DIY: Coconut Butter plus Lemon Coconut Truffle Fudge Recipe

Coconut Butter is a luxury food……it’s silky, creamy and delicious!

Coconut butter is different than coconut oil……What is the difference, you ask???

Coconut Butter uses the coconut meat and is ground into a creamy butter, coconut oil is extracted from the coconut and is 100% oil.  Think about the difference between almond butter and almond oil…..if I can use this is as a metaphor….coconut butter would be comparable to almond butter….it is spreadable, creamy, and has a consistency close to almond butter.  Want to know how to make your own almond butter?  Read about here!!

Coconut Butter is almost the same process as making almond butter!!

Start with 2 cups dried unsweetened coconut flakes….

place in your food processor and blend….

It takes at least 10 minutes of processing before it starts to become creamy and silky.  I processed even longer because I wasn’t satisfied with the texture and wanted an even creamier coconut butter. Process yours as long as 20 minutes to get your desired creaminess!

The end result is amazing!

  1. Oh, yum! Pinned it. Can’t wait to make these. Made your Pinkalicious smoothies this morning for breakfast, by the way. They were yummylicious! Will be linking up to you in a post very soon about the Pinkalicious books that we’ve been reading. 🙂

  3. Can you tell me approximately how much fudge your recipe made? What size dish did you pour it into? I’m hoping to make this recipe to feed a large crowd (100+ bite size pieces) so I’m wondering how many batches I’d need to make. Thanks, looks great!
