Print Recipe



  • Measure 7 cups medium shredded unsweetened coconut (about 1.25 pounds).   Pour coconut into the Vitamix (or other high-powered blender).  Of course, you can try to use less.  I just found that this is a great amount to get it blending well in the Vitamix to produce a wonderful consistency quickly.
  • Turn the motor of your Vitamix on and quickly work the speed up.  Run the machine on High while using the tamper to keep the coconut moving through the blades (or follow directions for your blender)
  • Run the machine on high for about 1 minute.
  • After a brief rest, process the coconut on High again for up to 1 minute until it is of the desired consistency.
  • Pour into a glass jar for storage.
