How To Make Coconut Butter

An easy tutorial on how to make coconut butter at home. You’ll never need to buy another jar of coconut butter again.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Yield 1 recipe (varies)


  • 12-16 oz shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • optional 2-4 tbsp coconut oil
  • optional sweetener of choice
  • optional cocoa powder if desired


  • Blend the coconut in either a food processor or high-speed blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. It can take anywhere from 3-18 minutes, depending on desired smoothness and your machine. If your coconut just doesn’t seem to want to turn into smooth butter for some reason (climate, elevation, or just a naturally-lower-fat bag of coconut), add a few tbsp coconut oil to the blender, and that should fix it! After it’s done, you can sweeten or add cocoa or other flavors as desired. Stored in a covered container, leftovers will last a few months and need no refrigeration. Coconut butter is solid at room temperature but will turn back to butter when heated – be sure to heat it gently so it does not burn.
