So a couple of days ago I pre-heated the oven, pierced a sweet potato and was 20 minutes into baking it when I realised I had no coconut butter left to top it with...
That was pretty much my faceWhat would I top my sweet tater with now??? (yes I know there are a million and one other things I could have topped that veggie with... but I wanted COCONUT BUTTER!(Wow, I seriously am a whining baby!)
*Head stuck in pantry crying* Suddenly a purple bag catches my eye in the corner of the pantry.
SHREDDED COCONUT!!post on this in the past, but I think I took better pics this time, so coming at ya- Home made coconut butter tutorial!
(Little tip- make sure you have quite a bit of spare time, a good food processor, patience and maybe some ear plugs ;)
To begin I placed a bag of organic shredded coconut in a food processor (it doesn't really matter how much, just make sure you have enough- most bags will work) and whazzed! (I just hit my low button and let it go)
After about 3-5 mins it should start to combine and look a bit like bread crumbs:
After another 5 or so minutes more of the oils will come out of the coconut and start to clump together:
sterilised jar and keep it fridge/ pantry (it'll set in fridge, but will last longer- just scrape some out and melt on hot things/ in microwave)
Dinner was saved!
Cheaper and just as yummy as store bought coconut butter- why not make your own?
