Recently I found a new friend in the kitchen, coconut butter! It's made from primarily coconut meat or flakes so it is packed with fibers. The fiber can help slow the absorption of sugar. A plus in treat making.
Who knew you could make it at home and save big bucks? I didn't! I learned from The Ancestral Chef Louise Hendon;"How to Make Coconut Butter At Home"! If you want to make it, check out her link! I loved the results SO much I wanted to share with all of you. I really liked her detailed outline and how she provided different methods for each kitchen tool. Here is how mine turned out.
There is something magical about doing things yourself. I find so much joy in making things from scratch. Each time you use the coconut butter there will be sweet satisfaction knowing you did it!!!
4-6 Cups Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
Opt: 1-2 Tbsp Coconut Oil or Butter
Combine in a food processor or blender. Blend / Scrape until smooth. Takes about 10 minutes.
