If you like nut butters like almond butter, peanut butter, cashew nut butter, etc., you’ll love coconut butter! And, it’s so much easier to make!! Not only can you use it as a spread, but you can also cook with it! Check out today’s video below to see how to make fresh coconut butter and all the different ways you can use it.
Coconut Butter (makes 1/3 Cup)
2 Cups / 150 grams Dried Coconut (shreds or flakes)
1- Place dried coconut in a high speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth.*
2- Store coconut butter in a sealed glass container. Can be stored at room temperature. If store in a refrigerator, it will solidify.
* The coconut butter might collect on the sides of the blender or food processor, if so just scrape the sides of the device and continue blending. Depending on the amount of coconut butter you are making and what type of blender or food processor you are using, it can take from 2 to 15 minutes to blend smooth.
