Coconut butter is my new favorite snack. So just what is coconut butter or coconut cream? Coconut butter/cream is dehydrated coconut, preferably freshly dehydrated coconut flakes, that is put into the food processor/vita mix and blended to form a liquid cream. It can be used on so many different foods. Coconut butter is like coconut oil. It is solid in cooler temperatures and in warmer temperatures it is liquid. It can be stored in a pantry. If you would like it to be a little runny (as shown in the picture), just heat it slightly. I like to drizzle coconut butter over fresh berries. It is also great as an icing on your favorite cookies or cakes.
