Think you’ll miss butter? So did I…. And I did, BUT, so far I’m surviving 😉
Theres plenty of options available that are easy to get and really cheap…
Vitalite sunflower spread
Earth Balance vegan butter
Biona extra virgin olive oil spread
Biona organic cocomega spread
Biona Vegetable margarine
Koko pressed coconut oil spread
Suma dairy free sunflower spread
Suma soya spread
Above is really just a handful of dairy free butters… there are so many available!
I try to choose the healthiest products so would give the main margarines a miss given that you’d pretty much be eating plastic (margarine is one ingredient away from actually being plastic). But, plenty are organic and better for you!
A little tip of mine if you like salted butter!
Buy a fairly decent one and then mix a bit of Himalayan salt into it! You get the salty butter taste without the baby cow waste 😉 see what I did there. Just add as much salt as you would like… with this a little goes a long way!
The next level butter up from this? Make your own! That’s right. I’m going to make my own! I’ve looked around at a few recipes I’ve found online… And I’ll share one of the ones I think is the easiest with you… With maybe a few changes to it…
I think making your own, if you can be bothered and have the time is of course the best way. As I say, up until now I’ve not done this! But I will give it a whirl! (pun intended).
Firstly, you know exactly what’s in it! Have you looked at some ingredients labels? I reckon I can understand Donald trumps presidency campaign better than I can understand some ingredient labels! (Ok maybe not)
Secondly, you’re in control of how healthy you are.
Thirdly, you get to feel a bit fancy. ‘Yeeeaaah I’m just here…. Making ma owwwn butter….’
So, I’ll have a play around with a few recipes and share the finished result.
You don’t HAVE to use butter…. here are some alternatives to using spread…
