When I 1st heard of Coconut Butter I had no clue what it was. But it makes sense.. it’s like Peanut Butter, but with coconut. But this stuff is EXPENSIVE.. you can pay as much as $12 a jar and usually around $8, but there is no reason to pay that much. By making Homemade Coconut Butter you can cut the costs at least in half.
I have heard that some commercial brands are smoother than Homemade Coconut Butter but I have had Tropical Traditions’ and it was very similar to what I made at home. It is great for cooking with or in smoothies, you can also use it on crackers like a peanut butter.
Homemade Coconut Butter
Makes about 1 cup
8oz of shredded, unsweetened coconut (we like organic)
Place coconut into a food processor or vitamix. Process on high. The whole thing will take 5-10 minutes (I was fine with about 5 for cooking, for other purposes you might want it smoother). It will become very warm and soupy.
note: if you want to quicken the process just add a tablespoon or two of coconut oil to the coconut while you are processing.
Pour into a clean jar. It will solidify at room temperature.
And it last a long time.. I have read a year or more.
Easy!! Enjoy your Homemade Coconut Butter. And let me know if you make it.
