How to Make Your Own Coconut Butter

Coconut Oil Verses Coconut Butter
Coconut butter is made from the whole coconut. It has a low smoke point which is good for making candy that requires little to no heat, added to smoothies, or it can even be used as skin moisturizer.
Refined coconut oil is made strictly from the oil of extracted from the meat of the coconut. It has a high smoke point and can withstand high-heat, making it an excellent option for frying or cooking.
Both coconut butter and coconut oil are healthy sources of fat and have many health benefits that you can read all about in this article.
