|Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a healthy and nutritious addition to nearly every area of your life.|
Coconut oil has so many uses! It is much healthier than hydrogenated oils like Crisco but can be used in many recipes as a replacement for butter. Here are more cool ideas for coconut oil:
Popcorn - Use for popping corn like the movie theaters of old. So good!
Pancakes - Use to top your pancakes instead of butter.
Oatmeal - Add a dollop to your oatmeal in place of butter or margarine
Grilling - Coat, fish, chicken or shrimp with coconut oil before placing on the grill.
Deep Frying-Coconut oil can take higher temperatures in a deep fryer. Try it for shrimp and chicken.
