As the shift from preservatives and processed foods continues to rise, coconut butter is becoming a popular butter and topping alternative. While at grocery and health stores coconut butter is often a pricier commodity, this at-home recipe explains how to make homemade coconut butter for a fraction of the cost.

While coconut oil is a cooking agent, coconut butter is a spread that is ideal for topping on pancakes, baked goods and using in cooking recipes. To make the coconut butter at home all you need is shredded coconut that is unsweetened, coconut oil and salt. The ingredients are placed inside a food processor till whipped and fluffy in texture. Adding a homemade and artisan spin to higher priced products ensures healthy items are available to all demographics.
