    Me. It makes awesome ice magic ;-)

    Seriously though, I've only just bought my first ever jar so I'm not a big user yet.

    I use it stacks. An alternative to butter on DS's toast or on scones, in cooking all the time, for curries or stews or bakes pork in the slow cooker etc. Also in things like bliss balls (ground nuts, prunes, puffed amaranth, rice syrup and coconut oil, Fresh LSA rolled into balls then rolled on coconut flakes). Put it in smoothies and icecream. Also great on your skin and hair. When ds was still eating mashed up foods I would put a little bit of it in him mashed veg or meat etc. It's also great to cook with in your muffins or cakes or almond or coconut bread

    I read about it on here so looked for it when shopping, but was thrown a bit when I saw it! How do you use it? Do you soften it first somehow?

    Coconut oil...

    Me! I cook with it, moisturise, wash my hair (shampoo & conditioner) and take them in gel capsules. My skin is really nice It is brilliant because it doesnt spoil like other oils and adds a yummo cononut flavour to stir fry etc

    Coconut oil...

    Coconut flour is brilliant - high fibre - so you can substitute half the recipe's flour with it. But substitute all and its too much for most things.

    Just ordered my first coconut sugar, cant wait!

    Olive they sound yummy!

    Kelly I have coconut palm sugar and Rapadura sugar, they are both delicious! So much more depth of flavor and both alkaline! Over Xmas I made gingerbread with the Rapadura sugar and used the palm sugar to make the royal icing with, turned out perfect. I also use either or in my muffins etc or raw local honey.

    Coconut oil...

    Great to hear its yummy cherished! I hear things like stevia and other natural sweeteners arent as good at the moment because they are starting to be processed etc... The coconut sugar I ordered is organic so will be good, and low GI too.

    I use coconut oil daily. As a face cleanser and moisturiser. For small cuts and nicks. I don't use it in cooking as much as I should.

    i've cooked using coconut flour. You need to use a lot of eggs with it. I also have coconut sugar.
