I’ve been trying different Tropical Traditions product for a few months now and the Organic Coconut Peanut Butter is by far my favorite. One, I love peanut butter and two, I love coconut milk and the combination is like magic. I want to eat the peanut butter straight from the jar.
Tropical traditions is made from organic Peanut Butter and organic Coconut. There is nothing else in it, no sweeteners, no fillers, not binders and it’s perfect. Valencia peanuts grown organically by family farmers in New Mexico and Texas. Grown in the dry climate of the southwestern United States, these peanuts are certified organic and free from aflatoxins. The dried coconut is certified organic coconut meat from the Philippines from coconuts that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. I’ve been finding myself having a very hard time not eating it constantly. Let me tell you my experience from the beginning.
Working with Tropical Traditions has been my pleasure. I’ve enjoyed the experience and am excited every time they say I can pick a new product. I spent a little more time looking at each product individually as I made my decision and I found a gem. It arrived and I opened it right away. I pulled back the seal and my first reactions was. EEEWWW!
It looks funny because it is white on the top. Well, it’s organic “Coconut” peanut butter so what was I expecting. Of course I was expecting it to look exactly like peanut butter. I’m a little nut. 😉
I took my spoon and dipped it in and it was love at first bite. MMM. I can’t wait to try out a recipe and make something with it. Tropical Traditions has quite a few recipes on their site and this one will be my first:
4 – 5 servings
Preparation Time: 3 minutes
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup sugar/honey, more or less to taste*
- Dash of salt
- 1/3 cup water
- 4 cups whole milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup Coconut Peanut Butter
Combine dry ingredients in a medium saucepan and whisk in water over medium heat. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly. Boil for 2 minutes. Whisk in Coconut Peanut Butter.
Add milk and whisk and heat until hot, but do not boil. Remove from heat and whisk in vanilla extract. Serve topping with whipped cream.
*If using honey, use less then you would for sugar. Brown sugar may be used.
