What you will need:
Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
Do not use low-fat or sweetened coconut flakes. It will not work. I have tried to make butter out of them, but to no avail. You will end up where you started and that is with coconut flakes. And yes, I have tried baking them to dry them out. It just doesn’t work.
- 2-2⅔ cups of Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
- Place the shredded coconut into a food processor and spread it out evenly.
- Set the pulse to HIGH and leave it to run for 5-8 minutes. You may need to check it halfway through to run a spatula along the inside to ensure that all the flakes have processed through. Time will be dependent on how many cups you are wanting to process.
- Once you're done processing, pour the coconut butter into a jar, cover it with a lid and store at room temperature. It will solidify to room temperature as it cools.
