Millet Butter (Healthy Buttery Spread)



Yield 1 1/2 cups

This healthier buttery spread actually gives you some fiber (other butter spreads have ZERO fiber) and offers a healthy dose of thiamine, niacin, and magnesium.



  1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until very smooth. (I use a high-powered blender to make this recipe. Other blenders have a hard time getting it super smooth.)
  2. Pour into container and chill.


1. Keeps in refrigerator for about 5 days. I tried freezing this, and it changed the texture too much. (It was still edible - but barely). Since dividing the recipe in half doesn't work well (not enough in the blender to blend smooth), if 1 1/2 cups of butter is too much for you to eat in 5 days (like it was for me), consider sharing some. :)

2. I cook my millet in a crockpot (as described in this post) for 6 to 7 hours on low using 3/4 cup of millet and 3 cups (scant) of water. I like my millet to have a thick consistency so that my butter isn’t thin.

3. If you would like your butter to have more of a yellow color, add 1 to 2 small slices of raw carrot to the blender.
