The Different Ways You Can Use Coconut Plus Giveaway


When it comes to coconut, most people just think of that hard brown fuzzy fruit (or seed or nut) which is hard to get into, and when you do, you lose most of the liquid inside due to having to break it open. But coconut is much more than that.

Nowadays, we can use it for anything and everything. From health and beauty to food and drink. Every part of the coconut can be used for something or other. I've talked about the CM La Vie beauty balm from Coconut Merchant before, about how this cruelty-free, cold pressed pot of loveliness has extremely hydrating properties and can be used for the skin, hair, deodorant, and even as a make-up remover.


But now I'm back with a whole new range of products from Coconut Merchant, and a giveaway to boot, to show how well coconut can really do when it comes to food. Coconut oil speeds up metabolism, boosts the immune system, and has many other benefits so it's always good to try and incorporate it in your diet in some way. 

Cooking With Coconut Oil
This is the most common way people use coconut oil. You can use coconut oil in all your cooking by replacing other cooking oils (such as vegetable oil, lard, butter etc) with coconut oil. You can also bake with coconut oil too to give you the most amazingly flavoured, moist bakes. This is what the award-winning Raw Organic Extra Virgin Coconut from Coconut Merchant would be perfect for. 


This premium latch jar comes in a 1l glass jar which is plenty to be getting cooking with. Perfect for frying, cooking, baking and roasting, this organic, cold pressed, raw and extra virgin coconut has 0% cholesterol and is multipurpose as it can be used for cooking and health and beauty too. 

What's more, the storage jar is reusable so once you have used your way through this hefty amount of coconut, you can use the jar to store whatever you want, with no wastage. And as with all the Coconut Merchant range, it’s 100% natural, premium quality and ethically sourced. In fact, £2 of every litre of coconut oil sold goes straight to farmers around the world. 


If you're wanting coconut with a hint of chocolate, then the Organic Coconut Jam with Cacao is here for your to spread on anything. Vegan, dairy free, gluten free and amazingly delicious, this spread is made simply with coconut sugar and coconut milk to give a unique caramel sweet flavour with a hint of cacao. 

It can be used on toast, in pastries and more, ever directly out of the jar, if you have a sweet tooth, like me. You could even spread a little on apple for a sweet but fruity treat to give you all the sweetness you fancy, without any nasties. 


And it doesn't stop there, you can also get this gorgeous Organic Coconut Syrup which is caramel sweet, thick like molasses and is organic, preservative free, Non-GMO with a low GI to assist blood sugar management. 

Coconut Merchant's award-winning coconut syrup makes for a delicious alternative to sugary syrups and sweeteners. 100% pure and made from the sap of coconut palm flowers, it is perfect drizzled over pancakes, mixed into porridge or stirred into hot drinks!

To mark how fabulous coconut really is, Coconut Merchant have given me a bundle to give away to one of my readers. This will include the Premium Raw Organic Extra Virgin Coconut 1l Jar, Organic Coconut Jam with Cacao and the Organic Coconut Syrup. For your chance to win, enter via the Rafflecopter form below...

    Adding coconut while cooking rice can give a delicious Caribbean twist (particularly in rice & peas) or Asian twist (such as with Thai sticky rice)
