  2. Add first 7 ingredients to your blender (do not add the oils at this point or else it won't chop up as well) and blend on high until it is a thick puree with no lumps.  Scrape down sides after 1 minute and then continue to puree.  My blender took approx 4 minutes to achieve the right consistency.
