Recipe Directions

  • 1. Place dried, shredded coconut in food processor. Process for a couple of minutes. (It will seem like the coconut is too dry and you will want to add liquid. DON'T DO IT! Just keep processing. Eventually it will start to cling together and get oily-ish!)
  • 2. Once it starts to get quite moist, add all remaining ingredients and process again until almost similar in texture to wet oily peanut butter! Or hummus! You know, all wet! (Or perhaps not QUITE as wet as hummus or PB, a bit crumblier than that, but it should definitely be moist and not grainy at all.)
  • 3. Spoon your crazy white mixture into whatever molds/dish you want and PRESS DOWN FIRMLY WITH YOUR HANDS. (I don't have a lot of fancy cooking molds, so I just threw the mixture into a shallow glass dish and PRESSED IT DOWN FIRMLY with my hands.)
  • 4. Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes. (It will harden and turn into what you see in the pic.)
  • 5. YOU NOW HAVE RAW WHITE CHOCOLATE. Store it in the freezer at all times. Don't eat too much or you'll get a chocolate headache lol.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

Now, this recipe will confuse and confound you. Why? Because it is so easy and bizarre and the coconut transforms into "white chocolate" right in front of your eyes. In fact, you just have to try it to believe me! OK, so as you can see, I call it "white chocolate" even though it is mostly coconut. It does have a coconutty flavor, so do not be surprised about that, but to me it tastes more like white chocolate than like coconut. This raw white chocolate recipe is ridiculously sweet and heavy, so you can really only handle a nibble at a time.

A food processor is definitely required for this recipe. People, when I say that, you must listen to me. Stop blending when I tell you to processs, k? :) And vice versa. Said with love! Because I want you to succeed at this whole raw food thing!

I keep it in the freezer all the time. If you let it get warm, it will get all messy.

TIP: If you are one of those fancy people, you can use candy molds to make all different kinds of white chocolate candy, but all I did was press it into a dish and then cut/break into pieces once frozen. Because I am SO not fancy!

TIP: Leave a few tablespoons of the mixture in its unfrozen state and you can use the crumbly stuff for fun things, like crumbly sweet topping over chopped berries <drool>

CLARIFICATION: I took this picture with coconut oil in the background, but I did not use any coconut oil in this recipe. Sorry to confuse you. I was just uncooking up a storm yesterday and took a whole bunch of pictures at once.

I have a machine similar to a thermomix. Could I make this as easily in a thermomix on a slower sped so that I'm not 'blending' the ingredients but rather 'processing' them?

Yummo!!! Just made these in my Thermomix. I used speeds 3-6 but not good results texturely (still taste devine :-)) Then I found this Raw Coconut Butter recipe blogged which is 3 mins / 37deg / speed 8, just scrape down bowl after 1 min, and crank up to speed 9 in last 30 secs for smooth. Result - smooth and devine. I didn't weigh the 3 cups but think they would be over the 200gm minimum. My next attempt at these will be perfect!!! Thanks Rawtarian :-)

Hi Nujacstar - great tips and thank you for sharing!! I don't use a thermomix, but I bet the same principle applies to regular FPs too. Glad to have you here! Comments like yours make this place an even better place!

Hi Adelle, I have never used a thermomix, but I am familiar with them in a general sense.  They are supposed to also act like a food processor. I say give it a go.

This is a great way to get more coconuts and the taste of white chocolate into your diet.

I used unsweetened shredded raw coconut in my cuisine art. I processed it for more than an hour and all I got was coconut dust and a smokin hot food processor. The texture of my coconut looked like your picture. I'm not sure what I did wrong?

Hi all, if it's not happening within the first 10 minutes it's not going to happen!!  

One thing that might be needed is for you to stop and start quite a bit - and scrape the coconut around inside to ensure that it gets properly distributed.

Okay, so my processor isn't the only one that experienced heating and smoke. =/ Is there a way this could've been prevented or is there a risk of burning out the motor if I try again?

my food process isn't cutting it either, and the coconut I was using was way to big.....sooo.......being determined I am putting it in the vitamix, and it made the coconut shred, and so I added the rest of the ingred. and its now in the freezer! Keeping my fingers crossed, as a newbie to Raw Foods!!!!
Time for a new food processor....

Hi Desirae, It sounds like your food processor is not up to the task. (Or probably, your coconut is not the right type - it doesn't have enough oil in it perhaps). I'd say that you should avoid this recipe unless you try a different type of coconut.

My wife is putting up with my rawterian meals because she knows it is important for her health but I get these strange looks and she says things like "No, that does not sound appetizing but I'll eat it. Strawberrys are in season and I planned to make a raw chocolate covered strawberry recipe I found to make her smile. Now I can double punch with the white chocolate.
It's weird, having done so much with processors, etc., I know I can make your recipe before even trying because the recipe makes sense. I know some folks have had problems but HANG IN THERE! The more time you spend with processors, blenders, stick blenders, (You gotta get one for making mayo.) the better you will become at understanding and dealing with raw foods.
Thank you for this. I already have all the ingredients. Tonight, the Empress will dine on confections only.

I am so grateful for all the amazing recipes that you offer, thank you! I made the white chocolate and can't believe how great it tastes! I am just wondering how you do you get the white chocolate 'white'? Mine was greyish, because of the dark vanilla powder and maple syrup.

I've tried this twice now, i processed the coco nut until it was lovely and smooth but after adding in the other ingredients it ended up all bitty more like hummus not a butter?
Any tips?

hi! Made this and it really tastes good
but it seemed to take forever to blend in my food processor and not sure it was quite the right consistency but i was worried i would burn out my motor if i did it for any longer could I ask you what make of food processor you use as mine is quite basic and am looking to buy a better one
could i use my vitamix instead or would that not work properly

thanks
jacqi
