So I am going to make coconut butter today in my Vita Mix and see how it tastes and spreads in comparison to expeller pressed coconut oil. We use Tropical Traditions Coconut products and are pleased with the value and quality.


All you do is put the dehydrated coconut flakes in the Vita Mix and let it whirl it into butter just like any other nut butters. I'm guessing for maybe 3 mins ( while tamping it down) for 16 oz. of flakes.

Studies have shown that coconut oil has a "thermogenic effect", which means that it raises your body temp, thus boosting your energy and metabolic rate. While no studies have investigated how coconut oil affects the thyroid gland specifically, the fact that it raises body temp and causes weight loss indicate that it supports thyroid function.
