I've passed up quite a few amazing sounding recipes in the past that called for coconut butter. Why? I didn't want to pay for organic coconut butter because well, it's a little steep. Some of the top brands I've looked at run around $10 for 16 oz.
So a few months ago I ordered a gallon of organic shredded coconut for about $17 with big plans to make coconut milk and finally make my own coconut butter. I was tired of passing up on these amazing recipes!
I don't know what took me so long! Making your own coconut butter is simple. I mean like ridiculously simple. All you need is shredded coconut or coconut flakes and a blender.
