Prep Time1 min

  • 4 cups desiccated coconut *


  • Blend. Add the desiccated coconut into a Vitamix blender and blend on high until creamy, for about 1 minute. The coconut will go from ground to pasty to creamy. Use the tamper to push the coconut down into the blade as you’re blending. The finished coconut butter will be creamy but slightly grainy. This is completely normal and characteristic of store-bought coconut butter as well.
  • Store. Leftover coconut butter keeps well in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 month, For longer term storage, refrigerate for up to 3 months or freeze for up to 6 months.


*I used a 48-oz Vitamix container for this amount of coconut. If you are using a 64-oz low-profile container, you will need 5-6 cups of desiccated coconut.
