Vegan DIY Butter // Palm Oil Free

Butter!! I love it!! Here is a palm oil free recipe by Miyoko Shinner that I have been using for a long time. In my expericence, it works just like other vegan butter you might find in the store.

Any palm oil you use, should be certified by the RSPO  https://rspo.org/ to help save the homes of the orangutans and other primates.

In the U.S., palm oil is found in about half of the products sold in grocery stores. It can be found in everything from candy to soap and the demand for it continues to grow.

Here is another link to an incredible blog about palm oil. PLEASE CHECK IT OUT.   https://www.travelfordifference.com/list-palm-oil-free-products/ 

Here is another site with some really useful information. https://www.ran.org/issue/palm_oil/

I'm not perfect by any means but I do read my labels and try to avoid palm oil as much as I can. So when I came across this recipe, I had to try it. It's super easy and delicious. The best part, no palm oil. Yes, I said it again.

Let's get to the recipe. Here's is what you will need. 
1 1/2 cups refined coconut oil melted
1/2 cup soy milk
1/3 cup canola or a neutral oil
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp liquid soy lecithin 

Simply put all ingredients into a blender and blend just until everything is combined. The amount of time will depend on your blender. If you have something like a Vitamix, it will only take a few seconds on high.

Transfer to container with a lid and let it set up in the fridge. I use an old butter container. Use as you would with any vegan butter. Enjoy.
