    Milk due to its utility in pudding, shredded due to its utility in pudding, and coconut oil due to its utility in cooking. I don't bake and flakes sound intriguing but I have never tried them. Robb Wolf was eating coconut flakes with cacao nibs during his podcast today and sounded like he was enjoying them so I'll have to check them out.

    Also coconut water should get an honorable mention as a drink while doing prolonged exercise.
    Stabbing conventional wisdom in its face.

        I would love to cook some coconut pancakes on coconut oil and top it with coconut butter and coconut flakes and wash it down with coconut milk...

            ALL ALL ALL.

            Seriously, I think this was the "seal the deal" food for me in this program. I'm addicted to anything and everything coconut, always have been. (I'm that girl who smells like suntan lotion all year round. lol)

            But whats mostly in my fridge/pantry is coconut milk, shredded coconut and coconut oil. I have yet to venture into coconut butter though, someone mentioned they got it at whole foods in the nut butter section...that will be the next purchase!

              Dude, have you ever drank a real young coconut? I say this without hyperbole, it's about 1000000000000x better.

              Enjoy!

                    LOVE it!!

                    Love how most of you aren't able to list just 3 - truly awesome. I am a HUGE fan of coconut myself. My next thread that I will start right now will be... "About How many Calories of Coconut do you consume in a day?"

                    Please don't answer here!! Do so in the new thread... this one is meant for your favorite types.

                    I think I am going to go make an omelet and a coconut milk smoothie

                          Hrm... favorite coconut products... ... How about... YES!...

                          haha if I had to choose a favorite simply by volume consumed in it would be

                          Coconut Milk

                          Coconut Oil

                          Shredded Coconut

                          although I wouldn't really say that I really hold those more dear than other kinds of coconut ... Mmmmmcoconutmilkproteinshaaaaaake*droool*

                            Exactly. I think it's one of the best fat sources, but I don't LIKE it, so it's hard to eat enough of it to keep my fat intake up.
