Creamed coconut (coconut butter) always comes in two layers
Creamed coconut (coconut butter) always comes in two layers

Creamed coconut is pure ground coconut meat in its own natural oil. It naturally comes in two layers as pictured above, the white oil layer at the top and the solid yellowish layer at the bottom. Before initial use, you need to warm the jar in hot water as below to soften the contents to mix the layers back together.

The contents will solidify again below 26 ºC, but you should be able to just scrape out or break off the required amount with a fork for subsequent use.

Do you see the coconut oil layer at the top melting in the above picture? It is now soft enough to be stirred with a fork.

Stir vigorously with a fork or a handheld mixer

Stir vigorously with a fork or handheld blender/mixer. You can even empty all of it into a food processor for a perfect smooth finish. Lumpiness doesn’t matter for now because we are going to melt the ingredients together anyway.

Creamed Coconut being poured
Now you can pour creamed coconut into a saucepan

Put creamed coconut, coconut oil, coconut sugar and carob (or cocoa) powder into a saucepan and heat just enough to melt to combine the ingredients.

Carob powder is seen at the top. You may need to use a handheld blender/mixer in the saucepan if carob isn’t dissolving smoothly. Cocoa powder will dissolve much more easily.

All the ingredients are now combined and smooth

When all the ingredients are well combined and smooth as above, it’s time to pour the mixture into a dish.

Now put the dish in the fridge to set. If you are in a hurry then the freezer will do a quicker job.

A thin coconut oil layer will rise to the top

Don’t worry – a thin white layer will rise to the top because it has so much coconut oil in it. It may not look that pretty but it’s the taste that matters (in this case anyway).

Coconut Power Slice cut
Coconut Power Slice is easy to cut with an eating knife

You can easily cut the slice with an eating knife. It is best kept in the fridge especially on a hot day. Eat as is, or sprinkle some desiccated coconut on top for even more coconut.

Be careful not to eat too much at a time!

Serve straight from the fridge and enjoy.

Caution: Coconut Power Slice may taste good but don’t eat too much at a time, especially if you body is still getting used to coconut oil. After all, this slice is very close to eating straight coconut oil…

  1. Timely recipe. Just bought a handheld blender yesterday (christmas present to me) and noticed the creamed coconut in the fridge I’d forgotten about the other day. We are over those dreadful sugary snack bars you get at the supermarket.

    1. We agree. We find that treats we can buy at the supermarket these days are mostly too sweet and unhealthy.
