We’re making homemade 1 ingredient coconut butter, casual. No big deal. Dare we say homemade coconut butter is going to be the high point of your day? We’ll leave that for you to decide…




  1. Fill blender cup with 8 cups of coconut chips and a pinch of salt. Blend & tamp for 30 seconds, or until the volume of coconut breaks down significantly.
  2. Use a spatula to scrape the sides of your blender. Add the additional 6 cups of coconut chips. Blend for 60-90 seconds until a smooth, blending consistency is achieved.
  3. If after 2-3 minutes the coconut still does not resemble a butter, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Blend & tamp again.
  4. Place into a jar & enjoy!


** We recommend keeping this at room temperature v. in the fridge. In cool temps, the coconut butter will turn into one solid block of coco butter!

** To return coconut butter to a soft state for cooking, measuring, or baking simply place the jar of coconut butter in a bowl of hot water for 15 minutes, covered.

** If you have difficulty making coconut butter, double check you are using a high powered blender and wide coconut chips, not desiccated coconut!

** You can use a food processor just note the coconut butter will not yield nearly as smooth a consistency!

** Making your own coconut butter is cost-effective! To make 3 cups of coconut butter, it only cost me about $8.00 whereas a small jar (8oz) costs $10-$12! That’s a win.
