Goat Milk Butter Recipe

This goat milk butter recipe is super easy to make regardless if you use a blender or butter churn.


What Does Goat Milk Butter Taste Like?

Goat milk butter tastes just like regular store bought butter.

It does not have an “off” taste as long as you start with good quality goat milk and heavy cream.

I have never noticed it developing an “off” taste even when I made it and then froze it for several months.

The color is slighlty different because I do not add food coloring to my butter.

The only additives I use are a pinch of salt and on occassion a few dried herbs.

Making Butter From Goats Milk

It is a great way to use the cream off the top of the goat milk as well as the extra goat milk you have on hand before it goes bad.

It is ok to use frozen goat milk or frozen cream as long as you thaw it first.

Homemade butter tastes great plus you know exactly what is in it!

Use homemade butter to sear meat or in anyway you would normally use store-bought butter.

  • Author: Sheri Ann Richerson
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1/2 cup 1x
  • Category: Condiments
  • Method: No Cook


  • 2 cups heavy cream – fresh or thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Goat milk – optional
  • Spices, dill weed, garlic, nasturtium blooms, lavender buds or rose petals – optional


  1. Put the heavy cream into a blender. You can use a butter churn if you have one.
  2. Turn the blender on medium high and blend the heavy cream for about 5 minutes. If the blender seems to be bogging down, add a small amount of goat milk to make the contents less dense.
  3. Once the heavy cream has turned into butter, carefully pour the buttermilk into a container and put it back in the refrigerator. You can use it in recipes or simply drink it.
  4. Scoop the butter out and put it in bowl with cold water.
  5. Wash the butter by using a spoon to press it in the water to expose all areas of the butter. This washes the excess buttermilk out so the butter does not spoil.
  6. Repeat the washing process several times until the water runs clear.
  7. Once you are sure the butter is clean, squeeze as much excess water out as possible using a spoon.
  8. Pour the excess water off the butter.
  9. Sprinkle the salt on top of the fresh butter and work it in with a spoon. Additional water will come off the butter. Simply pour this water off.
  10. Add in any herbs, fresh flowers or other spices you might want and mix well to combine them. This is an optional step.
  11. Refrigerate the butter either in a butter bell or a covered dish.
  12. Keep an eye on it the first day because additional water will accumulate in the dish. Just pour this off.


Note: This butter lasts a week in the refrigerator and about two months in the freezer.
