Coco co co co coconut- YEAH

Posted Jun 10 2011 12:00am

hey yall! Thanks for reading my interview yesterday! it really means a lot!

anywho… not too long ago I received a BIG ASH jar of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil!

I was a bit thrown on what to make with it- I thought about going savory but this gal don’t do savory! I’m THE QUEEN of SWEET STUFF!

SO…..

When I saw Averie’s  recipe for No Bake Coconut & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites   I KNEW what to do with it!

Firstly… here is the beautiful Jar!

ah the FLAVOR was just amazing!! once I opened the jar, I could smell the BEAUTIFUL aroma of sweet coconut!

I used it to make 1/2 batch of the mini balls and added some almond extract too for an extra kick of flavor!

I incorporated them into my lunch today!

chopped carrot, tomato, broccoli, pickle with grilled onions and peppers in balsamic, beans, hummus and a dollop of salsa!

and for something sweet I had two of the Cookie dough balls….

Plus a spoonful of Cinnamon Swirl pb from pb&co that I got in my goodie swap from Ellen!   I only had the package for less than 30 minutes and I had already dug into the peanut butter- what can I say? PB is the JAM- esp when mixed with cinnamon and raisins!

This lunch came after a great workout this morning!

4.54 mile run + 3 circuits of Jillian’s No More Trouble Zones DVD

I worked on my abs and triceps!

Anywho-I could REALLy taste the coconutty flavor in the cookie dough balls! that coconut oil is awesome and I cannot wait to experiment more with it! Sweet tater fries baked in coconut oil anyone? YUM!

Questions of the Day:

What is your favorite form of coconut? butter, oil, flakes, etc…

What would you make with coconut oil?
