Recipe by wildheart

If you are looking for a butter alternative that tastes good and doesn't' cost a fortune, this is for YOU. It is made with coconut oil as a main ingredient, so you can get the health properties of this tropical oil. However, if you don't like, don't use, or can't find coconut, this can be made with any food grade oil.

Top Review by fluffitude

Compared to butter, coconut oil (virgin, unprocessed) has been found to have a myriad of health benefits. Grumblebee may want to do a little reading before basing her opinion solely on the fact it's classified as a "saturated" fat.


  1. Whip butter in bowl (hand mixer is best).
  2. Whip in buttermilk and oil, alternating, until incorporated in butter.
  3. Chill and serve.
