I think it is fun to make my own homemade butter.  If you do as well, I want to show you how to make 5 flavored keto butters.

I mean, we do eat a lot of butter on keto – right?  So why not make some absolutely delicious butters????

Now, if you are not a fan of making your butter from scratch, but still want to make flavored butter, then simply use 1/2 cup of grass-fed butter for each flavor, make sure it is room temperature, and then skip down to the flavored recipes!

Otherwise, let’s get right into how to make your homemade butter first.

Homemade Butter

How to Make Keto Butter

First things first, when you make your own butter from heavy whipping cream, you will end up with butter and buttermilk.  Pretty cool, right?

I did a few tests and how much butter vs buttermilk you get really depends on the type of heavy whipping cream as well as how long or short you blend.

To approximately make 1/2 each for 5 flavors, I like to start with 2 cups of Heavy Whipping Cream.  This yields approximately 2.5 cups of fluffy butter and 1 cup of buttermilk.  Your yield may vary slightly, but that is ok!

Instructions for Making Homemade Keto Butter

Add Heavy Whipping Cream to your high powered blender.  Blend for about 6 minutes, giving it a few seconds rest every minute or two, while scraping down the sides of the blender.

How to Make Homemade Butter

Place a fine strainer over a bowl and empty contents of the blender into the strainer.

Using your hands, gather the butter and squeeze the remaining buttermilk out of it.  The butter will clump together in your hands.

Separate the butter into 5 equal parts.  Each part should be approximately 1/2 cup.  It might be a little more or a little less.

Refrigerate while waiting to be used below.

What Do I Do With the Buttermilk?

Like I said if you make your own homemade butter, you know you get buttermilk!  It doesn’t taste that great on its own, but it isn’t bad.

You can save it and use it in recipes that call for buttermilk OR you can put 1 tablespoon sugar-free maple syrup in it, mix it up and have a delicious tasting keto buttermilk!

How to Store Keto Butter

The best way to store homemade butter is in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  Because it is homemade without preservatives, it can keep for up to 3-4 days.

You can also freeze the butter.  See below.

Can I Freeze Homemade Keto Butter?

Look at how beautifully these freeze!  I really wanted these to look a certain way.  I wanted them separated slightly.

I melted each butter and then put them each in a mold like this one.  This allowed the butter to separate a bit and the heavier pieces to move to the bottom (the molds are upside down) which will end up being the top.

If you don’t want that, you can add the very soft butter to a mold immediately upon making it and then freeze it.
