I love to mix flavored butters. Over the years I’ve made dozens of different flavor combinations to slather on veggies, meats, breads, you name it. But if you’re trying to limit or eliminate dairy products it’s “bye-bye” butter. When I came across these recipes for Coconut Butter Spreads I was really intrigued and decided I had to try it out.

There are so many benefits from adding coconut oil to your diet. Check out this article on 28 Science-Verified Health Benefits if you’d like to learn more. If you’re unfamiliar with coconut oil and/or just don’t care for the taste of coconut, these spreads can easily be made with refined coconut oil which has no aroma or flavor. Organic coconut oil with no aroma is available for purchase at Brookview Wellness.

The hardest part was deciding which flavor to make first! On my last trip to the grocery store I couldn’t resist buying a pint of strawberries so I decided to try the Simple Strawberry Spread. Ohhhh Yeah. With a blender or food processor this takes less than five minutes to mix up and is a perfect substitute for jelly or a sweet spread on your gluten-free or whole grain bread. Now I can’t stop thinking about all of the possibilities…Cinna-Banana on a sweet potato…a savory herb and citrus on chicken, fish or a big plate of zoodles…I salivate at the thought! There will definitely be more experimenting with these Coconut Butter Spreads! I would love to hear your thoughts and ideas. Any flavor combinations that you might try?
