I have been singing the praises of coconut milk and coconut water on my blog for many months, but just recently I had the privilege of trying Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. Talk about a multi-purpose product! While you can cook with it, bake with it, add it to smoothies or even take a spoonful straight, you can also use it as a versatile skincare product. It works well as a moisturizer and massage oil. I was pleasantly surprised when I went to a new massage therapist who used Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil in her practice. I had forewarned her about my chemical sensitivities and aversion to strong scents and coconut oil was her solution. As a moisturizer it absorbs nicely into the skin and it does not leave a greasy residue. It smells like fresh coconut and is the PERFECT beauty product for people who are chemically sensitive like me. I like to use it as a post leg-shaving moisturizer.
I have also added it to my smoothies and stir fries but still need to try baking with it. The following video includes a recipe for gluten-free creamy pumpkin cheesecake bars (perfect for fall!) made with coconut flour and coconut oil! Given my current pumpkin/fall obsession, I can't wait to try making this!
