Giveaway & Review: Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil


 The winner is Averie from Love Veggies and Yoga!  


Tropical Traditions sent me a jar of their Virgin Coconut Oil to sample- it is also organic.  What is great about the gold label brand is that it is made by hand unlike other coconut oils. I love coconut oil and this stuff is great.  I use coconut oil to make a number of raw dishes – my favorite way to use it is in raw macaroons.  I also love to use it in stir fries instead of peanut or canola oil because it gives the stir fry a really great flavor.  Yesterday I actually heated it up and sprinkled it on my kabocha squash before I roasted it and it was delicious.

  2. Hello!

    I just followed you on twitter (3hpvegan), tweeted appropriately, and subscribed to the newsletter.

    As for the recipes, I’m intrigued by the idea of baking with coconut oil, so I’d like to try the pizza crust.

    As for the Tropical Traditions website, I didn’t realize that non-hydrogenated shortening could be made from coconut oil. It seems like a great alternative for baking.

    I guess I’ve been entered 5 times now? Thanks for the opportunity!
