Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream Concentrate: Review & Giveaway

Yum! Have you ever thought about what coconut cream concentrate would taste like? I hadn't thought about it at all until I saw it on the Tropical Traditions website.
If you recall from my coconut flour review, Tropical Traditions is a company dedicated to bringing quality, green, natural products to their customers. They sell everything from laundry soap to cooking oil!

This month our family has had the great opportunity to test Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream Concentrate and it has been amazing. The Tropical Traditions website offers a great variety of recipes for use with the cream. It can be used as a substitute for butter in some recipes. It can be used as a cream in your coffee. It can be used as a spread on your sandwich. This is a fantastically versatile product!

Our first trial with Coconut Cream Concentrate was peanut butter (soynut butter for Crackers) and coconut sandwiches. These were a hit for the whole family. In fact, we've eaten them several times! Next we used it as a creamer in coffee. It worked nicely but I wasn't a big fan of the flavor in my coffee. The truth is, I am pretty particular about flavors in coffee and I don't think I've ever tried coconut before. We also tried Coconut Oatmeal – Oatmeal with coconut cream concentrate and craisins mixed in. It was amazing – like eating candy. (I candied it a bit more the next time to try it out and added a little chocolate syrup and a few marshmellows – WOW). Okay, the oatmeal with all sorts of crazy sweetness may not be so healthy, but it was SO good!

My next coconut cream adventure? I want to make their brownie recipe, it looks AMAZING!


You can buy Coconut Cream Concentrate from Tropical Traditions on their website. It comes in 2 sizes, the 16oz is $11.99 and the 32oz costs $19.50. This will last you a long time – we've used ours several times and it barely looks used!

WIN IT:
One of my lucky readers will win a 32oz jar of Coconut Cream Concentrate! This contest is open to residents of the US. It will close on Friday, May 27 at noon EST.
