Over the past few weeks I’ve shared with you some of our favorite recipes using coconut oil. If you haven’t had a chance to see them yet, check them out here:
Our family has sure enjoyed creating and trying out new recipes using coconut oil over the past month and we want to share with you the delicious coconut oil that we’ve been using!
As most of my loyal readers know by now, I love supporting small businesses. I’m not a big box store kind of gal, I love it when my money helps a family buy their kids new shoes or helps a mom stay at home and raise her family without working outside the home.
I really like that Tropical Traditions is a small family business and that they support small family farms. I honestly and wholeheartedly believe that when a small company (and individual people) put their hearts into their products, a superior product is produced. I’ve tried a lot of coconut oil brands in the past and as soon as I opened the jar and ate a spoonful, I could tell that their coconut oil is a superior product. It is extremely smooth, flavorful, and doesn’t have any chemical aftertaste. I love that this coconut oil is organic and that the oil is extracted using traditional methods.
Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is non-GMO, there are no chemical solvents used in the processing, it is USDA certified organic, is handmade in small batches, and is not refined.
Here is some more information about Tropical Traditions and coconut oil:

Here is a video showing how Tropical Traditions makes their coconut oil:
Tropical Traditions also sells a lot of products other than coconut oil – dried coconut (I purchased some this week and they should be here soon!), coconut flour, whole wheat, coconut cream concentrate, grass fed meats, organic sweeteners, coconut body products, and more. I really want to try their coconut cream concentrate!
They also have a great recipe source on their site. I’ve never seen so many coconut oil recipes listed in one place before, it is awesome! Check out their recipes here.
