    i've got a jar of creamed coconut. as is, it tastes to me like sweet coconut ice. i am still getting around to doing coconut oil as it tastes so vile but this tastes nice. is there anything i can make with it other than eat it neat? could i make a coffee creamer with it?

    I use it to make coconut energy bars. Basically creamed coconut, a bit of coconut oil, dark cocoa, toasted coconut and toasted almonds. The kids love it for a quick pick me up. It tastes like dessert to me LOL!

    Is creamed coconut just taking dehydrated coconut and throwing it in a food processor until it is creamed?

    Yes, the end result would be quite similar to creamed coconut.
    IIRC the commercial stuff has a slightly lower fibre content than dehydrated coconut
    Per 25g : 17g fat, 0.9g fibre, 2g sugars, 2g protein

    cool. I did that and put it in the fridge, then cut it up into pieces and ate it. Next time I am going to add an 80% dark chocolate bar and spread it out on a cookie sheet and put in the fridge. Might add some almonds to get that almond joy, only better, taste.

    Man I love that stuff, I just cut big chunks of it for a quick snack. Love the sound of combining with dark choc and almonds though.

    i am gonna try it with dark chocolate and maybe some toasted almonds for the kids. still kinda like it neat myself tho. if there is 17 g of fat per 25g, does that mean it is a way of taking coconut oil? i still cant manage that neat.

    I have a feeling that your creamed coconut is the same as coconut cream over here (NZ) - basically the whole coconut smashed until it's creamy? The stuff I eat is part hard and part liquid, but when it's mixed together at room temp it turns out like whipped cream. I spoon it onto blueberries and cinnamon, drink it with cocoa and stevia, and add it to smoothies. I don't like it neat - it has a fibrous texture and is very filling.

    Creamed coconut is something different- I love creamed coconut, and find myself eating out of the jar.
