Review Detail

Hey there! Thanks for posting this. It was so easy to make! My butter came out tasting more coconutty (which is fine with me since I love coconut). I made two batches. The first batch I made, I followed the directions to a 'T'. and as I said it definately smelled like coconut. The second batch I altered a bit and added less of the coconut oil, 1/4 cup instead of the 1/2 cup. I got the same result. Don't get me wrong, I love it, it's tasty and the texture is great!
Just wondering if I read something wrong...any ideas?

Hi prettyleodia! You're using refined coconut oil right? That's coconut oil that has been filtered to remove all traces of coconut aroma and flavor. If you're using unrefined, you'll get the coconut flavor. I usually have both kinds in my kitchen so I can switch between them if I want coconut flavor or not. This particular Vegan Butter recipe is designed to not have coconut flavor, hence, it calls for refined coconut oil. Good luck!
