Default Homemade coconut butter

So i've always been kinda a nut fiend. recently i've been buying coconuts instead and eating those. they're not as satisfyingly crunchy, but it's still nice.

i've been trying to make a coconut butter to replace my peanut butter cravings. has anybody attempted this? would baking the coconuts for a bit help? generally i can't get the coconut creamy at all when i just blend it.

I believe what you are after is what most refer to as "coconut cream".

that does sound legit for making the coconut cream. i prob need a juicer for that instead of what i'm doing now. But at the store recently i've seen companies selling coconut butter. it's basically still got all the white junk from the coconut blended up into it as opposed to being separated like in creams or just coconut oil. thus it's got more of a nut butter consistancy

lots of coconut info here!!
This coconut butter is way creamy and less oil-like!

What's the difference between coconut butter and coconut oil info here.
