Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream Concentrate! [Giveaway Ended]

Giveaway! Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream Concentrate

Did you see the Andes mint recipe I posted using coconut butter (aka coconut cream concentrate)? Have you ever tried coconut butter? If you haven't (or just need a new jar), I wanted you guys to have a chance to try it out and Tropical Traditions offered to give a jar to one of you! So what is this coconut cream concentrate I speak of?

Coconut cream concentrate is also known as coconut butter or coconut manna. If you see those terms, it's all the same. According to Tropical Traditions' website, coconut cream concentrate:

"has NO water, and is pure coconut. Unlike the commercial varieties, it also contains ALL the fiber of the coconut. Pure, dried coconut contains more fiber per gram than even oat bran! This fiber has been stripped out of commercial coconut milks and coconut creams. . . Coconut Cream Concentrate, however, contains NO additives and NO preservatives at all: it is 100% natural coconut made from certified organic Philippine coconuts grown without pesticides or fertilizers." 

Did you know you can make coconut milk from your coconut cream concentrate? To be honest, I read this before and I've never tried it. I don't know why, but I'm going to do it now! One quart of coconut cream concentrate will make 192 servings of coconut milk! (It will be grainy this way, but perfect for smoothies. To make coconut milk from dried coconut, watch this video from Tropical Traditions.)

One lucky winner (in the USA or Canada) will receive one jar (32oz) of Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream Concentrate!

I really love Tropical Traditions and believe in their products. They are very reasonably priced and offer free shipping often. (I'm not trying to sound like a sales pitch here. I only promote companies I actually use myself.) I typically purchase: dried coconut (shredded/flakes), coconut flour, expeller-pressed coconut oil (for when I don't want the flavor), organic cotton balls, and occasionally the fair-trade coffee and a few others. I absolutely love their raw honey (though I can only buy it when it's on sale).

Tropical Traditions is also the best place to get Virgin Coconut Oil. Learn more about their Virgin Coconut Oil here. Plus, check out this great list for all the uses for coconut oil. They also have soy-free eggs and grassfed/pastured meat if you are looking for a source.


Giveaway! Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream Concentrate

If you follow my blog, you know I like to make treats with coconut butter. It is so good you can eat it off the spoon. Seriously, many people do. While I like the taste plain, I'm not a fan of the dry peanut-butter-like feeling in my mouth. Nothing personal, coconut butter. I'm just weird. So, I experiment with coconut cream concentrate and make delicious coconut-filled treats. I have so many more ideas in my head wanting to break free, but here are the ones I've posted so far:

Recipes using Coconut Cream Concentrate

Watch this video for how to prepare your coconut cream concentrate (when you get a new jar).

Update: Tropical Traditions has Free Shipping this weekend, so for you regulars or someone that wants to try them out, this is the best time!

    Sorry about your dad, Alona. That is tough, but there are definitely some treats he can (and should) enjoy! I can't eat gluten or dairy (most dairy) either, so everything I make, including treats, is free from both. My tarts and banana bites are also nut and egg- free. If you try them out, I hope your father enjoys them. Good luck in the giveaway!

    Good luck, Cynthia! If you missed them, I linked to a few recipes that I make using coconut cream concentrate. The lemon tarts would be a nice low-carb treat. Leave out the date crust and add a little more coconut oil to the filling and you have firmer lemon-tart candies. :)
