Vegan butter! My quick and easy plant based version of real butter that tastes incredible! Whips up in 1 minute to buttery perfection. Perfect to spread on toast, for baking and cooking. Add to any recipe requiring dairy butter. No Palm oil, nut free 



For vegan butter:

See notes section for soft butter recipe, soy free options and more substitutions.


Have your butter molds ready: a glass container with lid, plastic or silicone molds. If using smaller molds set on a baking tray

  1. Add soy milk to a bowl with vinegar. Set aside to curdle 5 minutes or so (turns into vegan buttermilk) No need to stir 
  2. Partially melt coconut oil in microwave 25-30 seconds. It cannot be hot or warm
  3. Now add all ingredients to your blender. I use a high powered one (Vitamix blender) Blend on high for 1 minute, and yes I time it. Should be thick and creamy
  4. Immediately pour into butter mold(s) and place in your freezer to set up. Once butter has set (20 minutes for smaller molds and and hour or more for 1 large glass one) Store covered in fridge for 2 weeks or so and can be frozen for up to 3 months. For step by step photos, Tips, FAQ, serving suggestions see above post


  • For soft vegan butter (spreadable tub style): use 3/4 cup coconut oil and 1/2 cup oil. 
  • For cultured vegan butter: use plain unsweetened vegan yogurt. My preference is Silk Coconut Yogurt. 
  • For vegan theatre popcorn butter: use virgin coconut oil (tastes like coconut) Absolutely YUMMY!! 
  • For soy free vegan butter: use pea milk or oat milk and replace soy lecithin with sunflower lecithin 
  •  I have tested this recipe with tahini, almond and peanut butter and I prefer the flavour of sunflower butter. The others were extremely tasty too though! 
  • If using this butter for frying I recommend medium not high temperatures as it could burn at high temps do to the addition of seed butter. Or just omit the sun butter completely if using for certain recipes. 
  • I do not like canola oil or olive oil for this and have not tried avocado oil
