Make your own Coconut Butter

Homemade Coconut Butter! The post I should’ve written a long time ago!

Yesterday afternoon, I made a Single-Lady Cupcake.

Not just any single lady cupcake. This one is covered with homemade coconut butter (and cacao nibs). Every time I post a recipe using coconut butter, bunches of coconuts people leave comments lamenting the lack of coconut butter in their areas (or lack of $, for coconut butter, in their wallets).  Never fear; a remedy exists! You can make your own coconut butter to use any way you’d use Artisana Coconut Butter.

  • Shredded, unsweetened coconut (full-fat)
  • Oh wait, there aren't any other ingredients!
Total Time: 10m


Homemade Coconut Butter: I took a bag of shredded coconut (Let’s Do Organic brand) and simply blended it in my Vita-Mix for about 3-5 minutes. (Note: If you use a food processor, blend for 10-ish minutes.) That’s all there is to it! Chocoholics can also make Homemade Chocolate Coconut Butter.

Side note: Depending on where you live–and the temperature/altitude–you might have trouble with this recipe. It works perfectly for me (and many of the commenters). Coconut butter is very tempermental and reacts oddly in different climates. I wish this would work for everyone, but a few people have left comments saying they’ve encountered trouble. So please know before trying that there’s a chance this recipe might not work for you. Also, if it refuses to turn to butter for you, it might be worth a shot to add some coconut oil to the blender… sometimes that fixes things right up!

This recipe works great in Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge.

Just a thought. :)
