SWEET COCONUT SPREAD!

Need a sneaky way to add for coconut oil into your diet?

Want something sugar-free, with a low GI, that will satisfy your cravings?

Look no further....This delicious, super easy spread will satisfy your taste buds and your brain!

 

SWEET COCONUT SPREAD: Simply mix equal parts coconut oil and coconut flower nectar in your processor on high speed until combined. Viola!!!

Coconut flower nectar is the nutrient rich sap from the coconut flower.  It can be used as a healthy sweetener, as an alternative to sugar, stevia, xylitol and agave.  It has a beautiful sweet taste, rich and caramel, almost toffee like.  It is a whole food unrefined sweetener that is sustainably harvested (from the right source).  Nectar has a low glycaemic index of 35 (most commercial honeys are GI 55 and cane sugar GI 68) and is mineral rich, containing 17 amino acids, potassium, magnesium, zinc, iron and more.  It is a great source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C and has zero additives and preservatives.

Coconut syrup is reduced nectar and would work a treat, with an even deeper flavour, or you could sub honey or maple syrup too. 

A great lower GI spread full of the special medium chain fatty acids that coconut oil such a superfood.  Perfect for all your spreading needs and to add to recipes that need sweetening, smoothies, cakes, or straight off the spoon too!

 

So you get the goodness of coconut oil, with all its amazing MCTs and benefits (brain fuel, boost metabolism, hormone balancing, digestion calming, skin clearing, anti-aging, memory boosting, detoxifying, energy boosting etc....) with the sweetness and superior nutrition of nectar, without the high GI of other sweeteners, without the dangerous TRANS fats that some other commonly used spreads (your fav brand may be one of these!)

Enjoy!

 

Note. This yummy spread has a long shelf life and does not require refrigeration, but sometimes the nectar and oil separate, so just give it a little stir and all will be well!
