It is no secret that I love coconuts. My all time favorite coconut product is coconut butter. I use it on a daily basis. Coconut baby loves her coconut butter too! We pay anywhere from $10-$15 for a 16 oz jar of this stuff. Not cheap! So I decided it was time to start making our own.
Homemade Coconut Butter
Makes 1/2 – 3/4 cup
Ingredients: 2 cups organic shredded coconut
Directions: Process shredded coconut in food processor or vita-mix for 15-20 minutes.
Slowly but surely, the shredded coconut became coconut butter! In this picture – Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream Concentrate, Artisana Raw Coconut Butter, and Coconut Mama’s Coconut Butter.
I gave the Coconut Baby a taste test of each coconut butter.
She checked the texture of the products as well as the flavors. Only the one with the most coconut flavor would win her over.
- 2 cups organic shredded coconut
- Process shredded coconut in food processor or Vitamix for 15-20 minutes.
