Happy New Year!  One of my intentions for this year is to be of service to others.  The best way I can do that is to use my gifts and knowledge.  I have spent the better part of the last decade learning to cook, nourish my body and figuring out how to make delicious foods that are both healthful and good for the planet.

I will be sharing processes, template recipes and how tos on here and on my new Instagram account @routewellacademy!  If you have a specific technique you would like to learn or a recipe you would like transformed into a healthier version please let me know!  I would love to help you on this journey.

Today, I am sharing this delicious coconut butter.  It is as simple as it is delicious.  All you need is a food processor or high speed blender.

First, you measure your shredded coconut and put it in your food processor.


Next, turn the processor on and let it run for about 15 to 20 minutes, stopping every couple of minutes to scrape down the sides.


It is done when it is a creamy consistency and there are no flakes left. 


Coconut butter is great to use in desserts, smeared on toast for breakfast, by the spoonful and so much more!

This method is also great for nut and seed butters like my Cinnamon Almond Butter.


Never stop learning,
