The other day I noticed that the “best by” date was quickly approaching on this coconut butter. N tends to ignore expiration dates and such but I am strangely obedient when it comes to these things, so I’m trying to find ways to use it up.
This weekend I actually whipped up the coconut fruit dip from the Artisana website. The dip is just a cup of coconut butter blended with fruits, lime juice and some sweetener. The fruits I blended in were some strawberries, peaches and papaya (hence the orange hummus-y color).
Once blended up, it’s like a fruity-coconutty frosting! We schmeared it all over our weekend pancakes and of course, as the recipe instructs, I’ve been dipping fruit in it and enjoying it that way too.
After this jar of coconut butter is used up, I plan to try and make my own.
