Homemade Coconut Butter (Vegan)

Homemade Coconut Butter is amazing!If you have been following this blog for a while, you know that I LOVE coconut and coconut butter.

Funny thing is, I used to hate it.  Now my body craves it.  I guess it knows what is healthy. 🙂  I had an obsession with coconut butter ever since my first taste of Nutiva Organic Coconut Manna.

That stuff is the bomb and it melts in your mouth.  It can get quite pricey, so I thought I would make my own coconut butter.  It’s super easy!

So easy that I feel kind of funny calling it a recipe.  Kind of like my Homemade Peanut Butter.  Coconut butter just takes a bit longer than peanut butter, so be patient.

Coconut butter can be used a spread or a dip.  If you use it in baking it can add a richer flavor.  Coconut butter is naturally gluten free, grain free and vegan.

Prep Time 20 min Serves 1 cup     adjust servings



  1. In the food processor , blend up the shredded coconut, scraping the sides down every few minutes. Be prepared to be patient. It takes about 20 minutes.


Recipe Notes

If you use a blender , it takes about half the time, but you have to scrape down the sides more often and it is harder to manage. I liked making it in the food processor much better. I mixed it for a minute or two and walked away. Came back to mix some more a few minutes later. I just kept repeating those steps until I saw a creamy mixture. It took about 20 minutes for me. Super easy! I store mine in a small mason jar . I love mason jars. You can never have enough. I think it should keep for a couple of weeks. I keep mine on the counter top. You can store it in the fridge, but it will harden slightly. That’s it! Enjoy!

  1. Can't you just use a block of creamed coconut? Or don't you have that in the over your side of the pond? (By the way, if you DO have creamed coconut and haven't tried this already, it makes amazing coconut yoghurt - much thicker and more like greek set yoghurt than a tin of coconut milk).
    1. If have never tried to make coconut butter from creamed coconut. We do have that here, and I use it in a few recipes. :)
    2. I make my own coconut yogurt thickened with arrowroot starch. I never thought to use creamed coconut. You can find it down he ethnic aisle at Superstore in Canada and at my local health food store. Great idea!
