homemade margarine!

I'd been browsing recipes for vegan butter for some time, and finally took the challenge. I will never buy margarine again!

this is a mix from the various recipes I've seen:

3/4 cup refined coconut oil (tasteless) melt in microwave until liquid.
2 teaspoon liquid lecithin (I struggled with gel caps- have ordered liquid!)
3/4 cup light oil- I used grapeseed
1/2 cup store bought non dairy milk I used soy creamer
mix 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar in milk/creamer
1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine everything in food processor and whir on high for 3-4 minutes. Pour in container and chill

this came out like whipped butter and held that consistency. The first one I tried more exact from a recipe was hard and had more coconut oil.

I love the slight sweetness from the soy creamer with the slight tart from vinegar.
AND, I got the refined coconut at Walmart 14oz for under $4. I may have to go back there just to stock up on that.

No way! This looks so easy...even for me! I'm going to try it.

Poppy posted a link from Miyoko Schinner that I tried first, that came out hard, like cold butter

http://www.everydaydish.tv/videos/mi...-vegan-butter/
(that's the original recipe from Miyoko)

I wanted it much softer, so changed the proportions and it worked great! And, I used a food processor on high for between 3-4 minutes.
I had these soy lecithin capsules in gel caps from when i much have thought I needed choline or something, they were a b"""h to get out and really sticky/slimy. I have liquid lecithin in an online cart trying to think of other things for free shipping!

I can't post a picture (having an android phone/chromebook OS laptop! don't jive yet...) but it was that easy, and really good! I don't like creamer in coffee or tea, but I'm finding so many used for it now! It gave it a real cream, slightly sweet flavor.

It's supposed to help in baking bread-- to add that chewy-pull texture. I went there for it first and that's all that reviews seemed to be about!
