11 Ways To Use Coconut Butter | Coconut butter (or manna) is a delicious, versatile superfood that can be easily incorporated into your nourishing diet. Add dairy-free creaminess to your coffee, mix it into a smoothie, or drizzle it over fruit -- there are so many ways to use this healthy fat! You'll be surprised at #10 and #11! | WildlyOrganic.com

If you’re not eating coconut butter, you’re missing out.

That’s a bold statement, I know, but coconut butter is truly one of the tastiest treats around.

Wondering what coconut butter is?

As previously mentioned in our recipe for Dairy-Free Coconut Butter Fudge:

Coconut butter is made by grinding dehydrated coconut meat. It’s different from coconut oil, which is the oil extracted from coconut meat (but doesn’t contain any of the meat itself).

The grinding process turns dehydrated coconut into a thick and creamy consistency, similar to nut butter.

Coconut Oil & Coconut Butter — Similar Benefits

Like coconut oil, coconut butter contains lauric acid, a 12-carbon fatty acid. Lauric acid boasts many health benefits such as reducing inflammation, boosting immunity, and fighting infections.

Choose coconut butter that’s minimally processed in order to reap as many benefits as possible. Wildly Organic’s Coconut Butter is raw and organic (and incredibly delicious).

In addition to being good for you, coconut butter greatly enhances the creamy texture of desserts, smoothies, and hot beverages. Once you start using it, you’ll find many other ways to sneak it into your diet. 😉

11 Ways To Use Coconut Butter

Besides eating straight from the jar (a real treat!), Wildly Organic’s Coconut Butter is a tasty addition to many everyday meals. Here are eleven of the best ways to use coconut butter:

#1 — Stir Into Hot Beverages

Coconut butter enhances many hot drinks, such as coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. Add a teaspoon to your empty mug and pour a hot beverage over the top to melt the butter. Stir to distribute evenly. This adds extra flavor and makes the beverage creamy, without using dairy.

Some folks give up their coffee creamer once they start using coconut butter in their morning cup of Joe!

Give coconut butter a try in our Frothy & Creamy Power Coffee and Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free Hot Cocoa.

#2 — Add To Smoothies

Coconut butter is a great way to add healthy fat to smoothies! It mixes better than coconut oil, which tends to clump easily. Add a tablespoon to any smoothie (like this Spirulina Smoothie) or shake before blending.

This will add extra thickness and enhance the creamy consistency.

#3 — Drizzle Over Fruit

Melted coconut butter tastes great drizzled over a bowl of fruit, especially berries. Or, if you’re not the drizzling type, melt a little in a small bowl and use as a dip.

#4 — Add Creaminess To Savory Dishes

Add 1/8 cup of coconut butter to a pint of warm pasta sauce to create a creamy texture without the need for dairy. Whisk to distribute evenly.

The subtle coconut flavor also lends itself to Southwestern cuisine and adds dairy-free creaminess to dishes like One-Pot Southwestern Beans & Rice.

#5 — Use As A Spread

Coconut butter is a delicious spread for all manner of baked goods. Use it just like butter!

Smear a little over a warm muffin, toast, or slice of banana bread or Christmas-Spiced Orange Bread. It’s almost like frosting!

If you need to avoid nuts for any reason, you can use coconut butter as a replacement for peanut and other nut butters. You can even make a Coconut Butter & Jam Sandwich!

#6 — Add To Oatmeal Or Porridge

Increase healthy fats at breakfast by stirring a spoonful of coconut butter into warm oats or porridge. Why not try it in this Coconut Quinoa Porridge?

#7 — Make Dairy-Free Fudge

The texture and flavor of coconut butter enables you to make fudge without dairy.

It’s quick and easy too; just melt, mix, and refrigerate. Try our Dairy-Free Coconut Butter and Walnut Fudge.

#8 — Use For Raw Treats

Wildly Organic’s Coconut Butter shines in these Raw Coconut Butter Berry Bites.

They are sweet, but only contain a small amount of honey or maple syrup, which makes them a healthy option when cravings arise.

Also, try replacing the coconut oil with coconut butter in these Coconut-Mango No-Bake Treats. Both of these raw treats are perfect when you need a quick snack or treat for school lunches!

#9 — Drizzle On Pancakes Or Waffles

No one’s saying you can’t use syrup… But you can add extra richness (and healthy fat!) to your pancakes and waffles with a drizzle or dollop of Wildly Organic Coconut Butter.

Try coconut butter on our Paleo Caramel Apple Waffles or our Grain-Free Ricotta Pancakes!

Make those pancakes and waffles extra delicious with our coconut syrup, too!

#10 — Give Yourself A Facial & Lip Treatment

This may be the most unusual recommendation for coconut butter yet!

To gently exfoliate and cleanse, apply a teaspoon or two to your face in circular motions. Be sure to apply a little to your lips as well. Wash off with warm water and a washcloth. Follow with moisturizer.

#11 — Share It With Your Dog

Give your dogs the benefits of coconut butter, too!

You can add a spoonful to your dog’s morning or evening meal. Or, let him lick it off the spoon as a special treat! (Dogs can and should benefit from coconut too! Here are the 5 Benefits Of Coconut Oil For Dogs.)

As you can see, there are many wonderful uses for coconut butter. Keep a jar of Wildly Organic’s Coconut Butter in your pantry at all times in order to reap the many benefits of this versatile superfood!
