Ingredients

  • 1 lb unsweetened shredded coconut or coconut flakes
  • Pinch of salt
  • Melted coconut oil for adjusting the consistency

Instructions

  1. Load the coconut flakes into the blender or food processor. Add a pinch of salt. Turn the machine on.
  2. If using a blender like a Vitamix, you may want to use the tamper to push the flakes down. After a minute or so, the coconut will begin to liquefy. Stop the machine and scrape the sides down with a spatula. Continue until the coconut has turned to coconut butter and is liquefied and store it in an airtight container like a mason jar.
  3. If using a food processor, this processor will take longer…somewhere in the range of 8-10 minutes. Patience is your friend. Stop the machine and scrape the sides down with a spatula a few times. Continue until the coconut has turned to coconut butter and is softened and store it in an airtight container like a mason jar.
