Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Review

I have always loved everything coconut. But I am new to the coconut oil trend. When I first heard of all of its uses, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical. But after being lucky enough to receive a jar of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil, I can say I’m a believer. It tastes great, and the uses are endless. You can even use it as a hair treatment!

There are many ways to use coconut oil and incorporate it into one’s diet. Since it is a stable cooking oil, one can simply replace unhealthy oils in their diet with coconut oil. Since it is a solid most of the time at room temperature or when refrigerated, it can be a butter or margarine substitute for spreads or for baking. Any recipe calling for butter, margarine, or any other oil can be substituted for coconut oil. It is popularly mixed in with “smoothies.” Many people do eat it simply by the spoon full. If you refrigerate or freeze Virgin Coconut Oils the taste changes completely, and some describe it like a “candy” or “white chocolate.” Some people fill up ice cube trays with coconut oil and then store them in the freezer. Some people use it as a spread, and a lot of people put it into their coffee or tea.”
I love to start my mornings out with a healthy protein shake and the coconut oil added a perfect antioxidant packed boost with a very subtle coconut flavor. Here’s my recipe:

Vanilla Coconut Protein Shake

  • 1 Scoop of Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Peanut Butter
  • 1 (medium-sized) Banana
  • 2 Teaspoons Coconut Oil
  • Ice

Mix ingredients in blender and enjoy!

    I love all things coconutty! I used to use coconut oil on my hair and skin a lot, but to eat I tend to cook with coconut milk. It is such a great item. So many uses: cosmetic, edible and otherwise. Nice post 🙂
