Homemade Coconut Butter

Pin It

Paleo food maven Melissa “Melicious” Joulwan is awesome in so many ways, but her greatest contribution to society is her easy recipe for making homemade coconut butter.

Here’s what I gathered to make my own batch:

  • 8 ounce package of Let’s Do Organic Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
  • 1 tablespoon melted coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Pinch of Kosher salt (key ingredient in my humble opinion)

Here’s how I made it:

I dumped everything into my Vitamix…

…and blitzed everything on high for a minute. Yep, my blender is one loud mofo.

After about a minute, a paste forms and you’re done! Don’t over-process the butter because it can overheat the Vitamix and then it’s Bad News Bears!

Presto change-o…coconut butter!

So simple and delicious! Thanks, Mel!
