Coconut Butter

coconut butter

Coconut butter. Could I ever say enough about this stuff? One incredible ingredient. Coconut is packed full of fiber, vitamins, calcium, magnesium and potassium. It offers amino acids and electrolytes, as well as plenty of the good fats -the perfect brain food! It aids in digestion and absorption of nutrients. It’s all the ‘anti’s’ as well: Anti-fugal, viral, bacterial and parasitical! I could go on and on.

You can buy coconut butter at the store, but its expensive (especially when you eat it by the tablespoon.) and so incredibly easy to make! All you need are coconut shreds and a blender/food processor.

Add your coconut to your blender and turn up to the highest setting. It only took a minute in my Vitamix to achieve a thick and creamy butter!  (It may take longer in a food processor or a different blender.)

Store in a glass container. No refrigeration necessary.

You can get fancy with this recipe and add cocoa, carob, vanilla, or essential oils like peppermint. Get creative!
