  • Eating Coconut Oil?

    I've heard a lot of people say they eat coconut oil. Do they mean just straight out of the container? Mine is solid, I'm guessing that's regular with all the sat. fat. Is it tasty? It smells really good, but eating it?

    I often eat it straight out of the jar. If I am starving, and trying to fight off a junk-carb craving, a spoonful of it does the trick.

    I also put a spoon of it in coffee sometimes (weird I know...but it melts down and I can drink it) and blend it in my protein shakes.

      I eat a spoonful in the morning and anytime I need to fight off a carb-craving like Phil-SC. I find if I forget in the morning I start to get hunger sooner in the day. Usually I eat a nice breakfast and I'm not really hungry until dinner. If I forget my cocunut oil I notice a mid-afternoon hunger craving sometimes.

        The taste of it on its own doesn't do much for me. Melt it, stir in cocoa powder and let set. Boom, coconut oil chocolate. Heaven, no sugar. Careful if you like dark chocolate, you wont stop.

          I'm an idiot. I added coconut oil to ICED coffee one day in liquid form. Well duh! If it goes below a certain temp is goes back to being a solid and I had little chunks of it floating around in my iced coffee. I drank it anyway because I didn't want to waste it or the organic heavy cream I put in my coffee.

            I make little chocolates made of half and half coconut oil and 85% chocolate. Yum! Melt them together and pour into ice cube trays or similar

              when I've blended it into a shake it always seems to solidify into hard little pebbles. any ideas?

                I made something similar today. Coconut oil, cream, cocoa powder and chopped strawberries. Mixed everything and put it in the fridge for a bit. Voilą coconut oil mousse au chocolat.

                    I'd never tried a spoonful until just now. I wrote in my journal that I am hungry atm, but waiting for a big dinner to eat. You guys lied though. A spoonful didn't work. It took two. So good, so buttery. Mmmmm. Good lip moisturizer too.

                          I just made some coconut oil candy. Coconut oil, almond butter, and unsweetened baker's chocolate. If you like dark chocolate, it's pretty good. Yummy!

                          Oh, and I put it in the freezer in a muffin tin.

                            Agreed, whenever I mix cocoa powder with cream or coconut milk it makes this incredible mouse/ truffle which goes down way to easily.

                              Yummos!! That sounds super good, Jo! I shall have to try it...
                              I eat coconut oil by mixing a blob of it really well with a spoonful of coconut flakes, pinch of cocoa nibs and some frozen blueberries. Refridgerate for a bit, until the coconut oil hardens, and the berries soften--its kind of like those dipped ice cream cones--crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside! Haha, well, sort of... :P Anyway, its really good!
