Perhaps after reading through them, you will find some inspiration for playing around in the kitchen, making your own creations!

Raw Coconut Butter –

  1. I will often add this to soft spreadable cheeses with a ratio of 2 cups of nuts/seeds to 2 Tbsp of coconut butter.  Any more and it will be too firm.
  2. It creates a spreadable texture, and when used in moderation, it won’t affect the overall flavor of the recipe.
  3. Coconut butter is also referred to as coconut manna.
  4. Coconut butter differs considerably from coconut oil. Click (here) to learn the difference between the two.

I have quite a “spread” of nut and seed based cheese recipes on my site. Be sure to visit them (here).
