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.

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

Oh my....oh my oh my oh my. SO tasty!!!!
Thank you SO MUCH for this recipe! I haven't had white chocolate in 20 years...and this tastes almost exactly as I remember it (well, except with a hint of coconut..but what's wrong with a hint of coconut? Nothing, I say!!) I think i might add chopped almonds next time, just for fun :D

Amazing texture, soft and creamy like white chocolate! I was afraid I'd OVER processed it as when I processed with maple syrup it came out very 'slippy'. But after being in the freezer it's just perfect!
I'm tempted to add more vanilla next time!
Thanks :-)

I'm also having a problem getting this to break down far enough. I gave up after 20 minutes and put the crumbly mixture into forms and the freezer. I think a picture of what it's supposed to look like when it's done might be good. I'd processed it for so long that the processor was steaming o_O Still didn't look right.

Thanks!

Hi Karen,

This is delicious, didn't get very smooth, so texture reminded me of some sweet halava (or halva). Yum! Can't wait to see the video how to make it smooth. Or maybe it also depends on the coconut? I have no idea what it is but maybe coconut flour would work? Or would it be too dry?

Hi Luka, no coconut flour will react differently since there's a lot less fat in it

The video will give you a good sense of texture :) Glad you enjoyed!

Hi! I tried making this recipe and could not get the shredded coconut to turn into coconut butter. I had it in the food processor for a very long time but only small pieces formed together, and the rest was still crumbly. Any tips? Thanks so much!!

Hi Katerina!! Come on over to the blog or my youtube channel - I filmed a ridiculously long video showing EXACTLY how I make this, specifically to help with questions like these. Here's the link to the exact video:

This is so simple and delicious! I eat gluten free, sugar free, meat, dairy, and egg free, but not entirely raw. I rely on your website quite frequently for easy recipes and have not been disappointed with any I have made so far! This white chocolate recipe is delicious. I can't get enough of it...even though I'm not a fan of real white chocolate :)
