Creamed coconut aka coconut butter 500ml
Creamed coconut aka coconut butter is a widely used ingredient for many Asian dishes. If you are doing Paleo, Weston A Price, low carb or alternative diets, creamed coconut is one key ingredient you will want to use every day.
Its great for older people who have impaired digestive functions. They may not want to eat large quantities of food. But will still need enough to keep their energy levels up and maintain warmth.
I mix my creamed coconut with around 20% more coconut oil. Doing this improves the workability of the the product – more spreadable for example.

Comment: Add 2-3 good dsps of creamed coconut to a cup of hot water to rehydrate back to coconut cream. Make healthy seductive dishes from this culinary wonder from Asia – wicked white chocolate – luscious date truffles – sizzling curries – fabulous fish dishes. A real treat for low carbers, GAPS’ diet, gluten intolerant people. You’ll be challenged to put the top back on the jar once opened.
Important mixing instructions for creamed coconut
The creamed coconut will have separated out into 2 layers when you receive it. A top layer of coconut oil and a bottom layer of coconut solids. These need to recombined before use. The jar should be tempered with warm to hottish water to start with to prevent cracking of the jar through thermal shock.
Then simply place the jar in a pot of hot water to soften slightly. Then open the jar and either cut and blend well with sharp knife or scrape the contents into a food processor. Turn on until the contents are well blended. Then use in your favourite recipes. (see sign up form for recipes)
