But plain coconut butter gets even better. This recipe also incorporates antioxidant-rich matcha powder for a sugar-free upgrade. Compared to normal green tea, matcha is high in l-theanine, which may help you stay focused on tough tasks. And with added mental clarity from Brain Octane, this creamy coconut butter becomes a superfood spread you’ll want to enjoy on everything.
Homemade coconut butter: Tips for blending & serving
Homemade coconut butter can be tricky to create, so it’s important to use the right equipment. You’ll need a high-powered food processor (or blender with a tamper) to pulverize the shredded coconut into a buttery consistency. Container size matters, too: Make sure it’s not too wide so your blades can keep chopping the coconut after it reduces in volume. If the coconut alone won’t turn into butter, add the Brain Octane and keep blending — it should move things in the right direction.
This coconut butter makes a delicious fruit dip and tastes wonderful on its own. You can also blend it into smoothies, spread on pancakes or keto bread, or swirl onto keto ice cream for the perfect balance of sweet and earthy flavor.
