I bet all you vegans just got really excited.coconut butter 122

Every time I hangout at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s, I’m inclined to purchase their version of the 100% Virgin Organic Coconut Oil, but I hold back each time not knowing what Coconut Oil tastes like.  coconut butter 127

Instead I decided to buy a bag of organic, unsweetened, shredded coconut flakes and whip it up into Coconut Butter.  Seriously, how bad could it be?coconut butter 134

I figured since I love shredded coconut so much, how bad could Coconut Butter possibly taste?  coconut butter 142

Verdict?  Not bad at all,!coconut butter 150

Just make sure to microwave the Coconut Butter for about 20 seconds before using it since the butter tends to harden in colder climates.coconut butter 168

Oh, I’m gonna have lots of fun with this stuff.  coconut butter 190

NUTRITION: Coconut is low in cholesterol and sodium, and it is a good source of fiber.  Although coconut contains high amounts of saturated fats, not all saturated fats pose as a health problem, especially those linked with coconut.  Enjoy this coconut butter in moderation.

  1. @heatherchristine – Microwaving anything will kill the nutrients, I agree. I guess another option would be is to place the jar in warm water. I love Trader Joe's Virgin Coconut Oil – organic. I'll try Nutiva's version out. Thanks for sharing!!! 🙂

  2. @Rosie – I've heard everything in the Netherlands is expensive, understandably so, it is a small country in Europe. Ahhh.. you're so lucky to live in Europe. 🙂 This stuff is amazing.
