  • Place the ingredients into your blender jar. If using a Blendtec, it works best with their Twister jar! Only takes about 1 minute!
  • For BLENDTEC: Using your Twister jar, run the BATTERS cycle. Twist continuously throughout the cycle to push the coconut down towards the blades. You may have to run the cycle twice to get the consistency buttery.
  • For Vitamix: Start on Variable Speed 1 and slowly increase to Variable Speed 10/HIGH. When it sounds like the blade is no longer hitting the coconut, turn the blender off and use a spatula to press the coconut back down towards the blade. Then resume blending, using the tamper to push the coconut back down into the blade.
  • If the butter consistency does not emerge after 3 to 4 minutes, drizzle a small amount of coconut oil into the mixture and continue blending until desired consistency is reached.
  • Store at room temperature.
  • Reheat in the microwave, oven, or a warm water bath, and enjoy for longer than a month, if you don't eat it all before then!
  • All done! Enjoy!! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments! :) Tag @BlenderBabes & #BlenderBabes


*Do not use low- or reduced-fat or unsweetened coconut. The type of coconut flakes you use WILL matter in the final product - do not use desiccated or powdered, or coconut flour. ONLY dried, shredded unsweetened coconut will work. We use Let's Do Organic brand and had good results, but let us know what you use in the comments!
