Coconut Butter Bars – Strawberry & Coconut

An easy dessert made with coconut butter and strawberries.  You could use other berries or even nuts if you wish.

To make coconut butter is as simple as making a nut butter.  Simply throw some raw dried shredded coconut into the food processor and blitz until you have a butter spread.  Or you can simply purchase a jar of it!  Coconut is one of my favourite superfoods as it has a low glycemic index, a high fibre content and contains lauric acid which has antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties.   It also improves nutrient absorption!

Making these bars are just so easy and you can play around with the flavours.  I uses strawberries here, but raspberries would be equally as delicious.  Perhaps add nuts too? Just ensure that you keep it in the fridge to ensure their firmness.  Just as you would coconut oil chocolate bars.   The option of adding an additional sweetener is entirely up to you as the coconut itself can be sweet enough.

Oh, the Brazilian in me is melting for these! I’ve seen coconut butter at the store, but did not grab it, as the price made me think twice… now I think I need to re-consider my decision 😉

Hi Sally! You could always make your own coconut butter..it’s much cheaper! Although there are some lovely products on sale too…!
