Have had my vitamix for years, don't use it much because it is so hard to get things out. I am far from a good cook, and I am old, just trying to help my body a little.

I usually scrape out as much as I can with a spatula or spoon, then make a smoothie in it to "clean" the rest of the nut butter out. It cleans up the rest of the nut butter pretty easily (I put 1/2 frozen banana, some frozen berries, spinach, and some coconut or almond milk in and blitz until it is all incorporated).

I have a Ninja Pro, not a Vitamix, but it heats up the nut butter a lot from the friction, so I can pour most of it out. Then I get a spatula (excuse me, my 7th grade home ec teacher said the proper name is "rubber scraper") and scrape out all I can. But I LOVE Difwiz's suggestion to make a smoothie to catch up all the remaining nut butter. Brilliant!
