I’ve passed up quite a few amazing sounding recipes in the past that called for coconut butter. Why? I didn’t want to pay for organic coconut butter because well, it’s a little steep. Some of the top brands I’ve looked at run around $10 for 16 oz.

So a few months ago I ordered a gallon of organic shredded coconut for about $17 with big plans to make coconut milk and finally make my own coconut butter. I was tired of passing up on these amazing recipes!

I don’t know what took me so long! Making your own coconut butter is simple. I mean like ridiculously simple. All you need is shredded coconut or coconut flakes and a blender.

I used 3 cups of shredded coconut and it yielded about 4-6 ounces. You can easily double the recipe for more.

I store my coconut butter in the cabinet. It will harden a little unless your kitchen is really hot. You may need to warm it up a little the next time you need to use it.
