With my love for coffee and all things coffee, coffee butter has been in my list for products to try. I finally purchased some to experiment with, and I was beyond overjoyed and pleased with the final product. The whipped body butter is rich and feels light on the skin. It also a good moisturizer for the skin. I love this whipped coffee butter, it is luxurious, light and fluffy and smell amazing. I added vanilla and almond fragrance to the already amazing coffee smell of the coffee butter and this combination is great.
- 8 oz coffee butter
- .75 ounces of sweet almond oil (you can use a mix of other great oils like jojoba oil or grapeseed oil)
- 2 tsp of arrowroot powder
- fragrance is optional (I used vanilla and almond for this recipe)

How to make whipped coffee butter
Place coffee butter in a glass bowl and whip for a minute to cream the butter.
Add the sweet almond oil (or combination of sweet almond oil and jojoba oil) and the fragrance oils if using. Then whip the butter and oils for another minute to combine.
As I said earlier, the fragrance is optional as the coffee butter already has the perfect coffee aroma. But you can make this recipe appealing to others that may find the coffee aroma too strong by toning down the coffee aroma with other fragrances. I like simple vanilla, this would have been enough but I added some almond and this took this recipe to the next level.
Add the arrowroot powder and continue to whip for 5 to 7 minutes until the butter is light and fluffy and has the whipped consistency. Keep in mind that with the whipping of the butter it will double volume, use a large enough bowl for this recipe. (See mine, I had to stop whipping because I almost got it out of the bowl.)
Transfer the whipped coffee butter to your favorite container and use as needed. Using a piping bag, and piping the body butter in the container makes it look like real icing! The body butter smells delicious, hopefully no one gets confused and tries to eat it.
I absolutely like the way this whipped coffee butter turned out. I am certain I will make it again very soon!
