A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts

We recently started selling So Delicious Coconut Milk in the store and the response has been crazy. All over twitter fans of this product are proclaiming their love!

We decided to ask everyone how they best like to use it and share their ideas here:

@edrek uses it in his Never Worry Chicken Curry recipe

@keppsterr likes it to use it in his blueberry waffle batter

@GEToronto uses it on granola at breakfast

@laurendorphin uses it in smoothies

-Chef @DougMcNish uses it a lot in his kitchen at Raw Aura, it’s his go-to milk substitute

@NoSubstitutions recommends it for hot chocolate

@nerdeats puts it in his pancakes

@pdxpaintballer makes coconut ice cream with it

@RoomofRadcliffe puts it in her chai

Then the actual makers of the product got in on the conversation and recommended these incredible recipes for sweet and savoury dishes. Previously only available in the USA, we’re very happy to carry this product in Canada.

Not only is it delicious and a great substitute for milk, it’s good for you too. Coconuts contain saturated fat but there are good and bad saturated fats and this is one of the good ones. Here’s some science to explain it all:

“Although coconut contains saturated fat, a closer examination shows that not all saturated fats pose a health problem. Saturated fat chains exist in a variety of lengths which impact the body differently.

Research has demonstrated that Long Chain Triglycerides (LCT) represent the most sinister saturated fat. LCTs exist primarily in foods derived from animals and have been linked to heart disease and a number of other chronic conditions. The body stores LCTs as fat.

Coconut represents a vegetarian-sourced saturated fat consisting of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA). Scientists have long recognized MCFAs such as lauric and capric acid for their anti-viral and anti-microbial properties. The body utilizes MCFAs as energy instead of storing them as fat.”

Hmmm. Interesting. Now go check out this funny cartoon.
