What You’ll Need To Know

Add ingredients to a high-speed blender or food processor. Process until smooth, stopping at regular intervals to make sure the pumpkins seed butter doesn't overheat.

I used a Vita Mix and left it as setting 1, gradually increasing it to setting 2. I also used a spatula to move the sides in.
