Coconut butter is one of those foods that can be super expensive and seemingly complicated to produce. But the reality couldn't be further from the truth! One bag of unsweetened organic coconut flakes costs less than four dollars and, after a few spins in your food processor, is turned into this luxurious butter. I like to use it in place of butter on toast, as a way to make my morning oatmeal just a little richer, or as a base for my healthy fudge recipe.
2 cups unsweetened organic shredded coconut
Place coconut shreds in food processor and blend for five minutes. Using a spatula, scrape off any coconut bits from the side and return to middle of food processor. Repeat until coconut bits have released their oils and turned into a soft butter, about 3 or 4 times. Makes about 3/4 cup. Store at room temperature indefinitely. Enjoy!
