How to make Coconut Butter by Alphafoodie
Images and recipe by Alphafoodie
*Servings 500 grams
- 500 grams organic, unsweetened shredded (desiccated) coconut . ( You can also use store-bought).
- Add the coconut to your Nutramilk processor and blend**. As the blender works to break down the coconut, oils from within the coconut will be released and will contribute to making a coconut paste, which eventually becomes a smooth coconut butter. The whole process should take between 5-10 minutes.
- Store in a cool cupboard but if you prefer to store in the fridge it will solidify, which is fine. Just melt for 5 seconds in the microwave to get it super smooth again.
- * If using store-bought, the coconut may be too dry to easily blend into a super smooth butter. To combat this you can either bake it in the oven for 10 minutes @ 100C. OR simply add 1/2-1tbsp coconut oil to the Nutramilk. This will help get the process started.
