Niulife Creamed Coconut is certified organic whole coconut meat, in concentrated form. The white coconut flesh is dried to remove the water and then ground to a fine paste or "nut butter". Creamed Coconut has a smooth creamy consistency due to its high (70%) fat content. It is therefore a rich dietary source of healthy coconut oil. Note: this is a food, not a cooking oil. If you use high heat, it will burn. Creamed Coconut is very versatile. Mix 1 or 2 teaspoons with water or juice to make a creamy coconut milk drink or add it to coffee/cocoa as a non-dairy creamer. It is an excellent ingredient for cooking and baking. Because of its low moisture content it can be mixed straight into the batter or dough of breads and pastries. It is great as a thickener added to curries or stir-fries and enhances the flavour of soups. It can be blended in smoothies, mixed with melted chocolate, made into ice cream or spread on toast or crackers for a snack. In fact, it is so delicious that many people just eat it by the spoonful, straight from the jar. Note: In colder weather Creamed Coconut will become hard due to its high content of natural coconut oil and fibre. It will quickly soften up with a little warming. Stir well if separated. Does not need refrigeration.
