Coconut butter

I recently saw a tutorial on how to make coconut butter and thought “Well this looks easy enough, let’s give it a try!” I do love almost everything coconut related after all.

It really is super easy to make – you basically put dried coconut flakes in a mixer and mix it until it is a smooth and somewhat liquid mixture. The recipe I used said to add salt by taste, however, I added sugar instead. You could also not add anything at all and just put it on later – that’s really up to you and your personal taste.

Note: When the butter dries it gets very hard and it’s best to put it in the microwave for a bit so you can spread it easier. Ergo: don’t use a jar with metal (like the one pictured in the photographs above). Be smart, learn from my mistakes ;-)
