CocoGhee? What is that you ask?
Well, it is a delicious combination of coconut oil and grass-fed ghee, whipped together with sweet raw honey and spicy cinnamon. A perfect combination of delicious ingredients.
You know how some restaurants serve soft, whipped honey butter with their breads? I used to love that. The delicious sweet honey mixed with the saltiness of the butter … YUMMO! I went dairy free almost a year ago and have not had butter since. It is probably one of the hardest things I have ever had to give up. I do eat some grass-fed ghee, which I seem to tolerate just fine, so ghee has become my new butter. While ghee is technically considered a dairy product, it does not contain the dairy protein, casein, or any of the milk sugars (like lactose), which is what people who cannot tolerate dairy typically react to. In my case, I have to avoid casein (so I can’t eat butter), but I can tolerate ghee just fine.
Recently, I had a craving for that soft honey butter and decided to try whipping some ghee and coconut oil together and see how that worked. It was fantastic. I added some cinnamon, salt, and raw honey, and boom. This stuff is good enough to just eat off the spoon! Rich, creamy, salty, and sweet.
I have been enjoying it as a topping on roasted squash and yes, I do occasionally just eat a spoonful of it plain. You could also use it any way you would use regular honey butter. On muffins, bread, pancakes, and more. It would be amazing on my pumpkin spice bread version one, or pumpkin spice bread version two. If you don’t have ghee and can tolerate dairy, you could sub butter for the ghee and it would be equally amazing! Enjoy!
Honey Cinnamon CocoGhee

1 cup grass-fed ghee (softened to room temperature)
1 cup virgin coconut oil (soft, but not melted)
2-4 tbsp. raw honey (more or less depending on how sweet you want it)
1 tsp. to 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon (read why I love Vietnamese cinnamon)
1/4 tsp. sea salt (more or less depending on how salty you like it)
In a mixer bowl (either a stand mixer or your hand-held mixer), whip the ghee and coconut oil until fluffy.
With the mixer running, drizzle in the honey and whip until combined.
With the mixer still running, sprinkle in the cinnamon and salt.
Continue whipping until fully combined and mixture is light and fluffy.
Serve on bread, pancakes, or any other place you so desire. If you’re like me, you may find you like to eat it by the spoonful!
