It’s Christmas Eve! I hope you each have a wonderful Christmas full of God’s blessings! Enjoy your time together with family and friends. God is so good to us!
Today is our final giveaway, Day 25, from Tropical Traditions. This is another favorite source of mine for high quality organic coconut oil. Tropical Traditions is the Gold Label coconut oil as they create their coconut oil (and all products) with the highest quality standards.
Tropical Traditions Gold Label coconut oil is virgin coconut oil, unrefined, and USDA certified organic. This coconut oil is the good stuff, in the most raw natural state possible. You can read here more details on where they get their coconuts from and how they turn them into coconut oil. Very interesting and detailed. It answers a lot of questions you might have about where does coconut oil come from? I also liked reading their detailed page about where to buy coconut oil. They explain what to look for on the label and why.
Tropical Traditions sent me a quart size jar of their Gold Label coconut oil to sample and review. You all know how much I love my coconut oil. We talk about it so often here at Healing Cuisine. I am used to using Tropical Traditions in my kitchen. I love the taste and texture of it. It’s easy to spoon out of the jar even in solid form. The taste is very mild coconut flavor. It doesn’t overpower dishes. That’s how you know if a coconut oils is truly unheated and unrefined. The taste is the most noticeable factor to tell if you are eating truly unrefined and unheated coconut oil or not. If it has a strong coconutty flavor or even a rancid taste that you can’t get past, that’s how you know your coconut oil has been damaged/heated or refined.

I used my sampling of their Gold Label coconut oil to make a couple batches of my “Candy Cane” Macaroons. They turned out wonderfully and the coconut oil did the perfect job as the binding agent in these cookies. We also enjoy frying our eggs in the coconut oil. Coconut oil can handle high temperatures without burning, so it is the perfect oil to do all of your cooking and frying with. My husband is a big fan of his eggs fried in coconut oil. He loves the slightly nutty taste the coconut oil gives the eggs. Add a little sea salt and I’m set. We also add a few tablespoons of coconut oil to our hot coffee. We blend it in the blender until mixed and frothy. No need to spend money on lattes anymore! Try it, you’ll love the taste and the creaminess the coconut oil adds to your coffee! I’m still working my way through the rest of the quart of coconut oil.
Tropical Traditions coconut oil is also great outside of the kitchen. I use it as my body lotion, body lotion for my infant, lip moisturizer, hair conditioner, and eye makeup remover. I also use it as my base to make homemade toothpaste.
