Nutiva Coconut Manna -- 15 oz
My go-to dessert
I'll have to admit that when I first got this, I thought it was kind of bland.and now I think it's the BEST thing ever. The difference is the first time, my diet was closer to the standard american diet than to nature. A few months ago I started eating closer to the bottom of the food chain and one night, I had a craving for something sweet and there it was, sitting in the cupboard - abandoned. I finished the jar over 3 nights. I just ordered two more jars. All it is is pulverized unsweetened coconut. If it is warm in your house, you might have to stir the oil back into the coconut - kind of like almond butter.

I like this product. I usually mix it with almond butter for a treat. Sometimes I just eat a spoonful plain. Although, it can be a little rich and a little dry and pasty in texture. Works best if you're mixing it with something else.

So suprised that I love this as much as I do - I eat it plain and put it in everything from oat bran to smoothies. Delicious!

I was skeptical but one's gotta try. I tried and I am hooked! The only thing I hate about this product is that it takes a while to heat it up in the oven. Can't microwave this good stuff - kills all the good nutrition.
I use 1.5 tablespoon in 16oz hot coffee (any columbian - don't waste your money on the good stuff like Tim Hortons or Starbucks - just regular coffee). Half packet of splenda or stevia. Heavy cream to whiten the coffee.
Pour everything in a mason jar. Shake, shake, shake the jar and enjoy! Creeeeeeemmmieeee yummmmieeeee coffee that kills hunger for at least 4 hours. Mason jar just makes it easier to travel with.
I love it!

While the taste is very good, it is annoying to prepare. Every time you want to use it you have to soak it in hot water to loosen it, then stir it. Well, I don't know if I had a bad batch or what, but, it never became a creamy, loose consistency that I would've liked. I had to soak it for a very long time, sometimes even repeating it & was still hard in the middle & couldn't stir completely. I don't recommend.
