Confession: I was a late coconut butter bloomer.
That’s a thing in the paleo world, I’m pretty sure. But you see, when I’d come across coconut butter or coconut manna in the stores in the past, I wasn’t totally convinced that it was worth the cost. And I wasn’t even 100% sure it was, to be quite honest…
I assumed it was like cocoa butter: solid and rich and expensive, used only here and there. But when I dreamed up my paleo chocolate dipped coconut bites, I somehow knew coconut butter would be just perfect in them. I made a batch with 1 ingredient and a few minutes, and I was converted for life. Hands up, I surrender, have me forever, you win, coconut butter. ?
So when strawberry season rolled around this year, I just had to combine the two. Creamy, rich coconut butter with bright, juicy strawberries? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! We kind of love strawberries in our house. Need proof?
Leo ate the green part at our Whole30 picnic. And then again on Mother’s Day. And then again at grandma’s 60th birthday party… He’s kind of really into “stah-bees,” and we’re kind of forgetful when it comes to hulling strawberries apparently.
But more important question: Am I a horrible mother for keeping this strawberry coconut butter all to myself? No need to answer that one out loud.
This Whole30 strawberry coconut butter isn’t quite as drippy/creamy as a regular coconut butter and has more of a thick and dense texture. It would be amazing on sweet potato toast, drizzled over a paleo porridge, as a dip for other fruit (super meta), literally straight from the jar, or… do I have an ‘or’?
OR STUFFED INTO CHOCOLATE CUPS WHAT

To make this strawberry coconut butter, I used
Strawberry Coconut Butter
- 4 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
- 4 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
- Place coconut in blender and start processing. Use damper to press coconut down so blender blitzes all shreds. Once all coconut is a consistent powder-like texture, work speed up to high. After 1 minute on high, turn off. Let rest 1 minute. Turn blender back on high and blend 1 more minute.
- Add in strawberries and, using damper, blend until totally smooth.
