How to Make Coconut Butter

Coconut butter is delicious, creamy, and a perfect ingredient for raw desserts!  At the store, a jar of coconut butter will cost anywhere form $8-15 and it's not always organic.  Instead, try buying organic shredded coconut from the bulk bins and make your own!

Just take a minimum of 2 cups dry shredded coconut and add it your food processor fitted with the "S blade.".  Adding less than two cups causes the coconut to just stick to the edges and bottom without incorporating. Stick to 2 or more cups at a time for the best results.
Process for 10 to 15 minutes stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides.  After awhile, you will get coconut butter.  Process longer for a thinner butter and for a thicker butter, process for less time. 

Here is my coconut butter after 10 minutes.  I processed for an additional 5 minutes then put the coconut butter in a mason jar.  It will keep in the refrigerator for about a week.  Try making your own and see how easy and fun it is!
