Make your own vegan butter!

If organic vegan margarine was your “butter choice”, trust me, from today you’ll be blown away by this spreadable vegetable butter.
It’s deliciously tasty, incredibly easy to make, palm-oil/trans-fat free and healthy! And last but not least, you can customize it: you can make it thicker, thinner, add herbs and flavours and if you feel really naughty, try adding a few drops of maple syrup and dark chocolate chips for a sumptuous sweet vegan spread!
Oh, yes, I forgot, it can be used to cook (…just like real butter).

(I developed “my” vegan butter following the original recipe found in Miyoko Schinner’s “Artisan Vegan Cheese” – you can also watch her video on You Tube).

INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cup of refined coconut oil
1/2 cup almond milk (unsweetened)
1/2 cup olive oil (or any other vegetable and mild vegetable oil of your choice)
6 tbsp soy lecithin
salt (optional and to taste)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Combine all the ingredients into a blender and process for 1 minute to ensure that the mixture is properly soft and blended. Pour into a container and let set in the fridge for a couple of hours (silicon moulds are great, as the vegetable butter will pop out easily. As you can see, I used some popsicle silicon moulds…).

PS: I suggest you not to try it before putting it inside the fridge because even soft is tastes really – really! – good! 😉

Store Vegan Butter in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month or wrapped in plastic, in the freezer for up to 1 year.
Make Vegan Butter in large batches and store it in your freezer. The night before baking, transfer it to your refrigerator!

N.B.
Myioko says: In order to make really hard butter
(for puff pastry, croissants, etc.):

Replace ¼ cup of melted coconut oil with ¼ cup melted cocoa butter. Reduce liquid oil by 1 tablespoon. Or you can just decrease the oil by 2 tablespoons.
In order to make whipped “butter”:
Increase the liquid oil by one tablespoon, and process at high speed in the blender for about 2 minutes to incorporate as much air as possible

    • Can you find Gerblé products (https://www.gerble.fr/)? I find it normal supermarket, usually in the gluten free area. It doesn’t have the organic label but it’s gmo free and soy grew in France. (look on amazon as well)
