What is Coconut Butter and What Should You Use it For?

We’ll keep it short and sweet because coconut butter is delicious and if you haven’t tried it, you need to experience the decadence of this sweet, thick ingredient.

Coconut Oil took the health industry by storm a few years ago and with it’s 15 minutes (years?) of fame, completely overshadowed it’s buttery counterpart.

The difference between the oil and the butter is that the oil is squeezed from the coconut while the butter is just made from the meat itself.

Nutrition

Two tablespoons has about 80% of the recommended saturated fat for a day (compared to 73% in dairy butter), but it also contains a much higher amount of protein, carbohydrates, fiber, iron, calcium, and vitamin C.

Coconut butter is densely packed with higher nutritional content, and (typically) much less processing than your average nut-butter. It might be worth supplementing your fiber intake with a high quality coconut butter like that of Tropics Best.

What to Use Coconut Butter For

This is an easy one—you can use it for anything!

In the typical coconut fashion, coconut butter has a hint of sweetness but it’s not as sweet as your typical nut-butters (almond, peanut, etc). Some people add sugar to make it much sweeter (however this is not the healthy option says the dietitian of the house). Without the added sugar, Coconut Butter most definitely serves as a highly nutritious snack to add to your daily regimen. Remember, it has a reach and creamy texture and is very fibrous... So take that into account when you’re cooking with it, but otherwise—carry on with your coconutty self.

Add it to your breakfast oatmeal or melt it into your curry for dinner.

If you’re feeling like you need a little sweet pick-me-up eat a teaspoon of it raw.

Put it in your smoothie or heat it and drizzle it over melted berries.

The possibilities are endless, and we’re challenging you to find as many as you can… and tell us about it!
