Butter Alternative, Paleo and Whole30 style

Adapted from Predominantly Paleo's recipe

Someone posted a recipe for Paleo Butter recently, and it sounded so easy I thought I'd give it a go.

It was wonderful in liquid form!!!! However, once it firmed up, the salt seemed to rise to the top and it was like dipping my spoon in a shaker of salt.

NOT good!

Since I plan to use my Butter that I made in liquid form -- over veggies or maybe even in my frying pan (I haven't figured out if I want to try that or not), it's no big deal as I can just stir it up and it'll be fine.

What I wound up doing is making a double batch and using just a PINCH of salt.  Pinch as in grabbing a small amount of salt between your thumb and forefinger and putting a little in the container you're making it in.

OR....what I just did was I made a double batch and used 1/4 tsp of salt and that seems to be just about right.

So here is my final modification for the recipe:

4 Tbsp full fat coconut milk
6 Tbsp olive oil -- this can be light olive oil as well
4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
6 tablespoons avocado oil
1/4 teaspoon salt

Blend it well, until it is completely blended.  Then place in the refrigerator to firm up, or in the freezer for 30-60 minutes.

  1. 3 Studies SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually get rid of fat by eating coconut fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medical magazines are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
