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'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

herm jacqi - i had the same problem. I used store bought (in a packet) desicated coconut and i whizzed for a good 10 minutes or so with not much change. it broke it down a bit but certainly didnt turn to butter.. :/ - i used a ninja, not sure and was the best blender. Each time i pulsed i had to scrape down the sides of my jug as it was just whizzing nothing most of the time and each time i removed the lid there was like a smoke (coconut maybe??) - didnt smell electrical, but i too was worried i was going to burn out my motor so gave in and added the vanilla bean paste and honey - but it was still quite 'floury and fluffy' when i put it into the freezer.... herm... think i stuffed up somewhere - or not used the right style of blender. any thoughts rawtarian?

I agree with Vlpanfried. I used fresh mature shredded coconut... Processed, and processed, and processed in the food processor and the constitution of the coconut barely changed! Why do you think? Nevertheless, I finished the recipe but it still tasted very "bitsy" and coconut-ey. I was hanging for chocolate!! :P

I processed this for nearly an hour. At the end my Coconut was like steel cut oats and not at all moist. I think your "dried shredded" coconut is a different product than mine.

Interesting! Sounds like lots of you had the same problem!

The coconut that I used is purchased as "dried, shredded unsweetened coconut" and it looks like this...

That could be fun, Jennifer! Although I think I prefer to nibble on them like candy, methinks!

I love all your recipes, thank you so much! I haven't made the white chocolate recipe and I'm just wondering, would it work if I put in raw cacao?

Hi Sissy, great question! I haven't done it yet myself, but I think adding about 3 tablespoons of cacao powder could do the trick! It might be a bit bitter though, you might need to increase the sweetness a bit if adding the cacao

I also processed mine for awhile and it never got too moist. I just added in the other ingredients and processed. Turned out great! The kids loved it, too :)

(continued) . . . even though I felt like I didn't know what I was doing much of the time. Sorry this is so long; I just wanted to thank you, because I don't know if I would have made it without your wonderful website. I've shared it with so many friends, who are intrigued by our new lifestyle.

(continued) . . . needs. And choosing to start this just as all the summer produce was disappearing didn't help matters! But over and over again, recipes from your website would save the day. Now, we're breathing a sigh of relief as fresh produce is becoming more abundant, we're developing a larger repertoire of raw recipes our kids actually enjoy, and four weeks ago I gave birth to a healthy baby, who was my heaviest to date (9 lb 3 oz / 4.2 kg), proving to me that I did manage to get adequate nutrition, e

These are amazing! I made them as-is this time; next time I'm going to experiment with add-ins, perhaps finely chopped pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries. I'm salivating! Thanks for all the amazing recipes you share! My husband and I just started this raw food adventure last fall. I was pregnant, and we had three kids, ages 5, 3, and 1 at the time. It was a super-steep learning curve for me, what with trying to find recipes the kids liked and trying to make sure I kept abreast of my own increased calorie n

Hi Karen,

Couldn't agree more! It's one thing to love something that took 2 hours to make, it's another thing to love something that took 5 to 10 minutes to make :)

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

Hi Monica, I feel the same way!!! It's probably been about 4 or 5 years since I've had "real" white chocolate. I think it tastes the same too. Definitely has a coconut flavor too, but I am cool with that.

Some small chopped almonds would be REALLY good. Nice texture.
