Cooking With Coconut Oil

You’re seeing it everywhere and hearing about all of its amazing uses, so how about giving it a try?

Here are a few tips for cooking with Coconut Oil!

1) Make a smoothie: Add richness and a hint of the tropics to your next smoothie.

2) Spread it on toast: Spread some coconut oil on warm toast instead of butter for a healthier breakfast.

3) Drizzle it on popcorn: Try using liquified coconut oil for a unique twist to traditional buttered popcorn.

4) Add it to granola: Substitute coconut oil for vegetable or canola oil for your favorite granola recipe.

5) Whip up a salad dressing!

6) Bake healthier french fries: Whether you prefer white russets or sweet potatoes, you can make crispy, baked french fries in the oven with minimal fuss using coconut oil.

And don’t forget that you can use coconut oil for much more than just cooking!
