Hey y’all! Hey! If you’ve read any of my latest post you know I love my homemade butters. I think they are absolutely EVERYTHING! Making home made butters can also be time consuming. What if I told you there’s an easier way?
About that easier way there is one. No you don’t need a deep boiler, a pot, or a stove. I know gasp. But foreal you won’t need it. What you will need is of course your butters oils essentials if ya nasty aye👋🏾.
So in order to skip over the stove just pop it in the microwave. Yes I said it the 👏🏾micro 👏🏾 wave👏🏾!
I came across an easier technique by happen stance. I didn’t have time to do my butter over the stove. Isn’t I threw my shea butter along with some oils in a container and kept it pushing.
Now of course it takes a little more finess then just popping it in the microwave. I have this thing about texture and if your anything like me your going to have to keep your eyes on it.
Here’s the low down I putthe butter in for a few seconds maybe 15. I take it out the shea butter and I stir or wip it. I then place it back in for another 15 seconds I repeat this step until I get the consistency I want.
I did not heat the butter up until it was in liquid form. The reason behind not melting completely is because it’s suppose to be simple and easy. This is all about saving time.
If you melt the butter down into a liquid you’ll have to do the process of cooling. After cooling you’ll then be putting it in the fridge. Goodness forbid if you forget about it and it turns into a brick you have to work through. Gurl!
You may have to play around with how many seconds you use but all in all it’s pretty quick. It’s a hack for when your low on time. For me it’s just like making instant oatmeal in a short bowl you have to baby sit it while it’s in the microwave.
I had never done this before but, my mom talked about it often. She likes to heat up her shea butter with olive oil. It’s kind of ingenious. I don’t think that it can replace the long hand of making a good wip butter but it’s not so bad for a quick fix.
I was able to get a really good wip out of it. Like I said it still takes some finesse. I’m from the tribe of no clumps in my shea butter so you gotta work it out. But it sure beats standing over the stove when there is simply no time.
I hope that this hack is a time saver for you on those extremely busy weeks. You want the benefits of a good homemade butter but don’t have the time maybe you can give this a try.
I mean this can literally be done on a babies cat nap( which is exactly what ya girl did.)Quick fast and easy. Tell me in the comments below how you find ways to save time. I would love to hear from you 🥰!! Remember, be happy, be curly, be you, and you will never fail!
