How to Make Coconut Butter

How to make coconut butter! Save money and make your own at home!

You can make your own coconut butter. You really can.


  • 4 cups full-fat unsweetened shredded coconut or coconut flakes (where to find)
  • Optional: 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Makes it smoother but if you don’t have any coconut oil on hand, it’s not a problem. (where to find coconut oil)


  1. Dump the shredded coconut into the blender and BLEND. Start slowly and work your way up to high. Use the tamper if you have one.
  2. Using a high-speed blender, you’ll need to blend for at least a minute, more for other blenders. I think that should do it.
  3. Pour into a container for keeping. Can be stored in pantry or cabinet. I don’t recommend refrigerating it. Stir well before use. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.


Coconut butter will solidify in colder months or colder areas. To melt, set in a bowl of hot water until more liquefied.
