April 2011

There is something about the sweet smell of coconut that reminds me of summer. From pina coladas, to coconut scented suntan lotion, the smell of coconut just puts me in a relaxed state of mind. Since my Blogmania theme is “Summer Lovin’”, I knew I had to include Tropical Traditions in my list of great sponsors!

Tropical Traditions is well known for their high quality, organic coconut products and other organic food and household items. I was so excited to have the opportunity to try the shredded coconut from Tropical Traditions, since I have been VERY pleased with their coconut oil and all natural oxygen bleach in the past.

Check out this one gallon resealable 3.5 lb. container of organic dried and shredded coconut that someone will win during Blogmania:

Tropical Traditions was also kind enough to send me a pail of my own. When I opened the lid, I was greeted by that sweet, summery aroma that I love so much; unfortunately once I turned and looked out the window I was reminded that we still have a ways to go until I can break out the flip-flops. The coconut is clearly very high quality and I cannot wait to begin using it myself very soon. I am now set on coconut for a while; I love how easy it is to store this container as well as use only what I need and seal it back up, nice and tight! In the past I have gone through quite a bit of coconut to make homemade protein bars, but there are tons of recipe ideas on the Tropical Traditions site to give you some ideas on how you might use it. I think I am going to use it to make a fruit smoothie next. Perhaps I will combine the coconut with pineapple, strawberries, banana, nonfat yogurt, truvia, and some whey protein powder! I bet that will be delicious!

In addition to checking out their website, which is full of fabulous recipes and other helpful information, you can keep up with Tropical Traditions here :
