“Organic Raw Coconut Butter, Yum!”

Have you tried raw coconut butter? No.. it’s not really “butter” but it is way way more delicious!

I came across Artisana Organic Raw Coconut Butter last year and love it, LOVE it on oatmeal!

This below is peach instant oatmeal with a dash of milk & melted coconut butter on top. *heaven*

It is also good in recipes, especially stir fry. Great in thai food and delicious melted on top of banana bread. The best thing about this is it needs NO refrigeration. A tip from Artisana: “Mix Artisana Coconut Butter with Agave Nectar, Vanilla, and a pinch of Sea Salt for a fantastic raw frosting (sandwich it between two cookies…YUM!!!).”

Ingredients: 100% Organic, Raw Coconut
Notably absent: pesticides, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives, stabilizers, added oils, GMO’s.
Contains absolutely no Peanuts, Gluten, or Dairy

You can purchase it from amazon: Artisana Organic Raw Coconut Butter 16oz

How about you can make your own? All you need is a food processor, unsweetened shredded coconut, and a little bit of time! Recipe here.

    I use the coconut oil (I’m assuming it’s the same as the butter…looks the same) for skin care for my baby and myself. It is GREAT for diaper rash and I’ve heard for eczema, too. I haven’t tried to eat it yet though, because that seems weird after you slather on a baby butt!

      Coconut oil is a solid below 78 degrees Fahrenheit. In the solid state coconut oil is called coconut butter. Coconut oil and coconut butter are actually the same thing.

        No coconut butter has actual coconut flesh. Especially the brand above. My husband bought it by accident once. It is best to use as spreads. It is kind of like peanut butter yet made with coconut. I ate the whole jar by eating a spoonfull a day. Try it you will like it.

      You can keep microwaving the jar anytime you use it, it’s super handy and you don’t need to put it in your fridge. You might be able to find it at whole foods. It’s super great in rice. I made rice last night with pigeon peas, chicken broth, seasonings and the coconut butter… super YUMMY!
