for the healthiest choice.

A little bit of salt (if desired): To enhance the taste.

A stand mixer or a hand mixer: You can also use a blender or a glass jar if you want to put in some effort!


Pour the heavy cream into the bowl of your stand mixer or a large mixing bowl if using a hand mixer.

Beat the cream: Set the mixer to medium-high. The cream will become whipped cream first. Keep beating the cream until it separates into butter and buttermilk. This task usually lasts 5 to 10 minutes.

Divide the butter from the buttermilk. After the butter and buttermilk have separated, remove the buttermilk (you can use it for baking or cooking!).

Wash the butter: To get rid of any leftover buttermilk, rinse the butter with cold water. Use a spatula or your hands to press the butter and remove as much liquid as you can. This is a very important step to make your butter last longer.

Season and Preserve: If desired, sprinkle a little salt on your butter and mix thoroughly. Put the butter in a new container or shape it using parchment paper. Keep in the fridge.

Advice for the best outcomes

Choose a good cream. The higher quality the cream, the better the butter will be. Cream from organic or grass-fed sources has the most delicious taste and is the healthiest option.

Room temperature cream: Allow your cream to warm up a bit before using it. This speeds up the process of making butter.

Enhance the taste: To make your butter more delicious, you can add herbs, garlic, or honey for a gourmet twist.
