Have you ever heard of Coconut Secret?
It is a line of products derived from coconuts!!!
The line of products includes coconut flour, coconut crystals, coconut nectar, coconut vinegar, and coconut aminos.
All of their products 100% organic, gluten free, dairy free, and GMO free.
I was lucky enough to be sent a package containing their vinegar, crystals, and nectar!
I was so excited to try these out in my favorite recipes!!
First, I decided to use the coconut vinegar because we use apple cider vinegar a lot in my house!
We love to make kale salads and one of the ingredients we use is apple cider vinegar…..so this time around we substituted the coconut vinegar…
I didn’t think our kale salad could taste any yummier…but it actually did!!!
My kids LOVED it-but it didn’t take much convincing…kale salad is their favorite…..
It tasted very similar to apple cider vinegar but better!!!
Next, I wanted to use the coconut nectar…..
I decided to try it in my brownie recipe in place of the agave.
The ingredients are:
2 cups of raw cashews……
ground finely in the food processor. Place into a mixing bowl.
2 cups of raw almonds
ground finely in the food processor. Mix the ground almond flour and ground cashews together.
add in 1/4 cup of cacao powder or cocoa powder….
1/2 cup of coconut nectar or agave nectar…
a dash of sea salt
and I added some maca powder as well but this is optional and is not necessary in the recipe.
Mix together to form a dough….
then start to form it into squares! I dipped mine into some cacao nibs…
You could eat them just like this….
but I like to warm them in my dehydrator…
Delicious!!! I loved how they turned out with the coconut nectar!!!
So chewy and gooey!!
I will be using the coconut nectar again!
I also tried the coconut crystals in my homemade lemonade recipe-
fresh squeezed lemon, water, ice and coconut crystals!!!
Delicious!!! No picture though!!! LOL
I am really excited about these products and very impressed with the nutritional values as well….for example..2 tablespoons of the vinegar has 5 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein!! That is amazing!
I found these products at my local health food store which was good because we went through them FAST!!!
Have you ever tried any of these products??
