Homemade Coconut Butter


If you wonder how to make coconut butter at home, it’s super easy!

Add it to smoothies, fruit salads, sauces, salad dressings, and baked goods. Use it as a topping for ice cream, mix with cacao nibs or fruit to create your own dessert sensations, or eat it right out of the jar. Delectable!

Warm it up, mix it up, and spread the flavor! Freshly made from whole coconut flesh, Raw Coconut Butter is a whole food, not just oil. This delicious “cream” melts in your mouth with full coconut flavor and aroma, while giving you whole coconut nutrition: oil, dietary fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals. No additives—only pure, unadulterated coconut.

Raw Coconut Butter is soft at above 80° F. and solid at lower temperatures. You can soften it by putting the jar inside a bowl of warm water; then stir well for a creamy, smooth texture.

Ingredient: Unsweetened shredded coconut.

Place unsweetened shredded coconut in a food processor.

Turn it on, and let your food processor to run anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes.

It’s getting there, but not done yet…

And there you have it, homemade coconut butter…

Enjoy!

  1. Can I store it at room temp? How long? And does it hurt to heat it another way – like microwave? I love the idea of making this myself. Thanks for posting!

    • You are welcome Sonia. And yes, you can store it at room temperature. If it’s warm in the room coconut butter will be in liquid form, if it’s cold temperature it will harden it.
      About microwave… Personally I believe everything that goes into microwave hurt and ruin the flavor and benefits of food, so I don’t use it. I melt it in small pot and it melts in the seconds.
      Have fun making it and cooking, baking with it. It’s so yummy!
