I am a huge fan of Garden of Life. I was recently able to try out their coconut oil, and I was surprised to find that there are tons of ways to use coconut oil.
We make homemade popcorn almost every night at our house. We usually use just a little bit of olive oil and sea salt. I was worried that by making the switch to coconut oil that my toddlers would notice the difference and not eat it. They, however, ate it up and didn’t notice a thing.
(Haha I love how my camera captured my toddler dropping the measuring spoon and some kernels falling to the ground before they hit the actual floor)
We placed 1/2 cup organic Trader Joe’s popcorn kernels covered in sea salt and Garden of Life Coconut Oil in a paper bag. We put it in the microwave for about two minutes. What we were left with was a delicious late-night snack!
Earlier in the day, we experimented with Coconut Fudge.
I used 1/4 cup organic maple syrup, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1/4 tsp vanilla and a dash of sea salt. We then mixed it and put it into an ice-cube tray and placed it in the fridge. After about two hours, this was the result.
My toddlers didn’t care for it. However, I thought it was good. I thought it tasted like a truffle with a hint of sea salt. I would make them again.
Do you use Coconut Oil? What are some of your favorite recipes? Pinterest is full of ideas, and I plan on trying as many as I can. The next one I would love to try is mixing 1 TBSP Garden of Life Coconut Oil and 1 TBSP Organic Raw Honey and using it as a hair mask. I will share that one on Instagram in a couple of days. I have tried other Coconut Oil’s in the past, and this is truly my favorite. Did you know that Garden of Life’s Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil is among the healthiest, most versatile dietary oils in the world, and it is raw? It has an amazing taste, and the smell is out of this world.
