Vegan MoFo Day 25: Ode to the Coconut

I am a big fan of Coconut. I make a lot of curry in my place so I use a lot of coconut milk. It adds such flavour! I always use the low fat version though FYI. I've always just used shredded coconut or coconut milk. I've never dabbled any further into the wonders of coconut. I knew about the water being filled with electrolytes but I'm not one to buy into any fads like that. So I haven't run out to buy a case of it. (Not to say its not good, I'm just not that into it).

My friend Natasha introduced me to Coconut ice cream. And for that I'm forever in her debt. I didn't go with her recommendation on the flavour or brand, I went with Larry & Luna's Coconut Bliss. It really is blissful. Its sweetened with Agave Nectar instead of cane sugar. That's what sold me. There's only like 5 ingredients, and I know every one of them. 

There's a little visual for yah. I believe I have already blogged about my bliss when eating this delicious ice cream. Which by the way is vegan, gluten free and soy free. Coconut Bliss check it out there.

Now onto my current explorations into the good ole Coconut. My friend Jessica over at The Vegan Project mentioned Coconut Yogurt!!! She even went so far as to say it is a "game changer". Let me tell you, it is. Plain and simple. Coconut ice cream is yummy. I got the vanilla flavour and put it on top of some fresh raspberries and topped it with hemp seeds. YUMMMMMM

Holy Moly ppl! So yummy! Check out all the flavours they have. I only saw 2 kinds at Choices. But I'm sure there are others out there. So Delicious really is So Delicious.

Doesn't that look tasty? I really wanted to have that this morning for breakfast with granola but they always put sugar in it. And I'm not into eating cane sugar very often or lots of it. There is some in the yogurt already so more is not necessary. SO that being said, I'm going to make my own granola!!! I have some ideas on what to use. I'm pretty stoked about it to be honest. Too bad I'm busy till Thursday!!! Maybe I can prep it before I go out tonight.........................hmmmmmm.

Anyways, I hope you enjoyed my Ode to the Coconut. Its useful to note that Coconut is high in saturated fats so don't go crazy with it. For milk, get the low fat version. It still has lots of flavour. Everything in moderation I always say.
