What do you recommend eating Nikki’s Coconut Butter with?
A spoon. We wish we were joking but that is usually how we end up eating it ourselves. We also like to combine Nikki’s Coconut Butter with fruit, added to smoothies, blended into coffee, or as a baking ingredient in desserts. Although we tend to stay away from grain-based products ourselves, Nikki’s Coconut Butter goes really well with graham crackers, toast, and similar products.

I opened my jar and there is liquid/white solid on top of my coconut butter. Is this normal?
Yes. Similar to a natural peanut butter or almond butter, there is typically some separation that occurs with Nikki’s Coconut Butter as it experiences temperature changes while it is being delivered to our customers. The difference between Nikki’s Coconut Butter and most other nut butters is that coconut oil becomes solid at a temperature below about 75 degrees. This means that some customers may receive jars with some liquid coconut oil on top and others may receive the same jar but with a white solid coconut oil on top. The separation is natural and will not compromise the quality of the product. We recommend heating the jar above 80 degrees so that the oil becomes liquid and can be stirred in with the rest of the coconut butter. This can be done by microwaving the jar in 20-30 second intervals or a couple of minutes in simmering water on the stove.
Does the texture of Nikki's Coconut Butter vary with temperature?
Nikki's Coconut Butter is sensitive to temperature because the coconut oil solidifies in temperatures below 75 degrees making the overall texture dry and flaky. This is more frequent in winter months due to colder temperatures outside while the coconut butter is being delivered to our customers. To get a creamier texture, we recommend heating the jar above 80 degrees so that the oil becomes liquid and can be stirred in with the rest of the coconut butter. This can be done by microwaving the jar in 30-40 second intervals or heating in double boiler.
