I love coconut. It’s fantastic. But recently its gotten to the point where I’ve stopped buying some coconut products because they’re priced outrageously!
Thankfully, I found a fantastic recipe via here, to show you how to make your own COCONUT BUTTER! Mmmhmmm!
And it’s so simple!
All you need to do to make this is:
Organic, dehydrated coconut flakes!
To transform such a simple ingredient into a delicious butter, blend the flakes (I used 400g) in a food processor until it turns runny and smooth (this took my processor about 9 minutes but it depends on your processor).
NOTE: For 400g of flakes, it made approximately 375ml of coconut butter.
Pour the liquid into a jar and store it in either the fridge or pantry (depending on your plans for it) until it sets.
Are you wondering what you could do with this wonderful ingredient?
- Add it to smoothies
- Stir it into coffee
- Spread it on toast
- Use as a frosting
- Add to protein/bliss balls
- Add to cakes or muffins
- Use as a face mask (not too much though)
- Or as an all-round moisturiser!
But be careful! It’s addictive!
