I am so pleased to be able to review the Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.
My first recipe I used is this one provided by Tasty Yummies (click for original recipe)! I had to adapt it a little as I didn't have all ingredients. I prefer frozen mangos if you have them- this makes the mixture less gritty. If they aren't frozen and you don't like grittiness- just drink through a straw. The taste is great and the coconut flavor is so yummy in it. I have to say the vanilla amps the flavor for me too! I'll be trying it again with a banana and frozen mangos next time! JUST a little FYI: Did you know my first job was mixing smoothies at Jamba Juices? I LOVE smoothies!
ADAPTED Coconut Mango Banana Smoothie – Serves 2
2 cup milk
2 mangos, sliced
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoon extra virgin coconut oil
1 handful of ice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes for topping, optional
Add all of the ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth and creamy. Serve immediately. Sprinkle some coconut flakes on top, if you wish.
I'm excited to try out some other great recipes with coconut oil too! I think it would be yummy for chicken on Hawaiian Hay Stacks too!
