You will be amazed at how effortless the process of making coconut butter is. It's truly as easy as opening a package of coconut meat, blending it, and scraping down until it is smooth, almost liquid paste. You can add a little salt to make it tastier and if you are having trouble making the coconut paste, add coconut oil, thus speeding up the process. Use this spread anywhere you would use regular butter!
