Ingredients Glossary > Glossary > coconut butter

Gluten-free, allergy-friendly, and whole foods ingredients are sometimes confusing. Everyone knows what carrots are.  But what about arrowroot starch, coconut oil, umeboshi vinegar, or miso?  Here is a growing glossary of ingredients that may be slightly off the beaten path.

Coconut Butter

Made from the flesh and oil of the coconut, coconut butter is creamy, rich, and delicious, and suitable for raw, gluten-free, and vegan diets. It is wonderful used in many recipes, from cookies to fudge to candies and truffles, as well as used in soups and savory dishes. When mixed with water, it creates a natural coconut milk, and it is wonderful in shakes and smoothies. It is high in fat, fiber, and protein. I like Tropical Traditions and Artisana brand. You can also make your own by putting unsweetened, shredded coconut in a food processor and processing on high for about 15-20 minutes.
