Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Flour Review

Fresh CoconutI don’t cook as often as I should but when I do, I prefer to prepare healthy meals. For the  longest time, I have been using white or wheat flour. In search of a healthier option, I discovered Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Flour.

Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Flour is made of the fiber derived from the coconut, after the oil has been extracted. It is certified organic, unsweetened and unlike many other products, this coconut flour is not treated with sulfites or preservatives. 

organic coconut flourBeing the amateur cook that I am, I was at a loss of what to make using my coconut flour. I turned to the Tropical Traditions (organic flour) recipe section, and I am glad I did. From there, I learned that this flour can be used not only for baking but for entrees, soups, drinks, desserts, dressings and more. I love that they have so many gluten-free recipes! I started off with a recipe I found from their beverage recipes, known as the Banana Coconut Shake

My banana shake was absolutely delicious- the best I have ever tasted! I have also experimented by using my organic coconut flour for coating chicken, tilapia, salmon, shrimp, pancakes, and even pizza! Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Flour smells heavenly. There is a nice texture and it adds an irresistible light, sweet taste.

In addition to smelling and tasting great, Tropical Traditions Organic Flour is a great way to boost your daily intake of fiber and protein. It has more fiber than gluten-based grains. Are your following a gluten-free diet? Tropical Traditions Organic Flour is gluten free and also contains more than 19% non-gluten protein! I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and my doctor recommends I avoid traditional white flour. I am so ecstatic to have found a healthy substitute that my doctors approves and I can truly enjoy.
