  1. Is there an alternative to the coconut oil? I like the idea of making my own vegan butter as I have an allergies to milk, but also have an allergies to coconut. Would love to hear of a substitute to the coconut oil.
    Thank you for your recipes.

    • Hello Linda, thank you for your question. We are sorry to hear about your coconut allergy.

      Unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be an easy swap out for the coconut oil. There are quite different vegan butter recipes online that don’t call for coconut oil, but they involve a totally different set of ingredients.

      We hope this helped and we wish you a lovely day!

    • Hi Lana, thank you for your question and feedback.

      If you do not wish to use hemp oil, you may substitute it with avocado oil.

      We hope this helps and wish you all the best in recreating this recipe. Keep us posted on how it turns out for you.

      Thank you so much. Hope you have a great day!

    • Hi Julie, thank you for your question and interest in our recipe.

      One of the reasons nutritional yeast was used in this recipe was for the color, in which case you could likely use a small amount of ground turmeric to give your vegan butter a more traditional golden look. However, we’re not sure what it will do to the taste if you omit the nutritional yeast as does add some flavor.

      Please let us know if you do decide to give this recipe a try. We’d love to hear how it turned out for you.

      Thank you so much for being here with us. We hope you have a wonderful day!

    • Hi Judy, thanks for your question.

      It is good to know that you have hemp seeds available. However, in order for the hemp seeds to become an oil, it has to be pressed. Thus, hemp oil is obtained by pressing the hemp seeds, not by grinding it. Ground hemp seeds will only result to a powder, and not oil.

      We hope you are able to recreate this recipe and let us know how it went. Good luck and we wish you a great day!

  2. Wow, thank you! I need to get refined coconut oil because I only have ev unrefined, but I can’t wait to try this! Looks like it’ll be really tasty and nutritious!

  3. What I the reason for NOT using extra virgin coconut oil?

    Where can one find “refined” coconut oil that is organic?

    • Hi Lois, thank you for your question and interest.

      The reason not to substitute refined coconut oil with extra virgin coconut oil is that it has a different consistency & may affect the end result of your vegan butter.

      Refined Coconut oil has a neutral scent and flavor which makes it better for recipes where you don’t want the taste of coconut.

      Virgin Coconut Oil boasts a delicious, tropical coconut scent and flavor.

      You can find refined coconut oil in your local health food store or online.

      We hope you found this helpful. If you decide to recreate this recipe, let us know. We’d love to hear how it turns out for you.

      Thank you so much. We hope you have a wonderful day!

    • Hi Annie, thank you for your question and feedback.

      The nutritional yeast was actually used in this recipe for the color, for which you can use a small amount of ground turmeric as a substitute to give your vegan butter a more golden look.

      However, we’re unsure if omitting the nutritional yeast from the recipe will change the taste as it does add some flavor.

      Keep us posted if you decide to recreate this recipe. We’d love your feedback on how it turns out for you.

      We wish you all the best with the recipe and hope you have a wonderful day.

  4. What can be used instead of the coconut oil or palm oil. Can’t have either one any suggestions would be great thanks

  5. I always look for Unrefined – why does it have to be Refined ?? — I think I will rather use the unrefined Coconut oil – without the extra effort to “pretence” !!

    • Hi Erie, thank you for your comment.

      The reason why you should use refined coconut oil in the vegan butter recipe is that if virgin (unrefined) coconut oil is used, the butter is going to have a coconut taste.

      Virgin coconut oil boasts a delicious, tropical coconut scent and flavor while refined coconut oil has a neutral scent and flavor.

      We hope this helps. Keep us posted if you decide to recreate the recipe. We’d love to know how it turns out for you.

      Thank you for being here with us. We hope you have a wonderful day.

  6. I thought that refined coconut oil is not in the healthy catagory. I would prefer a healthy oil. Could not cold pressed extra virgin olive oil work in this recipe? Thanks for your sharing, and for your advice.
