How to Make Your Own Vegan Butter

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


  • 1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons plant milk (soy, almond, rice etc)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup refined extra virgin coconut oil, just melted
  • 3/4 cup organic sunflower or olive oil
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons soy or sunflower lecithin granules (in the fridge at your health food store)
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (easy to find with gluten-free baking goods at your health food store)
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric (to give the butter a slight yellow colour)


  1. Place the soy milk, apple cider vinegar and salt in a small cup and whisk together with a fork. Let it sit for about 10 minutes so the mixture curdles.
  2. Melt the coconut oil so it’s barely melted and as close to room temperature as possible. Measure it and add it and the sunflower or olive oil to a blender or food processor. Making smooth vegan butter is dependent on the mixture solidifying as quickly as possible after it’s mixed. This is why it’s important to make sure your coconut oil is as close to room temperature as possible before you mix it with the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Add the soy milk mixture, soy lecithin, xanthan gum and turmeric to the blender or food processor. Process for 1-2 minutes, scraping down the sides halfway through the duration. Pour the mixture into a 2 cup glass bowl (with lid) or a mold (ice cube tray works perfectly) and place it in the freezer to solidify. The butter should be ready to use in about an hour.
  4. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month or wrapped in plastic wrap in the freezer for up to 1 year. Fills one standard ice cube tray and makes 1 cup (107 grams), or the equivalent of 2 sticks vegan butter.
