Soft Butter Spread (Stays soft even when cold)


Soft Butter Spread

This is a healthy way to have a cold spreadable butter. Use coconut oil if you intend to use this for cooking, to avoid creating trans fats. You can store this in your refrigerator and still spread it on your toast.

Please do not use margarine. It has never been good for us!


SOFT BUTTER SPREAD Recipe:

Yield: 3 cups

Ingredients:

1 lb (4 sticks) real salted butter, softened (preferably organic)
1 1/2 to 2 c. healthy, light tasting liquid oil *
1/4  t. sea salt or BioSalt, or to taste (recipe on this blog)

Method:

In a blender or food processor, process the softened butter and 1 1/2 c. oil of choice, adding more oil as needed, until smooth and creamy. Another option is to use a hand mixer. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge. Recipe easily doubles.

* Examples of healthy oils than may be used: Fractionated coconut oil, GOLDEN OIL (recipe on this blog), chia seed oil, Cranberry seed oil, hemp seed oil, avocado oil, or extra light tasting olive oil.


Note: Do not bake, saute, or cook with anything but coconut oil and/or real butter (or animal fat) because they become unhealthy when heat treated. Even when healthy oils are heated below their smoke point, they still oxidize and turn into trans fats (not good).



Enjoy,
