DIY Easy Coconut Butter

Since the Coconut Cheese Post, people have been asking me where to get coconut butter. In the States, it’s easy…it’s in the health food store. But here, not so easy. But this recipe is!

Recipe of the Day – DIY Coconut Butter

Ingredients:

2 c. shredded coconut or coconut flakes

Juice of one lemon

Pinch of salt

A little extra coconut oil if you need it for the right consistency

Directions:
  1. Add the shredded coconut or flakes to the blender of food processor with a pinch of salt.
  2. Scrape the sides down every minute or so with a spatula. Continue until the coconut has turned to coconut butter and is liquefied. Store it in an airtight container like a mason jar. The blender is fast, but the food processor could take up to 10 minutes, if you’ve got a little one, like mine. Worth the wait, though! You’ll use this for everything!

Word/Phrase of the Day – Vale la pena –  it’s worth it

Tip of the Day –  Use coconut butter for anything you would use butter for. Great in gluten-free brownies, cookies and other baked goods, popcorn, potatoes, and as a spread for your breads!
