We use coconut oil quite a bit in our cooking, but I've never used it in drinks before! These are creative ideas.

Nancy Chan 14/8/15 13:16

I have used fresh homemade coconut oil for cooking but never for any drink. The coconut you used to add to your drink, it is the same as the homemade one?

Medeja 14/8/15 13:24

I actually heard from my colleague that coconut oil makes coffee taste great :)

Arjunan Akilandeswari 14/8/15 13:34

SavoringTime in the Kitchen 14/8/15 19:28

I put unsweetened flaked coconut in my smoothie almost every morning but I love your idea of adding coconut oil instead and for a variety of drinks! Isn't is amazing how not long ago we were being told to stay away from coconut oil and eggs. I want to try the one with cocoa first :)

Pam 14/8/15 19:32

Great uses for coconut oil! I will be looking for it soon. Thanks for sharing!

Monica 15/8/15 16:48

This makes me think of how some places put a dab of butter on coffee, something I read about a few months back. I have to admit I've stuck with olive oil and canola but I have heard a lot about how coconut oil is good for you. You've definitely got me thinking with your creative ideas.
