This is a good, inexpensive substitue for that more expensive ICBINB spread. It came from the April 1983 issue of Woman's Circle Home Cooking. I have made it several times, freezing any extra, with plastic wrap over the top, under the plastic lid, to prevent ice crystals from forming.

This is a good substitute. This was fast and easy to prepare. I used 1/4 cup canola oil. Love the creamy texture....and the flavour is very good. Thank you Graymare for sharing! I made this for the PAC Spring 2009.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. When margarine is very soft, place it in a food processor, with remaining ingredients and pulse to blend. Clean down sides with a rubber spatula, from time to time, as you stop the machine. When smoothly blended, pack into pint plastic containers and refrigerate. Freeze anything more than a pint. Keep refrigerated when not in use, as it will melt at room temperature!
