A few years ago I got rid of all the “vegetable” and canola oil in my pantry because I couldn’t figure out what the oils were made out of.  Have you ever read the ingredient list on canola oil — it says “canola oil”! Gee, thanks!   I went looking for alternatives and now I keep olive oil, grapeseed oil and coconut oil in my pantry.   My preferred brand of coconut oil is Tropical Traditions.   I usually order coconut oil from them in a 5 gallon bucket.

 


Gold Label Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Win 1 quart of  Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil starting tomorrow!

Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil.  Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their
website:

What is Virgin Coconut Oil
?  You can also watch the video they produced about Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil:

Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the  advantages of buying coconut oil online.

Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.

Coconut oil is unique in that it solidifies at 76 degrees.  In the winter, it’s solid and in the summer, it’s liquid.   This quality also means that coconut oil is perfect for making homemade Magic Shell!   As soon at the mixture hits the cold ice cream, it begins to harden.  I love it!

 

Homemade Magic Shell
Ingredients
  • 1¼ cups chocolate chips
  • ½ cup coconut oil
Instructions
  1. Combine chips and oil in a small pot.
  2. Melt over low heat.
  3. Allow to cool slightly before using on ice cream (or it will melt the ice cream).
  4. Store leftovers in a jar. You may need to re-heat it if your kitchen is below 76 degrees.

Come back tomorrow for a chance to win a quart of Tropical Traditions coconut oil to make your Magic Shell for a summer treat!
