SophiaRose; My guess the food processor is your problem. When you make an emulsion the trick is to add the oil very slowly while the blender is running. Otherwise, at least in the case of salad dressings it will "curdle" and not blend together. I'm not sure how this worked if gentlwolf added the oil all at once....but try the blender if you have one

Either "so thick my spoon could barely move" is hyperbole or something went wrong for me....

I did it in the FP, could that be it?

It is still pretty good but more like soup. I would also recommend using coconut oil if you aren't fond of the taste of flax.

I am really excited to explore more things like this...once I can get them to work. Thanks for happening upon this! (Any idea about where I went wrong?)

It got thick because you made an emulsion. You suspended tiny droplets of oil in the other medium, the juice. It's how you make mayonnaise. This is very clever of you:-)
