Why You’ll Love Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter
Organic raw coconut—that’s the only ingredient listed in Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter. This mouth watering butter is made fresh from whole coconut meat, not just the oil, so it’s a dense and nutritious spread that can be used in place of butter, added to favorite recipes, or even enjoyed alone! Get the entirety of the nutrition that coconuts offer, including fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals, along with a product that’s certified USDA Organic, non-GMO, vegan, and Paleo.
The health benefits of coconut
It’s easy to love that wonderfully exotic, fruity flavor, but the saturated fat content in coconuts has long made them misunderstood. Saturated fat is often associated with clogged arteries, heart attacks, and strokes, but that’s not quite the story with coconuts. They possess fats that are medium-chain triglycerides, also called MCTs. These go right from the intestinal tract to the liver, transforming rapidly into fuel to give the body an instant energy boost.
Coconut meat also offers ample vitamin A, vitamin E, polyphenols, as well as phytosterols, which combine to decrease levels of LDL cholesterol (or bad cholesterol). When LDL cholesterol remains in the blood and skin, this increases the risk for cardiovascular disease and other heart issues. By lowering cholesterol levels, the body will be in better shape and can reduce the risk of these serious problems in the future.
Another great thing about coconut is that it promotes naturally healthy red blood cells that serve the body and improve heart health. Red blood cells that are unhealthy don’t flow through the arteries as well, meaning that the heart has to work harder to deliver oxygen to the brain and throughout the body. Although, when these cells are in tip-top condition the body will feel energized and healthy!
It’s also important to note that coconut aids in weight loss. The fuel it provides increases the body’s metabolic rate, making it easier to burn fat. Coconut is also responsible for promoting healthy thyroids, which are in turn vital for weight management (either gaining or losing it). While it holistically nourishes the thyroid, it’s also responsible for restoring its proper function and makes it easier to lose weight.
For those who are concerned about diabetes, there’s no need to worry about a blood sugar spike with Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter. MCTs go straight to the liver and are instantly transformed into energy, so it won’t cause a sugar high (or an impending crash).
Coconut butter vs. coconut oil
For vegans, coconut oil is an easy substitute for an item such as butter, but it’s not quite ideal due to its oily content. Because of this, using it as a spread or substituted into baking recipes doesn’t really offer the same effects that butter can. Often, coconut oil will weigh foods down and make them feel more dense, but that’s not to say that coconut oil is bad. In fact, it has many of the same benefits as coconut butter.
Since Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter is made from coconut meat, and not just the oil of a coconut, the benefits are magnified. Part of the contents of coconut butter certainly is oil, but it has a lot of other natural coconut goodness in there as well. Not to mention coconut butter is easy to spread, making it a great way to satisfy that butter fix in a non-dairy way.
Recipes to try with Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter
Ready to jump right in and use Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter, but not sure where to begin? Well, a good starting point is simply using it as a butter substitute, whether it’s in your favorite cookie recipe or on a piece of toast. Coconut butter is also a wonderful addition to smoothies or creamy sauces that could use some extra health benefits. Try a few of Thrive Market’s favorite ways to use Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter and be amazed with it’s versatility:
Kids will love this healthy take on a traditional strawberry shake! With added pomegranate powder it provides plenty of vitamin C, and a tablespoon of Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter gives just a hint of coconut along with its healthy fats.

Is there anything better than a fresh loaf of banana bread right from the oven? Only a fresh slice that’s been smeared with a bit of Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter. It’s a perfectly decadent and gluten-free treat that will offer irresistible banana flavor along with the crunchy texture of walnuts. Since this recipe calls for almond flour, it has incredibly light texture and keeps the loaf nice and moist.
Looking for a breakfast bar that isn’t loaded with artificial ingredients or added sugars? Thrive Market has a recipe right here: mouthwatering spices such as nutmeg, cardamom, and vanilla feel instantly warming and give these bars a flavor similar to cookie dough. Use Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter in place of coconut oil for an even more intense flavor. These bars are Paleo, vegan, as well as gluten-free, and if you skip toasting them then they’re also raw.
Normally dessert isn’t the first meal of the day, but these little breakfast cookies pack in essential morning nutrients while also being convenient to take on-the-go. A little bit crunchy, a little bit chewy, and loaded with flavor from walnuts, cashews, almonds, as well as some fruits like goji berries, mulberries, and golden berries. Instead of using coconut oil in this recipe, opt for Artisana Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter and bake these the night before so they can be eaten on the road, or brought for a snack at work.
Reviews For Organic Raw Vegan Coconut Butter

What a treat! AND healthy?!
I personally like it better than regular butter, and of course it's much healthier - contains lots of fiber, and I have recently heard that the saturated fat in coconuts is "short chain", so it is better for you than that found in butter and other animal products. No need for refrigeration. What more can you ask for?
My husband loves coconut butter on his sandwiches in place of mayo and this is a great brand. It stays more solid in hot weather and doesn't get too think in cooler weather. Great on toast too!
You know how some stuff is just too palate-pleasing? That's this product. Tried hiding it. It's voice is LOUD. Yum.
Very good quality and timely delivery.
Since we are to eat more coconut oil, I find this 'butter' a daily treat that is so good I could eat the whole jar in one sitting. :-)
While I eat some just off of a spoon, most of the time, after blending butter very well, it is solid enough to go on bread. I spread it on the WASA bread which I also buy at Thrive. You can then top it with a jam or best with the raspberry preserve also available at Thrive or other topping of choice.
Crack in a jar!
This stuff is soooo addicting! I have to measure out 1/2 a tablespoon and then hide it in the back of the pantry. It's delicious and I love the high quality of it. I like it as a dessert/treat.
Tastes so good
I had tried another brand of coconut butter before and couldn't stand it. I assumed that's what all coconut butter tasted like and couldn't understand why people liked it. I decided to give Artisana a try and am so glad I did. The texture is perfect (so smooth and creamy) and the taste is divine (and I never use that word!). I eat it by the spoonful when I need a boost of healthy fats (or when I'm craving sweets).
I have used coconut oil for years, but was looking for something substantial that you could just eat out of the jar for quick energy, or for protein. This coconut butter fills the bill wonderfully! It is so tasty, easy to use, and satisfying. I love the convenience of it. I also love that it arrives at my door very quickly, and very securely packaged. I am so glad I discovered Thrive Market. It is the best, with the best products.
Thank you so much!
i love this pure product .
i put a spoonful in my coffee every morning.
It's almost gone. I need to order another...or two.
it is really good. I am eating this as after lunch.
looks like I end up over eating it.
This is a perfect snack. Slightly sweet and nutty, and healthy fats.

Raw coconut butter is absolutely fantastic right out of the jar! Makes green smoothies taste incredible, and is great to spread on crackers.
- Louetta Dammann
Love it.I'll keep buying that product.
This is a life-saver for myself and my teenage kids! We're all on a version of a Paleo diet including no dairy or sugar. This is sweet and can be used in so many ways to create delicious desserts!
I knew this product would be firm, since it is a coconut product. I scoop out the amount I want, microwave for a few seconds and voile' perfection. I like it right out of the spoon.
Thought it would be a bit more solid instead of creamy. placed in refrigerator to harden up to use of as a viable spread.
This coconut butter is so good! A small teaspoon of it is all I need to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings!
So far I have used it in my coffee.
Love this stuff
Wonderfully nutritious and great tasting food. It'd be nice if it was less expensive in general, thrive has the best price available, however.
This stuff is addicting
This my new favorite sweet indulgence. There's no added sugar and its so creamy.
This is. Hands-down. The most indulgent thing I've tasted since. Fois Gras....omg
Slightly sweet (from the coconut meat), creamy, and delicious! I made some chocolate "truffles" with this and a little raw cacao (and a few other ingredients) - so, so good.
I love this stuff
Rich and satisfying, this stuff really hits the spot--right out of the jar, on bananas and in smoothies. No oil separation in the two jars I've had, so didn't have to spend time heating and stirring when I first opened them. BTW, I prefer this Artisana coconut butter more than Coconut Manna (which for me required a lot of heating and stirring).
This is my favorite coconut butter. The taste is really good
Very nice taste.
This stuff is a perfect afternoon treat. This brand has such a great taste and I love the glass jar!
- Jessica Suazo
This was my first coconut butter experience. I loved the taste and texture and was also glad the container was glass. Perfect!
Sweet and Delicious
Out of the jar, it has a dry consistency. If you want to spread it on something, simply heat a spoonful in the microwave. It will then have a nice, creamy consistency. I use it to my chocolate fat bombs on my ketogenic diet. Awesome! The flavor is amazing and it is naturally SWEET. You really don't need to add any sweetener. I have purchased this brand several times and will continue to do so. Love this coconut butter!
Absolutely THE best coconut butter ever!
I really like this coconut butter! It can get kind of dry after a while but it adds really nice taste and texture to burgers and vegetables.
Just got my very first order of coconut butter and I can't believe I hadn't tried it until now. I can't compare it to other brands yet, but I love this stuff. It doesn't really spread at room temperature, but I've just been eating it by the spoonful. It's a satiating and lasting energy boost between meals when I can feel my blood sugar getting low. In the past I'd often eat coconut oil at those times, now I go for the butter
Great for smoothies
This is not sweet, just pure coconut. Taste great in smoothies and as far as consistency, just nuke it for 1-2 minutes to make it more pliable. it says that right on the jar.
I can't even imagine not having this for my morning smoothie!!!
I have been a fan of coconut oil for different uses. But this coconut butter is even better in smoothies - more of the coconut flavor than just the oil. It gives a full round taste and is so satisfying. And the coconut butter has many more of the nutrients, such as fiber, which coconut oil does not have. Mmmmm, good.
I add a teaspoon of coconut butter and some cinnamon to my morning coffee. It's Delish. I bet it would make smoothies taste amazing as well.
Love it, great place for health food
Love this product! I make a chocolate, almond butter, coconut butter fudge with this. Yummy!!
Not my fave
Crumbly and a very strong flavor. Tried it on toast, prefer coconut oil...may be just a preference.
Raw vegan goodness!
This coconut butter is amazing! The flavor is not overpowering so it works well on almost anything. I use it in my smoothies, in stir fry and sometimes just eat it straight from the jar.
Trying to spread it over toast was not very easy, however. At times, the butter would harden to a coconut oil-like consistency, preventing it to spread smoothly. This was slightly frustrating as I had to warm it up and stir before I used it on bread.
- C. Kelley
Love this stuff.
Tastes wonderful, great to make no cook, healthy, treats, and organic. Been an favorite of mine for several years.
Delicious with Indian Food
I was a little skeptical about using coconut with my Indian food but this stuff was fantastic. I cooked the eggplant in the coconut oil and than added my sauce after. It added a buttery flavor that was very yummy. Non-GMO and Organic- cant beat it.
What I didn't enjoy was the hardness of the product. I had to put it in a hot water bath in-order to soften it up and be able to scoop it out. A minor issue just, worth take a star off. I would buy this again.
- Edward Lindsey
Dry and intense, would prefer coconut oil on my toast for sure.
Delicious and raw! Much creamier than the roasted coconut kind.
Make sure you keep it stirred up and I like to keep it in my bedroom which is the coolest room in the house so it maintains a thick, spreadable consistency.
I have a spoon full 1-2 times a day. I really like it. Quite different taste from coconut oil.
Artisana has changed from 16oz to 14oz jars. So sad... you should change your picture.
- Thrive User
This product has an amazing flavor. I put a tablespoon in my morning coffee and it gives me amazing energy as well for my HIIT.
Recently during a hot weather spell it softened to the point of becoming something you might eat out of the jar like peanut butter!
