Since my family has started to eat healthier and cleaner I’ve been very interested in trying out Tropical Traditions products. Items like their organic Buckwheat buttermilk pancakes and organic pumpkin seeds and popcorn all sound very yummy.
However one product I wanted to try the most is their organic Coconut Oil. I’ve heard so many health benefits by using coconut oil plus coconuts are one of my favorite foods(and smells).
I had never cooked with Coconut Oil before so I decided to check out their “How to Use Coconut Oil: There are hundreds of uses!“. It has many amazing ideas of ways to cook with the oil. At the bottom of the page there is a link to more recipes and I decided to make two delicious treats found on that page- “Healthier Peanut Butter Balls” and “Almond Butter Freezer Fudge”(submitted by Megan, Glendale, CA). Both were easy and fun to make. I say fun because it was fun to lick out the bowls after I was done. I really loved the dark chocolate with coconut oil taste the best. I plan on trying many of the cooking ideas they provided, next will be “Chocolate Coconut Banana Protein Shake”. Sounds amazing too.
While working with the Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil I read a lot on their site. I learned that the coconut oil is made in the Philippines using traditional methods that has been passed down from generation to generation. And that through recent studies it has shown that traditionally made coconut oil is higher in antioxidants then others. I love reading this. First off knowing that families are passing down a great tradition through out the years. But the plus for me is the antioxidants, when looking for healthy foods that’s one thing I ask, does it contain antioxidants? What are the calories? The fat content? Health benefits? ect…
I’m very impressed with Tropical Traditions, coconut oil and I can’t wait to try out other food items and health products from them.
