I absolutely enjoy working with unique, textured butters for my DIY creations. In this super fluffy butter mixture; I included Tamanu butter, Murumuru butter, Kokum butter, and Cocoa butters.
Using the highest quality butters from Oslove Organics, I was able to whip up the perfect mixture for the holidays. This super moisturizing cream would make the perfect gift for any occasion, especially during the dry, winter months.

How to Make Whipped Butter
First, gather all of your butters. Melt the down on low heat using a double boiler, or by placing a heat resistance container in a hot water bath. Melting your butters slowly will uphold their nutrients and integrity.
Texture, Color, Origin, and Smell plays a role in each butter's uniqueness.
Next, add your favorite liquid oils, essential oils or fragrances, and vitamin E. These ingredients are optional, but to get a creamy, whipped consistency; some kind of liquid (carrier oil) is recommended. I used extra virgin coconut oil to achieve a super fluffy whipped butter.
Place in the freezer for 20 minutes until top layer is semi solidified. Then began to blend using a hand mixer or stand mixer.
If the mixture does not freeze evenly, trying using a different container next time. I demonstrate how to scrap the sides and save the butter when this happens with the following pictures:
Now mix for 15 to 45 minutes depending on how fluffy and creamy you want your mixture to stay. I find that I get the best mixture when I whip for at least 30 minutes or until the mixture has significantly increased in volume and turned a pale yellow color.
And that's it! Whipped butter mixtures are truly the easiest creations to make. A whipped butter can be achieve using at least 70% butter and 30% oils give or take. The 70% can be one butter, five butters, or however many you may desire. Just do the research before you jump right in. Too many hard butters can make the mixture too stiff, while too many softer butters can make it a melting mess.
