Want flavour heaven at your fingertips? Here are the easiest ways to supercharge your go-to snacks by cooking them with coconut oil. It’s the foodie equivalent of friends with benefits. Why not buy some of our coconut oil
and give these food partners a go!
COCONUT OIL + ANY VEGETABLES
Skin snacks: be good to your body and eat veggies that have Vitamin A. Both carrots and sweet potatoes are a good source of this vitamin, so why not bake some carrot crisps or sweet potato fries using coconut oil. Super tasty.
COCONUT OIL + WHITE RICE
A recent study by scientists in Sri Lanka
claimed if you chill rice for 12 hours (after boiling) the calorie content was reduced by up to 50%. They claimed this method changed the starch into ‘resistance starch’ that can’t be digested so easily. Could curry just have got a little health kick? Why not add a spoonful of coconut to your rice for some extra nutty flavour.
COCONUT OIL + VANILLA EXTRACT
Fake cake: Scoop out some vanilla pods or add a drop or two of organic vanilla extract to some melted coconut oil and you’ve got an instant low sugar dessert topping. For a healthier version, drizzle your vanilla coconut oil over fresh fruit.
COCONUT OIL + POPCORN
Healthier movie snacks: Every healthista’s secret fave, ditch packets of popcorn and make your own. Popping kernels into a pan of coconut oil means you can skip adding salt or sugar. Hurrah. It’s a lower salt ‘n’ sugar movie treat with enhanced natural nuttiness. Be warned: this snack is seriously addictive.
