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!

  3. Hiya, do you know that ghee is clarified butter, and is not dairy free or vegan?

    • Hi Caz – I never said it was vegan, so I’m unsure where you got that. Ghee is technically considered dairy, however, 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. Hope that helps!

      • Hiya!

        That’s really interesting! I didn’t know that it changes so much when clarified. I will be recommending it to a couple of friends who are dairy intolerant. Thanks for the info!

        • It will probably vary from person to person as to their intolerance, but so far so good for me and a few other people I know! Hope it helps your friends! :)

  4. How long will it keep before spoiling, and under what conditions are best for shelf life?

    • Hi Anthony – If you keep it in the fridge, it will keep pretty much forever. If you keep it at room temp, I’d use it up in a couple weeks to be safe. I personally keep mine in the fridge and just set it out an hour or so before I need it so it can soften. Hope that helps! :)

  5. Looks delicious. Think I’ll try this with GrassFed Organic butter though. I keep my Ghee at work to add to my morning tea.

  6. Ghee is half the price of butter here in Kenya. You have given me ideas of using more ghee than butter. I can tolerate both.
