I was given the Opportunity to Review Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil. I am not sure if you are aware of how FABULOUS Virgin Coconut Oil is, but I am going to fill you in.
I personally love Coconut! I buy them whole at my grocery store and eat about one a week. They are a healthy snack. I was pretty psyched when I found out that you could but Coconut Oil at a reasonable price to cook with at home.
My husband LOVES Brownies! So much in fact that I make them at least once a week. Since David is VERY honest and has a sweet tooth like no other, I thought I would make this weeks Brownies using Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil. I wanted an honest opinion on how it tasted.
I made the brownies that David enjoys, Betty Crocker and substituted the vegetable oil for Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil. I cooked them for 55 minutes at 325 degrees.When they came out of the oven they looked FABULOUS! I cut into them and they were a but gooey. I put them back in the over for an additional 5 minutes and they were perfect!
The true test was my husband. I waited for them to cool and cut one for David. HE LOVED it! I did too. There is a VERY faint coconut taste. As I said earlier, I LOVE COCONUTS so I was able to pick it out right away, my husband was not as quick to pick it out!
Since we loved it in Brownies I wanted to try it in other recipes. So I used the Virgin Coconut Oil in a Shrimp and Orzo pasta recipe that I am know for. Again, it was FABULOUS! It was light and didn't weight down this delicate salad. It added Fabulous Flavor and Texture.
