Homemade vegan butter

Use it anywhere you would use butter!

This homemade vegan butter is the perfect plant-based and dairy-free version of butter. It's super smooth, rich and creamy and with the Vibe Blender System it literally only takes a couple of minutes to make, plus some chill time. It spreads beautifully, melts perfectly, will cream into frosting and is great for baking and frying. You can pretty much use it anywhere you would use a regular dairy butter. 

You can find several vegan butter alternatives at the supermarket, but not many of them are healthy. When you make your own, you know exactly what does into it and you can avoid the unhealthy blend of trans-fats, artificial colours, flavours, and preservatives.

Just like traditional butter, homemade vegan butter does get very hard in the fridge. If you want to spread it or cream it up for baking, it’s best to let it soften slightly out of the fridge first. Note, it will melt if left out in warm weather so always store it in the fridge when you are not using it.

vegan butter recipe

To make vegan butter soft and spreadable we use a blend of oils. Mainly coconut oil, which sets solid, plus a portion of mild tasting oil to make it creamier. Only use refined coconut oil which doesn’t taste or smell like coconut. (very important!) Different types of oil will change the flavour profile. If using olive oil be sure to use pure olive oil, as extra virgin olive oil can turn bitter when blended.

Nutritional yeast helps to create the buttery flavour and the turmeric is just for colour.
