Coconut Butter


  • 1 dry coconut (gola)


  1. Scrape off the external brown layer of the dry coconut and cut it into small pieces.
  2. Transfer the pieces into a blender and blend for 5-7 minutes. Ensure that you only blend for 15-20 seconds at a time, or your blender will overheat.
  3. First, your coconut will convert into a powder. You may feel like it will never turn into butter, but soon the powder will turn into a buttery substance.
  4. Transfer butter into a jar. Can store for 5-7 days.

Tip: If the butter sticks to the side of the blender, scrape it down and blend again.


Making homemade coconut butter using this simple recipe offers several benefits:

  1. Pure Coconut Goodness: By preparing your coconut butter at home, you ensure that it is made from pure, unadulterated coconut. There are no added preservatives, sugars, or other additives that are sometimes present in store-bought coconut butter.
  2. No Added Preservatives or Additives: Similar to the benefits of homemade peanut butter, making coconut butter at home allows you to avoid the inclusion of preservatives and additives commonly found in commercial products.
  3. Freshness: Homemade coconut butter is likely to be fresher compared to store-bought alternatives. The process of blending fresh coconut pieces ensures that the natural oils are released, contributing to a creamy and flavorful butter.
  4. Customization: You have the flexibility to customize the coconut butter to suit your preferences. You can experiment with the texture and flavor by adjusting the blending time or adding a pinch of salt for taste.
  5. Nutrient Retention: Making coconut butter at home helps retain the natural nutrients present in coconut. Coconut is rich in healthy fats, and the minimal processing in this recipe helps preserve its nutritional value.
  6. Cost-Effective: While fresh coconut might be more readily available in certain regions, making your coconut butter can be cost-effective, especially if you buy coconut in bulk.
  7. Versatility: Homemade coconut butter can be used in various culinary applications. It serves as a delicious spread, a base for sauces and curries, or as an ingredient in baking and cooking.
  8. No Hydrogenated Oils: Unlike some commercial products that may contain hydrogenated oils, homemade coconut butter allows you to choose healthier oil options or omit them altogether.

Remember to store your homemade coconut butter in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for optimal freshness. Enjoy the natural richness and flavor of coconut in its purest form with this homemade butter.
