I am so excited to have figured out how to make coconut butter at home! And for practically nothing! No more 8 dollar jars of Artisana for me!
3 cup Coconut (mature or dehydrated)
1½ tablespoon Coconut Oil
I guessed on the amounts…
Simply process coconut until it is a fine flour, then add in a little bit of oil at a time.
The consistency should be rather liquidy.
(If you have never had coconut butter before it really might be difficult to tell if you’ve got it or not. There should not be any detectable peice of coconut left though.)
The mixture will congeal at room temperature.
My favorite thing to do with coconut butter is make chocolate mousse to eat with raw strawberry shortcake…Recipe coming soon!
Disclaimer: Depending on the cost of coconut where you live this might not be cheaper, as some of the comments on this page indicate. Check the price of the amount of coconuts you’ll need before jumping up and clicking your heels, I ‘spose. I live in Florida right now so coconuts are free. However, dehydrated coconut is really cheap if I remember correctly…
