Hello Angels,

I love everything about coconut. Coconut fragment, coconut oil, chocolate with coconut, etc.

Recent years, coconut oil is very popular. We know wellness and health benefits of coconut oil but most of us don’t know anything about coconut butter.

The two products look similar but each has different characteristics. First time I saw coconut butter on the shelve of organic market. Later, I saw in a cake recipe on Youtube. I decided to make a research about it.

In today’s post I would like to talk about everything about coconut butter and difference between coconut oil and coconut butter.

The difference between coconut butter and coconut oil

  • Think of coconut oil and coconut butter like almod butter and almond oil – two distinct products used for different purposes.

  • Coconut butter is the pureed meat of a coconut. The biggest difference between coconut butter and coconut oil is the fiber content.

  • Coconut butter doesn’t contain only oil but also fiber and other nutiritions. It has creamy and thick texture that is rich in coconut flavor.

  • There is no dairy in coconut butter. It is completely plant based.

  • You can use as top , drizzling over a fruit or add baked goods such as banana bread and cookies.

  • Coconut oil is extracted from the coconut meat.
