long been over due. A while ago, I was able to review some coconut oil. Coconut oil was something I had not, had the privilege of using in anything I cooked. I was excited to put my infamous a little dash of this, my dash of that, to the test with Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil.

I immediately loved how it looked.
Call me weird but it looked like a creamy coconut butter that was waiting to slathered all over some hot biscuits or croissants. It smelled delicious and I was hungry. Yes I tasted it right out the jar and it wasnt bad at all. However, I refrained from attacking it and let my mind think on what I was going to create with it. Before I started cooking I took the time to how and why Tropical Traditions carry the Gold Label Standard. Please read it about it for yourself right here
. So after looking at some chicken and shrimp I decided on a shrimp stir fry. I like coconut shrimp so why not create a stir fry. My creation turned out wonderful. The coconut flavor was mild and not overbearing to the shrimp, garlic seasoning and veggies. What I really liked is I only used 3 tablespoons of coconut oil. It coated the pan nicely. The shrimp mixture was atop hot rice and spinach. It was a big hit in the house. Now I’m hooked. It’s also a plus knowing the “coconuts are used fresh (within 24-48 hours of harvest) from small family farms on Mt. Banahaw and other rural places in Quezon Province, the coconut capital of the Philippines.”
I knew that I would want to make a lot more with the coconut oil. How happy was I see Tropical Traditions has tons of recipes. Be sure to pay a visit to Coconut Recipes
. There were so many to choose from. I think I clicked them all, and I have added “try every recipe I saw” to my bucket list of things to do. Finally after much back and forth I tried Coconut Fruit Smoothie
and it was so good. Very filling for breakfast, snack, basically in my opinion I would have one of those smoothies anytime of the day. Just about all the recipes are easily adjusted to your taste. This definitely a keeper in my house. Tropical Traditions carry many more items other than coconut oil that I definitely want to try. So be sure to check them out. You wont be disappointed.
