Coconut butter is a fantastic spread made from dried coconut flakes. If you have a high-speed blender or food processor, you can make your own coconut butter at home in under 10 minutes!



  1. Fill your food processor with 3 cups of dried coconut flakes.
  2. Secure the lid and process the coconut flakes until they grind into a creamy butter.
  3. Use a spatula to scrape the sides of the food processor down and continue to process until the coconut butter is smooth, 5-10 minutes depending on how powerful your food processor is.
  4. Pour coconut butter into an air-tight container or jar, and store at room temperature for 2 weeks.
  5. In cool temps the coconut butter may be too hard to scoop out. When this happens, I place the jar of coconut butter in the microwave and warm up for 20-30 seconds or until it softens up. 

Coconut butter flavorings: Add melted chocolate or coco powder to warm coconut butter to make a chocolate flavored spread! Or add vanilla beans powder or vanilla extract to make a sweet vanilla flavor.


I used a Cuisinart food processor to make this. You can use a high power blender like a Vitamix to make it as well.
