Dairy-Free Butter Recipes
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim on May 04, 2008
When made with raw, organic milk, butter can be a healthy food choice, since it's naturally rich in healthy fatty acids, healthy cholesterol, and vitamin A.
If your body can't tolerate high quality dairy butter, you can still enjoy butter by mastering the following dairy-free butter recipes; extra-virgin olive oil and coconut oil are used as bases to create buttery goodness.
Olive Butter Recipe
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1. Whisk sea salt and extra-virgin olive oil together in a small bowl.
2. Pour mixture into a small container and freeze for 4 hours, or until solid.
Use this olive butter just as you would use a stick of dairy butter - you can cut off little squares to add to steamed vegetables, baked sweet potatoes, or any other foods that go well with butter.
This olive butter will stay fresh for several months if stored in the freezer.
Soft Whipped Coconut Butter Recipe
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon light miso
Use a spoon or fork to thoroughly mix miso with coconut oil (solid state). Voila - you have coconut butter that resembles soft whipped butter.
This soft whipped coconut butter will stay fresh for two months if kept in the freezer.
Both of these dairy-free butter recipes are from a living foods recipe book called Ani's Raw Food Kitchen.
