Review: Tropical Traditions

*I was sent a free quart of coconut oil in order for me to review it. This by no means swayed my thoughts about the product or my review.

Awhile back Tropical Traditions sent me a quart of extra virgin coconut oil to review. It sure didn’t last long! I love to use coconut oil and go through at least a half a quart a month and the oil from TT was a fine addition to my baking needs. The flavor was great (I’ve had some not so great tasting ones) and it wasn’t overly coconut smelling, but because it was extra virgin it still held all of the nutritional and medicinal benefits.

Another great thing about Tropical Traditions is that they have pretty good prices and run sales. I signed up for their newsletter and get deals and sales in my inbox quite often. Sometimes even a buy one get one free! They also have a lot of good information on their site where you can learn all you need to know about coconut oil.

Personally I’ve really been enjoying using this oil to make Nourishing Fudge and my Grains Free Brownies! What are you’re favorite ways to use coconut oil?

  1. love TT!!! their prices are cheaper (even with shipping) than I can get locally! actually, that’s rather sad when you think of it… :)

  2. I won some of their stuff from a giveaway a month or so ago, but I don’t know what to do with it! Thanks for including a few recipes. I have coconut flour, coconut oil, and coconut cream and it has just been sitting there because I have no idea how to use it… it smells good though :)

  3. I cook with it! Coconut oil plus butter for all my low to medium heat applications, coconut oil only for high heat. I bake with it! I replace an equal amount of coconut oil for any oil or fat in a recipe. I eat it! Yup, I spread it on bread like butter. Half butter and half coconut oil is delicious. A little blended into a smoothie really improves the mouthfeel of the drink and adds important nutrients. I rub it on! Coconut oil is my hand lotion, my chapstick, my heel softener and my cut soother. It has antimicrobial properties that make it great on cuts. I love me some coconut oil!!

  4. I like Tropical Traditions for their coconut oil AND for their coconut oil hand cream. I have super-dry skin (due to an autoimmune disorder), and my hands were so bad that it hurt to bend my fingers (and the skin on my knuckles was cracking and bleeding). The Tropical Traditions hand cream is the ONLY thing I’ve found that helps – using it on an ongoing basis as fixed the skin on my hands! Expensive, but SO worth it.

  5. i agree with peggy and use it in many of the ways that she does!! my daughter is allergic to dairy so i use as the oil/fat in all baking … =)
    our favorite new “use” for it is in my daughter’s hair, as a fabulous conditioner/curl “smoother”!
    i posted on my love for coconut oil here …
