Homemade Coconut Butter

Homemade butter is awesome. You control the quality of the ingredients and it is so satisfying! We also love this Peach Butter – only three ingredients.


As I may have mentioned ( 50 times ), I am doing the Whole 30 challenge for the month of April and one of things on the “have as much as you want” list is coconut. Of course, this means I must try all the things with coconut that I can.

My friend Lisa, who is taking the challenge with me, stumbled upon a great price in the bulk section on organic coconut and picked me up a pound of it. Boom! My first thought was to make coconut butter. I’ve bought jars of it before, not cheap by the way, and loved it for it’s creaminess and versatility. I made these delicious –> Coconut Energy Balls with my store bought version and they’ve become a super popular recipe on the Honour System.

So here I am with a massive bag of coconut and nothing in my way. We’re off! It’s so easy, I can’t believe its the first time I’m trying my hand at homemade coconut butter.

Blitz it with some coconut oil until it smooth and pour-able.

Off it goes into a jar and then off to the fridge to set.

Less than thirty minutes later you have coconut butter, my friends.

It stays solid but spreadable at room temperature and is so good I devoured about three big spoonful’s of it once it had set.

Use it to spread on toast, make energy balls, or like me, just spoon it in. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Yum yum! I love coconut butter, but have always been disappointed at how my homemade versions turn out. I will have to try adding the oil and see if that makes a difference!

    1. I figured there’s a lot of oil in nut butters so why not coconut butter too? I’m sure you’ll love it. Have a great weekend Lauren! ๐Ÿ™‚
