Recipe by Hemp New Zealand™


  • 1 cup refined coconut oil
  • ¼ cup Hemp Farm® hemp seed oil
  • ½ cup plant-based milk (at room temperature), we used our hemp milk recipe)
  • 1 Tbs nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • A small pinch of ground turmeric for colour (optional)


  1. Melt coconut oil and let cool down to room temperature.
  2. Place all the ingredients in the blender/tall jar and blend until well combined.
  3. Place baking paper into a small container so the butter doesn’t stick to the container and pour in the mix.
  4. Place in the fridge for 1+ hours to set.
  5. Flip the container to place the butter onto a plate.
  6. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks
