Homemade Coconut Butter is so easy to make and so much cheaper than purchasing coconut butter. Coconut butter is a spread made from the meat of the coconut much in the same way peanuts are used to make peanut butter. You can use your homemade coconut butter in baking in place of the butter or oil.
Coconut butter is simply just unsweetened coconut flakes blended into a buttery consistency. The consistency of coconut butter will depend on the temperature. When cold, it is a solid substance. To warm, just simply warm the jar to approximately 85 degrees F. until soft and buttery. You can even add other ingredients to your homemade coconut butter. How about a pinch of salt, some vanilla extract, melted chocolate, and even some peanut butter? Some people like to spread the coconut butter on toast, waffles, or even melt and pour over ice crea. Be creative!
You probably have seen coconut butter on the shelf in your local health food store. Well, in the store it is very expensive! So why buy it when you can easily make your own homemade coconut butter?
