Artisana Organic Raw Coconut Butter

I promised you more coconut milk news. What could be more pure coconutty than coconut butter. Carolyn Yoder tells us all about it on the sie.

Coconut butter is simply a puree of coconut meat, but the flavor it delivers is anything but simple. Coconut’s naturally occurring complex sugars provide an intense sweet flavor with a prominent tropical twist. It makes for an innovative topping on oatmeal, yogurt and fruit.

Each two tablespoon serving contains 186 calories, 18 grams of fat (16 saturated), an impressive 5 grams of fiber and just 2 grams of protein. Again, this product is clearly not a protein source, but its flavor and healthy fats are a welcome addition to any diet.

She's reviewing Artisana Organic Raw Coconut Butter, one of the company's long line of various nut buttters.
There are great moments in life when you are refreshed and delighted by an old love--when a old song finds its way back into your modern taste and you find yourself touched with a new appreciation and grasp of its beauty. Everyone knows the beauty and wonder of Coconut: electrolized water, oil so smooth and safe it can be used as lotion, and the dense nutrition of the coconut meat. Artisana has defined their Coconut Butter with a signature puree of coconut meat, yeilding a fibrous, densely nutritious spread and a wonderful ingredient in raw desserts, smoothies, savory dishes and snacks. We can't keep our spoons out of our jars. Find a new love in an old favorite. Mix Artisana Coconut Butter with Agave Nectar, Vanilla, and a pinch of Sea Salt for a fantastic raw frosting (sandwich it between two cookies...YUM!!!).
