Chocolate Coconut Butter Spread

Recently, we ordered a large amount of nuts, and dried fruit and such in bulk from a local company in Montreal. While living in Texas, access to bulk items at Whole Foods was so easy, but there is sadly nothing like that here in Montreal that I can find. It actually worked out because a local company is giving us a great deal on all the foods we buy. If you have never tried dried pineapple, you have no idea what you are missing. It tastes like candy.

One thing, I made sure to purchase was shredded coconut. You should see the bag of coconut a flakes presently taking up space in my kitchen. I see lots of Homemade Coconut Milk and coconut butter in my future.

I was inspired to make some fresh homemade coconut butter to have handy in the fridge when a recipe called for it. Have you seen the price of one jar of raw coconut butter? It is ridiculously expensive, considering it is just plain old coconut. It is so easy to make- just like my homemade coconut milk.

I think this chocolate coconut spread could easily be used in so many different ways. Perhaps place in  the freezer in a square dish for some chocolate fudge, or spread it on some raw bread or just regular bread. You could also use it as raw pie filling. Why not  try it in my Chocolate Coconut Bars? The possibilities are really endless. I personally just ate it right off the spoon, but that’s just me.

How will you eat it?

    This looks so delish! I’ve been using coconut oil for all my cosmetics, but haven’t cooked with it yet. Need to get on that!

      Coconut oil is one of the best oils to cook with as well as make treats with. I use raw cacao powder, dates and coconut oil and make chocolate. Put in the fridge or freezer and you have a chocolate bar!

    Mm I love coconut butter… and everything is better with chocolate! Never would have thought to put bananas in it – it probably doesnt last very long that way? (then again I bet I’d eat it all before it had a chance to go bad).

    • Good Girl Gone Green June 6, 2012 at 10:29 am #

      You could probably add dates to sweeten instead and it would last longer.BUt like you said you will probably eat it all quickly anyways! lol

    It is dried shredded coconut. I buy it in bulk from a local Montreal company, but I use to buy it at Whole Foods when I lived in the USA.

  19. Good Girl Gone Green June 6, 2012 at 10:33 am #

    Add the banana or add date paste (water and dates) to sweeten the mixture. I added a banana to be different but dates will make it sweeter. Not sure why the food processor didn’t work. A high powered blender does work better though.

  20. Pamela June 7, 2012 at 8:52 am #

    I am pretty sure there is a sin involved in this recipe. Ha! Looks delicious. I am eager to try it. And dried pineapple is amazing. I agree–like candy.

  21. Gina June 7, 2012 at 11:03 am #

    I just have to laugh when I pick the posts from the same people in blog hops. Visiting you again and would love to try this recipe. Have a good day!

    My new addiction- dried pineapple!
