Oh! Yeah. I would think so. It's the fat in it that's beneficial. So, the fat is also in coconut milk and raw coconut as well as dried coconut. All that stuff is great. Coconut water doesn't have any fat, but the watere is still healthy for different reasons.
LOVING coconut! emoticon

I guess I didn't rewrite the question well - perhaps a better way to phrase it is: does coconut butter have the same benefits as coconut oil?

Yes. It still contains the meat. The fibre.

Hmmm... I don't know the answer to your question. I will defer to Laura, (Fit_Artist) she has read the book on it.

So Laura is coconut butter the same as coconut oil, except that it has the meat in it?

You can go to the oh she glows website that I listed in my post - it has pictures of making the coconut butter as well as pictures of it spread on toast with jam...looks sooo good!

This looks so yummy!

Questions:
So from my understanding coconut butter is the same as coconut oil correct but the butter has the coconut "meat" mixed in? And is yours solid at room temp?

Thanks!

Loren

I just started a new coconut oil team for anyone interested. The weight is FALLING off of me and I've been eating like a pig. Although a healthy pig. Down 5 pounds this week eating around 2000 calories per day...

Love that stuff. I'll be getting a couple fresh coconuts from my coop delivered next Thursday exactly for making coconut butter. YUM!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Well, since we are having all of this talk about coconut oil, I thought I would add this "recipe" on how to make coconut butter. It is hardly a recipe...all you do is take coconut flakes and put it in a food processor or a vitaix-type blender and mix. Easy.

Here is my source:

ohsheglows.com/2010/06/22/homemade-c
oc
onut-butter/


I love Oh She Glows. Great recipes. Thought I would share this with y'all.
