5 Creative Ways To Use Coconut Oil Right Now:

Over the years I make some yummy recipes up using coconut oil. I made a cherry and nut granola treat with it. The nutty cherry granola was so yummy.

Here Are A Few Things Coconut Oil is Also Good For:

Good Old Fashioned Cooking: Firstly, frying and adding to your baking is great alternative to fats and oils. How about trying this recipe: Ridiculously Good Coconut Cornbread To Warm You Up. Following the popular hygge style, Selasi’s recipes will provide you with fresh inspiration to create healthier, comforting winter meals that can be shared with family and friends, with minimal fuss. Today I am sharing their Ridiculously Good Coconut Cornbread with you. How tasty!? Ridiculously Good Coconut Cornbread up for brunch.

Also, this Lollipop Coconut Chicken By Selasi Gbormittah. Selasi Gbormittah, The Great British Bake Off’s break-out star, motorcyclist and banker, has partnered with Vita Coco to provide winter warming recipes with a hint of summer flavour.

Lip Balm. Secondly, if you have dry lips you can pop a bit on them to soften them up a little. It feels nice on your lips too. Better than Vaseline! Also a good idea to use in Winter to save lips from getting dry. I hate getting chapped lips!! When a piece of skin pulls on your lips so you try to bit it off, and it pulls even more: OUCH!!

Conditioning Your Hair And Scalp. Thirdly, are coconut oil good for hair? Pop a few teaspoons in your hand let it melt and rub it into the roots of your hair. This helps condition your hair. Do you have a dry scalp? It works great for this too. Simply place a few teaspoons in your hands, it melts in seconds and then rubs it into your scalp. Leave for a little while then wash out. My Daughter had a dry scalp a few years ago and this works great!! First time too.

The next day you may want to wash your hair again as it will be slightly greasy but no worries as it has done your scalp the world of good. You could also try using it before shampooing and it might not come out greasy as it did when we tried it as we used it more like conditioner.

You can also add other ingredients to it for different hair ideas: 5 best ways of using coconut oil for hair for stimulating hair growth, hair treatment, dandruff, split ends and damaged hair.

Skin Moisture:

Skin Moisture. Fourthly, adding some moisture to your skin if you have dry skin. Again works great and softens up your skin nicely. A good way to remove some stubborn make up marks off your skin is to add a little to some tissue paper.

Massage Oil. Last but not least, it feels so nice and smooth. It also melts in your hands in seconds.

Secondly, Chilled Mango, Coconut And “Pearl” Puddings By Anjum Anand: Today I am sharing Chilled mango, coconut and “pearl” puddings byTV Chef and Cookery Writer Anjum Anand. This recipe is from her new cookbook – I Love India – which launched on 9th March.

“Like everyone, I have friends who prefer to avoid gluten and dairy and when they come round I need to have a special think about what to serve them. This is one of the desserts I will go to when mangoes are in season; easy, tasty and lovely after an Indian or spicy Asian meal. It is based on a popular Chinese dessert we see a lot in India – simply a light mango cream with lovely gelatinous tapioca pearls, mango and freshly grated coconut.

This recipe proves again that, if you have good-quality, inherently tasty ingredients, you don’t need a lot more to make a fabulous dish. This is one of my summer favourites, really refreshing. It thickens overnight, so you may want to thin it with a bit of milk (and then taste for sweetness) before serving.” Chilled Mango, Coconut And “Pearl” Puddings By Anjum Anand.

    I love coconut oil; I do use it as a lotion and on my lips but I also started oil pulling when I brush my teeth too. Funny enough I rarely think to cook with it!
