Vegan butter (homemade butter recipe)
Updated: Jul 13, 2022
Prep time: 15 minutes
-1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk
-2 tsp apple cider vinegar
-1 cup melted refined coconut oil
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 cup canola oil
-1/4 coconut cream
-pinch of turmeric, optional for color
Get out a medium sized bowl. Add the soy milk and apple cider vinegar, stir and let sit for 5 minutes until it curdles.
While the milk/vinegar curdles, melt the coconut oil in the microwave (or stovetop) until warm, but not too hot. We microwave it in a glass measuring cup, so we can make sure we have exactly 1 cup of melted coconut oil.
To the bowl with the milk/vinegar mixture, add the melted coconut oil, salt, canola oil, coconut cream and optional tiny pinch of turmeric. Whisk well until smooth and pale in color. This will take less than 5 minutes. You could also place everything in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
Pour the mixture into glass containers or butter molds. If you use 1 large container, the butter will take longer to harden in the refrigerator, small molds will be ready faster. Place in the refrigerator for an hour or 2 to set.
