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!
