Make your own coconut butter?

Has anyone tried this? I was searching online yesterday and came across a recipe blog (not low carb) that said all you need to do is process unsweetened shredded coconut in a food processor for 6 - 10 minutes. Not coconut flakes, as they are dried. Keep scraping the sides down, and if needed add a little coconut oil to thin it out.

I am going to try it out. I like the idea of getting the healthy oil, plus the added benefit of the fiber from the coconut meat. Obviously you need to really LOVE coconut, which I do!

I imagine that this would be less expensive that coconut butter, which is super pricey.

I've done this and it works! It takes a loooong time but is so totally worth it.

I've made it with my Kempo Green Power juicer, which separated the fat from the pulp.

I use my VitaMix for this. Also, if you are near an Indian Supermarket, buy Coconut POWDER and it will work much faster (and it's cheaper, too).
