Recently I bought some coconut butter from amazon. It cost about $8 for a little jar of it.. and yes, it was yummy. Most importantly though, it is what I use to make my awesome peppermint patties.
I had run out of coconut butter, so I searched online to see if I could make my own. Turns out that I can, and that it is SO EASY, now I feel really stupid for even buying it the first time.
This is the blog that I found the tutorial on. She has some great pictures of the process.
I did it in my ninja food processor and it really didn’t take very long. In her tutorial, she said it took her 10-12 minutes.. but it really only took me like 2 minutes.
How to make Coconut Butter
1. put unsweetened, shredded coconut in a food processor and blend!! blend it until it becomes the consistency of coconut butter, smooth and creamy.
2. put it in a container and store at room temp.
