Compound butter aka flavored butter is such an easy way to add flavor to grilled meats, vegetables, or keto bread. It's the perfect condiment to use when you follow a healthy keto diet.

This wasabi ginger compound butter is made with 100% powdered Japanese horseradish, no artificial alternatives. This savory fat bomb goes especially well with grilled steaks with grilled green onions. It's also a great way to boost your cauli-rice with healthy fats and flavor without the extra carbs!

Here’s a pro tip on storing if you can’t use the entire log in a timely fashion. Scoop the softened butter into a silicone ice cube tray then freeze until solid. Once frozen simply pop them out and store in a freezer safe container.

Or instead of just one, make 2-3 small butter logs and freeze. When you need a bit of butter just let it thaw at room temperature for 30 minutes or so before using.

Tip: Flavored butter makes a delicious and unique gift! Simply wrap it in parchment paper, twist the ends, attach a ribbon and a gift tag.
