DIY coconut butter

A favorite way to use coconut butter is to spread it on toast or just eat a spoonful of it here and there. Careful, it’s really addicting! You can also use it in baking. It tastes delicious in cookies or vegan fudge. When coconut butter is in its liquid form, you can drizzle it over ice cream, granola, fruit, or cereal.


 Start by placing shredded and unsweetened coconut in a food processor and pulse. PS: This might work with sweetened but I haven’t tried it and not sure if I would like that sugary taste.

 After the first few minutes the shredded coconut will start clumping together (as seen above), keep pulsing…

 Several minutes later, you’ll see it turning into a smooth paste. You’ll have to scrape the side down several times at this stage. If you’re food processor starts heating up, give it a break. The coconut won’t go bad if you let it sit in the food processor for 5 minutes or 20 or an hour. Better to do this slowly than ending up with a broken food processor.

 Just when you think that there is no way this will turn into coconut butter, it becomes nice an smooth. Due to the heat from your food processor, you will have coconut butter in a nearly liquid form. This actually makes it easy to pour out of the food processor and into your container. Pop it in the fridge to firm it up or drizzle it right away over your favourite icecream

I like my coconut butter best when it has a frosting consistency. Now that it’s colder my coconut butter is almost always hard. So I heat it in a water bath and then whip it with a food processor. It looks nicer and then you can spread it smoothly on anything and everything.
