Homemade Coconut Butter

Good morning! :biggrin:

We have another situation here.


I love coconut butter. My favourite kind is the Artisana Raw Coconut Butter. It is smooth as silk and subtly sweet.


However, heavenly bliss comes with a hefty price tag. Granted, it lasts me forever, but when Ashley told me that I could actually make my own coconut butter very easily, I knew I had to try it myself!

All I did was put 2 cups of shredded organic coconut into the food processor…


Process your little heart out. Use a spoon to scrape down the side of the bowl. This takes about 10 minutes or so.

Then you will be left with beautiful coconut butter!


Who knew!?


I compared the homemade coconut butter to the to Artisana and the Artisana brand was definitely smoother and a bit sweeter and overall better tasting. I have a feeling it has something to do with the way they process it. I’m guessing you could also get it smoother in a Vita-Mix or Blendtec blender. This did the trick though and was sure delicious!


Homemade Coconut Butter


  • 2 cups shredded coconut


Directions: Process in a food processor (or capable blender) for about 10 minutes until a butter forms, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Yields: approx 1/2 cup coconut butter.

I can’t wait to try this in VOO!


I also made Carob Coconut Butter because I LOVE carob and coconut together. My Heaven Glo Bar is based on this combination.


The carob powder gives it a bit of natural sweetness too.


Carob Coconut Butter

  • 1/4 cup or more of homemade coconut butter
  • 1 tbsp of carob powder

Directions: MIX!


If you are a coconut fan, you will love it!

Needless to say, breakfast was AWESOME this morning…


I was in HEAVEN.




I’m drooling. Again.

Well, this gal is getting back to work. I hope you have a glowing Tuesday and I will see you later today! :biggrin:

Hi – I made coconut butter – and thought it went perfectly – except it didn’t solidify! Did I not blend it long enough? What have I done wrong?

The unsweetened coconut that I got at the store was pretty darn dry. I’m just thinking that it wouldn’t come out very smooth because of the dryness. Couldn’t you add a bit of coconut oil if it was too dry?

How do you store this? I successfully made some but it’s gone quite hard in the cupboard
