Homemade Coconut Butter

Homemade Coconut Butter

  • 1 ½ cups shredded/desiccated coconut
  • 4 tsp oil (sunflower, olive, coconut – whatever works best for you, as long as it doesn’t conflict with the coconut flavour)
  1. Place ½ cup coconut in blender. Blend till fine (you may need to stop every 30 seconds or so to push the coconut back down to the bottom.
  2. Keep the blender going and add oil ½ tsp at a time, allowing each addition to be thoroughly combined before adding the next. Again, turn blender off and scrape the sides down frequently.
  3. Once you have a paste-like consistency, keep blender going and add another ¼ cup coconut. Wait till thoroughly incorporated, then add another ¼ cup. Leave to blend for a few minutes until you have a liquid-like consistency (the heat from the blender will cause the oil to melt, creating the liquid-like consistency).
  4. Add the final ½ cup and blend till you get back to the liquid consistency. Transfer to jar or tub and leave to cool.
  5. Will set once it reaches room temperature. This takes longer than you’d think, so be patient!
