It's summertime and for me, this is when I spend the most time in the kitchen either cooking or making DIY hair care products. What's great about coconut oil is it can serve as both a cooking ingredient, hair care product, or skin conditioner!
I love using coconut oil in the morning for pancakes. When I'm making my traditional pancakes with eggs and milk, I use Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil to grease the skillet instead of butter. It's a lot healthier and the pancakes do not burn as fast as they do with butter. The coconut oil also adds a nice sweet kick to the pancakes flavor too. I also use it to replace vegetable in most baking recipes for cookies and cakes.
Sometimes when I'm out of eggs, or just want to try something different, I will make eggless pancakes with this (loose, measure to taste) recipe:
Mix together, place in skillet with coconut oil, fry and flip :-)
I also just like to take some coconut oil and put it on my hair. When it's hot outside I will mix some coconut oil in one of those travel size 1oz bottles and add water for a wonderful moisturizing spray. You can also use coconut oil instead of lotion for an after shower moisturizer for both babies and adults.
I love the many things I can do with coconut oil, and I love Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil because it's organic and high quality.
