Organic Coconut Palm Sugar

dsc02389

Natvitas says: “Our coconut palm sugar is produced in Indonesia where farmers have harvested the nectar from coconut palm trees for herbal medicine and food for centuries..Palm sugar is a healthy alternative sweetener that has a lower glycemic index (GI35) than cane sugar, agave or honey…”

Michelle says: Used in recipes as a replacement for sugar, either sweet or savory seems to work perfectly well for this product! I treat it like brown sugar as it does not have much coconut flavor at all! The color looks more raw and natural than regular sugar, plus the “coconut” in the name already puts it higher in the “exotic” scale in my book! I love that is has a lower GI too!

Recipes I’ve used this product in…

Sprinkled on pita and baked to make Home-baked Pita Chips – DELICIOUS with curry!

Goji Berries & Acai Powder

raw ingredients steel cut oats

I made into irish oatmeal for breakfast!

steel cut oats in potThe Goji Berries are lightly sweetened and combined perfectly with the irish oats.

The Acai powder on the other hand provided mildly sweet and a slightly tart herbal flavor. It also gave the lovely purple color!
