How to make White Chocolate Whipped Body Butter. Make your own homemade soft and smooth whipped body butter with this easy recipe.
White Chocolate Body Butter
In the winter I love and cling to just about anything that will keep my skin smooth, soft, and moisturized since I have a tendency to dry up. Since we’ve moved to an area with higher humidity I thought for some reason that this issue might get a little better but I was wrong about that.
I’ve always loved my Homemade Coconut Oil Lotion and out Homemade Lotion Bars but this time I wanted to make a lotion that was just a little more “special” than normal. Something a little more luxurious to give me that “pampered” feeling. Thus this super simple, yet super amazing White Chocolate Whipped Body Butter recipe was born.
–This Homemade Hand Cleaner is great to exfoliate and moisturize dry hands too.
Last month I picked up some cocoa butter on Amazon to try it out and come up with some new recipes with it. Cocoa Butter is a fat extracted from the cocoa bean. Not only is it used to make chocolates (as long as you get food grade) but it’s also used in lotions, ointments, and other body products. Cocoa Butter is high in antioxidants so it will help fight free radicals (so it’s a good ingredient to add to Homemade Sunblock!), and since it’s high in fatty acids it will help deeply heal skin issues. Pair this with the ever amazing Coconut Oil and you’ve got the perfect ingredients for an amazing lotion!

What You Need:
How to Make:
In a saucepan (or in a double boiler that you rig up such as mine pictured above), heat the coconut oil and cocoa butter until melted.
Pour the melted mixture into a container and stick it in the fridge for a while until it firms up and hardens.
With a hand mixer, whip the mixture until light and fluffy. Make sure to store it in a cool area. If it gets too warm and melts, simply place the homemade cocoa butter lotion back in the fridge and re-whip once it has cooled.
Enjoy your amazing, soft chocolaty scented lotion! This is SO luscious, thick, and smooth!
