  • If you aren’t already aware, there are dozens of recipes for homemade vegan butter floating around the web.
  • Alternatively, you could opt to use chilled unrefined coconut oil.
    Also, bear in mind that the riper (more flecked with brown spots) your bananas are, the stronger the banana flavor will be!
