Recipe: Coconut Butter

from the blog: Heather Eats Almond Butter

Coconut Butter

  • Put it on pancakes
  • Use it to frost cupcakes
  • Mix it in your oatmeal
  • Slather it on sweet potato fries
  • Add it to smoothies
  • Spread it on toast
  • Put it on vegetables in place of butter

Coconut contains a vegetarian source of saturated fat consisting of medium fat chain fatty acids (MFCAs). In the past, MFCA’s have been recognized for their anti-viral and anti-microbial properties. The body uses them as energy instead of storing them as fat. 

  1. Place unsweetened shredded coconut in a food processor.
  2. Turn it on, and allow your food processor to run anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes.
  3. It’s getting there, but not done yet…
  4. And voila, homemade coconut butter…

No refrigeration necessary, and it will solidify at room temperature. Enjoy!
