Coconut butter differs from Coconut oil in that only the fat of the Coconut is used to make oil, whereas Coconut butter is made from the fat and the flesh (or meat) of the Coconut, which is pureed down to a creamy mixture.

Coconut butter is Coconut meat blended up into a creamy butter - it is not the same as coconut oil. It’s creamy and delicious on its own as a snack or a healthy ingredient for cooking or baking.

Place the Coconut in the bowl of a food processor and add the other ingredients. The process is simple, just blend up Coconut flakes in a blender or food processor until it transforms into a creamy butter.

Turn the food processor on high. It needs to run for 10-15 minutes. Be sure to check it around the 5 minute mark so you can scrape down the bowl. Then check it again every 5 minutes or so. You know it’s done when it starts to stick together like cookie dough or is beginning to liquify.

Add some Coconut oil to the blender or processor if it’s not turning into butter.

Your food processor might get a little bit hot during the grinding process Try not to be alarmed.  

When it’s finis, indulge in a little spoonful, then store in an air tight container at room temperature. Just like Coconut oil.

Coconut butter gets solid at cooler temperatures. If you need it softer, place your Coconut butter container in a bowl of warm water to soften.
