Dairy-Free Butter Spread

A spreadable dairy-free/vegan butter sub made with just a handful of ingredients. Be sure to read Notes for tips!

Ingredients

  • 5 Tablespoons Refined coconut oil Solid state
  • 1.25 Tablespoons Water Room temp
  • 1/3 Cup Neutral oil Sunflower or Grapeseed are great
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Sea salt More/less to taste
  • OPTIONAL: 1/8 Teaspoon Turmeric For color

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer. With whisk attachment, beat on medium speed for about 3-5 minutes, until it looks like custard.
  • Pour into container and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, until firm but spreadable.
  • Store leftovers in refrigerator. Butter will remain spreadable, even after chilled.

Notes

Be sure to use *refined* coconut oil (jar will say so); if coconut oil is in liquid state, refrigerate until solid state before proceeding with recipe.
Turmeric adds color but is optional.
Start with a small amount of salt and add more based on taste!
Do not use this as a substitute for butter in recipes as the ratio of total fat to saturated fat will not sub well.
