Homemade Coconut Butter is made by pureeing unsweetened shredded coconut into a liquid/paste. It's a superfood that can be eaten as is, used in baking, cooking, or in smoothies, or simply spread on breads, dark chocolate, etc. There are so many ways to enjoy this health food!

Homemade Coconut Butter

Yield 2 cups coconut butter


  • 5 cups approximately 1lb unsweetened shredded coconut


  1. Using a Blendtec and Twister Jar, blend half of the shredded coconut at a time, twisting the Twister Lid counter-clockwise as needed, until liquified. I used the ice cream button (medium-high speed for 45 seconds.)
  2. Pour coconut butter into a microwaveable container with a lid for storage. The coconut butter will solidify as it sits at room temperature. Store in a cool place, but it does not have to be refrigerated.
  3. TO USE: Heat for 30 seconds at a time in the microwave (no metal lids!) until it gets to a soft, spreadable texture/paste. It may take a few minutes depending on how cold it is where you store it.
