  2. With the machine running on high, slowly drizzle 1/4 cup of the avocado oil into the machine, which will loosen up the butter and process until smooth, 10-12 minutes, scraping down the sides of your food processor every couple of minutes. If you need more oil to loosen the butter, with your food processor on drizzle in the additional 1/4 cup of avocado oil.
