Yes, you heard me right. Not peanut butter, not almond or cashew butter …. COCONUT BUTTER!!!
Nikki’s Coconut Butter
I first heard about Nikki’s coconut butter a few months ago whilst casually surfing the ‘net, and have wanted to try it ever since. I am a huge fan of everything coconut, so I was pretty sure I would like the product. Their coconut butter is also soy free, gluten free, dairy free and egg free, making it perfect for someone with these intolerances. The hard part was actually deciding what flavor to get.
They have 5 flavors:
-Pumpkin Spiced Donut
-Macadamia Nut Cookie
-Vanilla Cake Batter
-Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie
-Honey Pecan Pie
Yeah, they all sound amazing right? After hours of arduous decision making (kidding), I finally chose to get the pumpkin spiced donut. And I am glad I did. IT IS AMAZING. The consistency is definitely not what I expected though. I was expecting a creamy and smooth product, sort of like how you would imagine peanut butter. But it is actually quite hard, although honestly that does not bother me much at all. And you could also microwave some of the butter or heat it up in a pan to make it creamier and more spreadable. I have taken to just eating it straight out of the jar with a spoon hehe, but you can use it on bread, crackers, in smoothies, and in a variety of desserts (which is something I really want to test it with!!).
As with all things though, even though this is a healthy product, it doesn’t mean you can eat as much as you want of it. It is relatively high in calories and fat, so make it work for how much food/calories you need a day. Overeating on something healthy is still overeating, so be sensible. I find that eating desserts with wholesome ingredients such as Nikki’s Coconut Butter makes it easier to stop because it does not have all the same nasty chemicals and preservatives in a lot of processed and junk foods which make you crave them. The only bad thing about them is that they only currently ship within the US and to Canada, but hopefully they will be able to ship worldwide soon enough!
