Recipes and Tips for Using
Coconut Oil Supreme™

The recipes and formulas offered on the website provide some suggestions for using coconut oil, both as part of a healthier diet and also for skin care. Some of the recipes (like most desserts) don't really fall into the "health food" category, but as a baker I felt compelled to include them. An occasional dessert is probably not too detrimental for most people and at least if they incorporate coconut oil they are probably not quite as bad for you. (I will be adding additional recipes as time permits.) I have also included a "sources" section for some of the items referenced in the recipes. Your comments and contributions are always welcome. If you have a coconut-related recipe or a unique use which you have found for coconut oil which you would like to share, please email it to me.

As a general note, I measure most ingredients by weight. I use a scale which weighs in either ounces or grams, but I prefer to weigh in grams since several of the small electronic kitchen scales will weigh in increments of 1 gram. For example, a tablespoon of coconut oil weighs about 13 grams and it is much easier to add this amount by weighing rather than using a measuring spoon and trying to be sure that you scrape everything off of the spoon.

SUGGESTION FOR MEASURING SOLID COCONUT OIL

When coconut oil is cooled much below 76°F (the temperature at which it solidifies) it not only becomes solid but actually rather hard. Oil which has been refrigerated is quite hard and rather brittle. After the coconut oil hardens the easiest way I have found to scoop it out is to take a tablespoon (not a measuring spoon, but a large soup type spoon) and scrape it repeatedly across the surface. As the oil is scraped off it takes on a paste like consistency which makes it easy to measure or to cream together with butter.

SUBSTITUTING COCONUT OIL FOR SHORTENING OR VEGETABLE OIL

I have had success using coconut oil instead of vegetable oil or shortening by substituting as follows:

To substitute for vegetable oil, use the amount of oil called for in the recipe, melt the coconut oil and be sure that the other ingredients (eggs, liquids, etc.) are at room temperature or at least warm enough so that they do not cool the coconut oil enough to make it solidify.

To substitute for shortening, I use a combination 1/2 butter and 1/2 coconut oil. (Actually the amount of coconut oil can be reduced by about 25%, so in a recipe calling for 1 cup of shortening I would use 1/2 cup butter and 3/8 cup of coconut oil. If you want to use all coconut oil 3/4 cup of coconut oil should work as a substitute for 1 cup of shortening.)

As I have indicated above, I am a great proponent of measuring ingredients by weight rather than volume. Measurements which could be tedious if measured by volume become simple when measured by weight. You will also find that your results are more consistent.

Note about Graham Cracker Recipe: As a child (and an adult) I always enjoyed Graham crackers but quit eating them years ago when I could no longer find any commercially baked ones which didn't contain hydrogenated oils. After a lot of searching I finally found a recipe which with some modification produced a really excellent Graham cracker. If you like Graham crackers these are well worth the effort it takes to make them.

I'm back to buying the best! I tried another brand coconut oil brand claiming to be "virgin" and highest quality - it was TERRIBLE & tasted like soap!! I forced myself to choke down 16oz before relegating the rest to cooking oil status. Just *thinking* about making my morning "butter coffee" with your sweet coconut oil supreme again makes me feel happy! Though I thought to save $, it ended up being a costly mistake & hard-to-swallow lesson! C.B.

Bought several coconut oils from health food stores. Although they were organic, the smell and taste were awful and had to throw them out. When I saw the sample size of coconut supreme I thought it was perfect to try first before spending money on a product I wasn't sure of. (customer who first bought sample.) M.S.

I am a nurse, I had a patient a few nights ago who let me use some of her coconut oil supreme after I commented on how nice her lotion smelled. She wanted me to get an extra medication cup and fill it with a few scoops to take home and try. I love how it moisturizes my over dry over washed nursing hands. I am going to try it in my dog's food also, he is always itchy. I will let you know! I am also purchasing a jar for my mother who has a lot of allergies to products. Thanks!! A.D.

My husband and I love this product! We've tried other coconut oils and none of them match the quality and taste. We also love that it is available in such a large quantity! S.S.

I am ordering these two samples and having them sent to one of my dearest friends because I want her to try these two products. I have become a walking 'advertisement' for Coconut Oil Supreme!! ... I am a repeat customer because I love, love, love your products! D. W.

This is my second order. Yours is the first Coconut Oil I have tried, but I can't imagine any other company's product being better. Your Cococnut Oil Supreme has such a delicate flavor. I use it now also as a skin moisturizer and have fallen in love with it's ultra-light fragrance. Wish I had discovered your company sooner! Linda D.

You offer the best selection with the highest quality. I love this company ...I've been a long time customer and absolutely love your products. I highly recommend to anyone who asks. You're the best out there. For me quality far exceeds the cost! S.N.

You carry the absolute best coconut based products available, and your coconut oil is head and shoulders better than any other oil available. S.J.

Thanks for your good work in making this good oil available online... I luv the coconut oil from your store -- its clarity and and smooth consistency (almost like water), fresh natural taste and mild fragrance, and quality is the best one I've found... it's the best of the best!! A regular / longtime customer now, Sharon S.

Just wanted to say I love your coconut oil. I have been trying several brands and I bought a small quantity from each. I noticed how crystal clear your oil is when it's in its melted state. The other oils were yellow, cloudy or just disgusting looking. Thanks for a great product and will be ordering again soon. M.S.

You have the most delicious tasting coconut oil I have ever tasted. I tried 5 different brands. You're the best!

Fabulous product - much better flavor than other oil available.

Now I know what real coconut oil should taste like.

Thank you for being a great source for the best oil on earth!

Thank you for your great product and wonderful service.

Tried them all and yours is the best.
