I am typically not one to boast or brag, but today, I feel like I have earned a coveted award.

Today marks the happiest day of my frugal frog life! After the Paleo Faileo coconut debacle of last week I have TRIUMPHED!

I found an EASIER and still cheap way to make coconut butter from scratch in the comfort of your own kitchen. All you need is:
A bag of unsweetened dehydrated coconut (I found this in the “special” organic section of Wegmans and I have also seen it at Whole Foods in the Bulk Bins and in the baking aisle). This bag cost me $2.69. Not bad.
Do NOT get the “reduced-fat” option for 2 reasons: 1) It will not successfully turn into butter and 2) Fat is your FRIEND! Do not fear it!
The second thing you need is a BLENDER! Put those food processors away (or at least the mini chops)! The blender is the TICKET!
There are 3 easy-peasy steps to the coconut butter process:
1)      Pour the coconut into the blender
2)      Blend the coconut (I used the “puree” option) for 10-20 minutes depending on the strength of your blender.  Be sure to scrape down the sides OFTEN.
3)      EAT!
Seriously, I am GLOWING! For less than $3 I made my own jar of coconut goodness! Break out the apples and the sweet potatoes because I am going to town!
If you could find the recipe or the process to make any food at home, what would YOU choose?
