Dairy-Free Butter Recipes

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

Ingredients:

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:

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

Ingredients:

1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon light miso

Directions:

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.

YES!
A fabulous and healthy spread!

I love to whip in flavors.
Add favorite flavors and emulsify in a blender then store in a wide-mouth jar in the refrigerator.
It is spreadable like a soft-spread butter from the refrigerator.
- Garlic & herb
- Agave or honey & cinnamon
- sundried tomato & herb
- parmesan or other cheese and herb if you use dairy
- pesto
Have a variety of flavors stashed ready to spread!
