Over the holidays we found some wonderful uses for shredded coconut. This is not the same as coconut flakes, which is what you typically find on store shelves. This stuff has been finely shredded…it looks like snow flakes, almost! Since this was a different way of using coconut, I wasn’t exactly sure if I’d know what to do with it. But as it turns out, I LOVE it!
First, we added it to pancakes and oatmeal. In both cases, it adds delicious flavor but doesn’t add a different texture that might not be appealing, which would happen if y
ou used flakes, instead. Second, I got to make coconut macaroons for the first time in my life, and thanks to a recipe on the Tropical Traditions website, my first batch turned out great and I was able to share them at a holiday party.
Our shredded coconut is the Tropical Traditions Organic Shredded Coconut, and just as we have been with every other product we have tried from this company, we are very impressed with the quality. I feel like I have a wonderful new “secret ingredient” in my pantry and I’m looking forward to discovering many different ways to add a bit of coconut to my cooking and bring new flavors to our table.
