    Question Calgary Coconut Hunt

    Shop Now
    Next to BACON, coconut appears to be the second most popular word in the recipe forum!! Today I found coconut milk in a small can and a soup size can. PLUS coconut milk powder which I thought was interesting. I'm not sure what to do with that powder yet. I also bought one fresh coconut for $3.00. What I CANNOT find however is coconut oil. Does anyone know where I can find it? Will I need to buy online, and if so, where?
    Thanks!!

    Planet Organic carries several varieties. They have two stores in Calgary (north and south).

    Amaranth and Community natural foods sell it - superstore also has it in the organics section in the fridge. I've used the coconut powder to sprinkle in soups and sauces when I just want a bit of creaminess, but don't want to open up a whole can!

    Try your local health food store, you should be able to find it there. If not, check out Nutiva & Artisana online

    I got mine at Superstore - in the "organic-y, gluten-free, trendy diet" section. Amaranth has about 10 different kinds though. That's been my go-to joint for many of my primal necessities.

    Oh, if anyone is in Edmonton (where I am), Earth's General Store is good for a lot of primal foods, but not meats because they're vegetarian-owned.
