  • coconut butter

    I found a recipe for coconut butter online, using a 'Thermomix'. I don't have one, but I thought I could do the same thing using a regular blender... basically you just blend dessicated coconut for some time, and it turns into a buttery consistency.

    Well, my attempt didn't.

    It turned into a sludge, slightly resembling cold porridge, with a slight gray tinge to it. The taste was bland, and sort of bleugh. I wouldn't consider it to be a 'sweet treat' at all! I've put it in the freezer to see if it can be redeemed as some sort of 'primal ice-cream'. Perhaps?

    Does anyone have any better method for making coconut butter?

    Thanks.

      Wish I could Dr. Bork Bork, but I don't really have that option! AND, given that I live in a land overflowing with fresh coconuts, there surely has to be some way of making it!

      I asked some of my Thai friends where I could get coconut butter, and they looked at me totally gone out. They have literally never heard of it.

        Sorry, didn't see you are outside of the states. My bad. Have you tried just taking dried coconut flake and putting it through your food processor in a pulse motion? (I know you said you tried Thermomix, but that sounds like it over did it) I find that pulse is more controlled.

            What I might try, is running it through my juicer. Just watched a YouTube video showing how - but he uses fresh coconut that he dried using a dehydrator (which I don't have).

            He says the dessicated coconut you buy in the shops has had all the oil removed (which I'm not sure is true) so you can't use it. But, I'm gonna give it a go anyway.

            He ran his dehydrated dessicated coconut through his juicer about 3 times, and the end result was... coconut butter.
