As you all know by now, I LOVE Tropical Traditions. This company offers a staggering variety of natural and organic products that help make going green much easier for my family. From great food items to household cleaners and even personal care products, they literally have something sure to please everyone. I use their Oxygen Bleach all the time to tackle tough baby and pet stains, and I also love their dishwashing liquid. Their Canadian Raw Honey? The best honey I've ever tasted, hands down.
But one of the things that Tropical Traditions is most famous for is their coconut products. I am a huge fan of their Gold Label Coconut Oil, and I use it while cooking quite often. Tropical Traditions also offers delicious dried coconut in a few different varieties. Tropical Traditions 100% natural Shredded Coconut, Coconut Flakes, and Coconut Chips are made from organic dried coconuts in the Philippines that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, Tropical Traditions dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white. They are a great addition to recipes and baking, or just for snacks! And because they're completely organic and untreated, I can feel good about feeding these products to my kids.
So naturally, I was thrilled to get the opportunity to review their Organic Shredded Coconut! I am a big time foodie, and I love to cook. While I prefer more savory dishes, my husband, the baker, loves his desserts. Guess what? Coconut is perfect for both! We received a HUGE 1 Gallon, resealable pail of Tropical Traditions Organic Shredded Coconut, and we immediately went to work trying this out in various dishes. Here are some of our favorite recipes using our Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut:
Baked Coconut Chicken
Creamy Dreamy Coconut Cake
As you can see, coconut is one versatile ingredient! It can be used in desserts, in main dishes, and even in cocktails and side dishes, too! I love Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut for cooking. One big plus is that it doesn't have any added sweeteners. This allows the natural flavor of the coconut to shine through without overpowering a dish. It's also very easy to work with and toasts up beautifully. I look forward to making many more dishes using Tropical Traditions Shredded Coconut. I already have a rice dish and a curry on the rotation later this week!
