AND THE WINNER IS:
Have you ever used Coconut Oil? I didn't even know it existed until recently. Tropical Traditions has an amazing variety of products using coconut oil. They sent me a 32 Fl. oz jar of Coconut Oil to try. Why coconut oil? You can see an interview with the founder of Tropical Traditions HERE on youtube.
When I think oil - I think liquid, so I was quite surprised when I opened the jar and it was solid! "Read label before opening" LOL. Apparently it solidifies at about 76 degrees F. - my house isn't that warm right now :) All you have to do to make it a liquid is warm it in a container of water. Easy enough. I'm not a very patient person, so I scraped some oil out of the jar and placed it in a microwavable container and melted it in the microwave. If you love the smell of coconut as much as I do - the scent is amazing!
Luckily Tropical Traditions has lots of Recipes to choose from using the oil. So I went through the list and picked two that I would do for the review. Will definitely be trying some of the others too. The two I decided on were the Energy Berry Smoothie and the Quick Banana Nut Muffins, minus the nuts as hubby is slightly allergic.
They are both amazing!! I was actually hoping the coconut flavor would be stronger, but it was still very nice. The muffins are really moist and yummy! Hubby doesn't usually care for Smoothies, but even he thought this one was really good :) I used Strawberries in the smoothy, but it would be good with any berry.
