Made this today for use in an alfredo-style sauce. Just...I haven't had butter in seven years. I can't describe my reaction as anything other than "ecstatic". My partner, who is a low-fat, whole foods vegan (while I am, as well, I still enjoy making things that confuse omnivores, and occasionally, consuming them), was thoroughly deterred by the texture and flavor, confirming for me that this recipe is spot-on ;)

A note to others attempting this recipe: it is THOROUGHLY worth it to invest in a digital kitchen scale, if only because it's a pain in the tail to try and get the refined coconut oil out of the jar, then pack it into a measuring cup, and THEN scrape it all out again (thanks for the weight-based measurement, by the way; very helpful). Let's not forget effectively cleaning solidified oil from said cup-measure. You can get a decent one for between $15 and $25 at your local department/grocery store (I go to Fred Meyer, e.g.). And if, like me, you have a secondary kitchen hobby like micro-batch beer brewing, that scale absolutely will see other uses.

Thank you for giving butter back to me.

Hi Mattie

I really liked reading how to make vegan butter is it possible to have the other ingredients
in grams other than the coconut oil as this already has it grams.

Cheers

I just want to say thank you for sharing this recipe. It has seriously made our lives so much easier and our purses thank you. I make this all the time in big batches and I've found the recipe so flexible that it's a wonder. :) I've given up on the store bought vegan butter and couldn't be happier with my new homemade butter. Thank you for sharing all of the details, too, since it made me more informed and therefore more confident with trying this out.

This is terrible! I have always been a butter lover, but lately I try to stay away from it because it's too heavy on my stomach, I was asked to make dairy free cookies for my grandsons birthday. I needed BUTTER. I made this with virgin coconut oil. Worst thing I could have done. No one could tell there wasn't butter in the cookies. I got rave reviews ! Not only that, but now I look for things to eat that I can butter with this. I plan on using this instead of real butter or margarine. I never liked margarine. And I like the light coconut flavor on toast and sweet potatoes, sometimes even on my finger tip!
I ordered a tub of refined coconut oil to make more but I'm sure I will still be making some with virgin oil.If you're wondering why it's terrible, it's because I like it too much! LOL. Thank you for creating and sharing. Especially something with healthy fats that serves the purpose of something I liked but tried to
avoid. Anyone who is thinking of trying this, do not hesitate! You don't know what you're missing. Oe0bd

this recipe came out FAB the first few times I made it. Blended up the lecithin no problem, tasted lovely, very much like dairy butter.

My old foodprocessor broke though and the new expensive one i got is absolute garbage. I dont have access to liquid lecithin here (well, Fearns, but its not non-gm, so i wont use) and my food processor has done a junky job at dealing with the lecithin granules...i have tried soaking them in hot soymilk for several hours, soaking them in heated oil for several hours, trying to mix them with water to dissolve, to no avail. all the batches ive done with the new food processor have come out like garbage; little chunks of lecithin still in them no matter what i soaked them in first or how long i blended. the last few even separated into 2 layers :/ and some batches came out crumbly as well :/ Not the recipe's fault though, just my crummy food processor :(

Also you list the shelf life as 2 weeks in fridge or a month in freezer. if my stuff has been in the fridge for almost 2 weeks can i pop it in the freezer for another week or 2? Is a month the max shelf life in freezer? Thanks

I love, love, love your butter making methods, chemistry and creativity; however do you have any of the vegan butter recipes with a complete list of instructions and ingredients that use the almond milk instead of soy substitutes, and that use non-soy substitutes for the other ingredients as well while utilizing psyllium husk?

Can I leave out the lecithin? I have xanthan gum, should I increase that to compensate or should it be fine without the lecithin

Ok, so first off, this recipe is fantastic. It tastes like butter. A little hard to spread, but I'm sure I'll figure out a fix for that (maybe add more liquid oil). So, I can't eat dairy and I can't eat soy, so finding these ingredients was a little difficult. I found coconut vinegar at Upaya Naturals, along with psyllium powder, sunflower lecithin, and some other great finds. I made mine with coconut oil, canola, almond milk, apple cider & coconut vinegar, sunflower lecithin, and psyllium powder. This recipe is super easy and very yummy.

Hey there, I've already said how much I LOVE This recipe here. I'm not on the anti-soy band wagon, but I have a friend who is deathly allergic to soy, so I've been mucking about with how to make this without soymilk. As Mattie has made clear, protein content matters. I tried hemp and homemade almond milk, but neither one curdled very well. So today I tried So Delicious brand Almond Plus, their higher protein Almond milk. It has pea and rice protein added to it, and it curdled almost as well as soy milk. I'm not into selling brands, and to be honest I'm pretty disgusted with how most mass produced non dairy milks are mostly just water and thickeners with very little of the nuts, oats, seeds or whatever they claim to be based on - so I like making my own. But in this case, this product came through for making this butter without soy. I used the unsweetened version and it tastes great.

Also, response to Alexis - if you use all coconut oil it will just be a harder butter. The vegetable oil seems to be there to make it softer. So I think it will work fine, you just might need to leave the butter at room temperature for a little bit to make it spreadable.

I have a weird intolerance to oils (my body can't digest them well) I really can only use coconut oil with out upsetting my stomach. I have a huge problem with canola oil and was wondering if instead of it I could use all coconut oil and it would still come out fine? Thank u!
