I have been listening to this song on repeat lately and it has inspired me to... make coconut oil? No, its not a necessary part of the process but it is still very important. I cannot stress that enough. I mean...
"Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece /
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash."
She just gets me, you know? Life hack alert, this recipe is super easy. It has one ingredient. Thats right, just one. Shredded coconut. So here it is:
- Two bags of organic unsweetened shredded coconut
- No second ingredient but that bullet point looked lonely so...
Just toss the shredded coconut into a food processor until it becomes smooth and creamy. This should take approximately ten minutes (did you know that you can listen to the above song three times in that period? Weird that I know that.) The coconut oil should have become a smooth, thin, fluid consistency. And thats it! Transfer the oil to a mason jar and allow it time to set. I let mine set overnight.
Coconut Butter has medium high-heat index, which makes it great replacement for butter or other oils in cooking/baking. I love baking with it because it has many health benefits- too many to list!
A word to the wise, I suggest making this after a really hard day so you can bask in the feeling of accomplishment you get after totally nailing the recipe! You're welcome in advance.
