Preparing the recipe for vegan butter

  1. Start by placing the natural soy milk in a saucepan and heat over low heat. As soon as micro bubbles begin to appear on the surface (just before it starts to boil) turn off the heat and add the apple cider vinegar. You will immediately notice the appearance of small flakes because the milk will start to quail.
  2. Take a colander and line it with a clean cloth. Pour the soy milk into it to separate the flakes from the whey . Rinse the flakes left in the tea towel with cold water to eliminate the slightly acidic taste of the vinegar.
  3. In a container with high sides, put the lecithin dissolved in a little warm water, the coconut oil, the soybean oil, the quail soy milk and the salt. Blend everything with an immersion mixer until you get a cream similar in consistency to vegetable cream.
  4. Pour the mixture into a rectangular container, to give it the characteristic shape of a stick of butter, and place in the fridge to solidify for at least 6 hours.
  5. The vegetable butter thus obtained can be used both in the preparation of sweets and savory dishes. Also excellent to spread on rusks together with jam.

Variants to prepare vegan butter

You can prepare the variant with coconut by providing yourself with 10 ml of rice vinegar, 250 ml of coconut milk with at least 18% fat, 35 ml of coconut oil, 10 ml of sunflower oil and 7.5 g of lecithin. The procedure remains the same as for traditional preparation. If you prefer a quick vegan butter, you can use only 3 ingredients: 150ml soy milk, 300ml coconut oil and 30ml lemon juice. The procedure remains unchanged.


Vegan butter can be kept in the fridge for up to 4 days. Alternatively it can be frozen for no more than 1 month.
