Wow! I'm inspired to try this. Do you use unsweetened soy milk? Is there any particular brand of soy milk you find works best? (boxed, shelf-stable varieties vs. refrigerated ones, etc?) Thanks!

Plants (including coconut) DO contain cholesterol, but in much smaller quantities than typically found in animal products - http://chemistry.osu.edu/~gopalan.5/file/7B.PDF

Cholesterol in food isn't really the issue either, it's the amount of saturated fat in your diet that matters when it comes to your health - http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Cholesterol/Pages/Introduction.aspx

As with most things, a healthy diet and lifestyle with a few indulgences will not do you any harm, and will probably make you a happier person too :)

I'll be trying out this butter soon, it sounds lush!

I have just ordered the necessary items I will need to make this vegan butter and will be purchasing the chia seeds as a substitute. Very excited to try as although we love Earth Balance we do not want to be using any palm oil. The reviews rate this very highly and looking forward to trying for myself. Thank you.

I gathered the necessary ingredients for this from Amazon.com, and gave it a shot, with the substituted ground chia seeds that another commenter recommended. This is an incredible recipe, and I can't believe how well it mimics the taste of dairy butter. With ingredients like coconut oil, I didn't know what to expect... But the flavor is spot on. So much better than margarine, which I hate.

Two notes are that the recipe makes a small amount, about one or two regular sticks. I tripled it to fit two of the silicone ice trays. Secondly, you should know that using ground chia seeds gives the (otherwise golden) butter a peppered appearance, even though finely ground. Doesn't bother me, though, and worked very well. Truly amazing!

Well this changes EVERYTHING!

I am a new vegan and to be honest the thing I miss the most - the only thing I can't seem to duplicate - is butter. I've yet to try Earth Balance, but have a hard time with the palm oil in it - I love orangutans too much :).

So can someone tell me - what gives this butter it's "buttery" taste? The cider vinegar and the curdled soy milk? I'm just curious.

I have issues consuming unfermented soy, but will make the concession for this delicious recipe!

I'll be definitely making it with the chia sub and the sunflower lecithin (thanks June!).

Any idea if another type of secondary oil - like a nut oil or extra light olive oil - will work with the coconut oil? If no one knows I guess I'll just have to try it out and let you know!

Thanks for this truly LIFE CHANGING recipe!

Buy a vegan milk that does not contain vitamin A Palmitate, which is derived from palm oil.

I went to the market and cannot find either one. I did find fruit pectin. I also see suggestions for agar agar and chia seeds, but I have yet to find those also. I might be able to get chia seeds in a bigger city in Costa Rica, but I'm in a small town and so I have to alter many recipes.
Do you think fruit pectin would work? I do have flax seeds also and a grinder.

Any idea if I could make this with asian soy milk? I'm from asia and I can't find american brand soymilks like Silk.
Is it possible to substitue the lecithin with flax? Considering the fact that the lecithin is used for emulsification, egg (yolks?) are emulsifiers and flax is an egg sub.
Thank you so much! :)

I'm just learning about the Vegan diet... I doubt I'll go all-vegan, but I definitely appreciate and recognize the value. Nonetheless, I didn't know that you could make vegan butter, so thanks, but thank you for an informative and beautiful posting - great pics and structure. :)

YIPEE!!!!!!!!! Chia Seeds AND Agar Agar work so well in your vegan butter recipe...and not coconut flavor at all so tastes like real butter!!!!!!!!!!!...I did not need to go further with Arrowroot or Flax Seeds as I am completely satisfied with Chia and Agar Agar results...Mattie: if it wasn't for your recipe I would have never know the basics for formula/ingredients so I am grateful you posted this recipe... the only change in the Chia Seed or Agar Agar Butter is:
1)...omit the Xanthan Gum. add 3 T. finely ground Chia Seeds (grind almost to powder in spice grinder) or 3 T. Agar Agar Flakes to 2).
2)... Add soy milk. apple cider vinegar. salt. 3 T. finely ground Chia Seeds or Agar Agar Flakes and let sit until curdled (15-20 minutes instead as Chias and Agar Agar have to turn glutinous so it will bind)
4)...add coconut oil (did not put in microwave - left solid). sunflower or safflower oil. Sunflower Lecithin.(I used Sunflower Lecithin as it is healthier than Soy Lecithin for me) and Chia Seed or Agar Agar mixture blending until emulsified. I had to change for my allergy but you Mattie started something good for all who care to listen and experiment for their daily wellness... Blessings...

Owner's reply

So glad this worked out June! I would expect the chia seeds to feel grainy on the palate but maybe not if you grind them way down. Good to know you also had great results with agar. Thanks so much for sharing and I'm so glad you were able to engineer your way to tasty vegan butter!

I did more research for natural alternatives for Xanthan Gum and Guar Gum: this is what most offer: Finely Ground: Chia Seeds. or Flaxseeds or Arrowroot or Agar Agar which are all very good for health effect...I will try each of these including the instant tapioca (even though a thick starch but natural) and be in touch after my experimentation...sounds like a lab kitchen! ha
