As part of my Non-GMO Month Dedication to Tracy, I promised to certify one new product, making sure it was something The Daily Grind carries.
I asked for a list of everything Tracy ordered for the The Daily Grind, and when I got the list I was beaming with excitement. So many awesome things, so much care for what locals have access to!
Because I saw this product in there when I was home in September (and have especially close ties to the company), I wanted to give the full stamp of approval for it.
As a reminder, here is what Certified Gutsy means.
Certified Gutsy Nutiva Organic Coconut Manna
organic whole coconut puree
“We call this delicious puréed coconut butter “coconut manna” because if ever there was a food from heaven, this is it. An incredibly tasty, whole superfood made of pure, dried coconut flesh; you can enjoy it straight from the jar, or warm it up to spread the goodness! This tropical melt-in-your-mouth treat contains fiber, protein and nourishing fats.” (Nutiva) You can find this product on Amazon, in most natural grocery stores, via Thrive Market, and (of course) at The Daily Grind.
100% organic and Non-GMO Project Verified, contain no cholesterol and are made from fresh coconuts. By nature, the product is vegan, salt-free, gluten-free, dairy free, corn free, soy free, and free of all nuts. There is no added sugar, and a serving contains just 1g of sugar total.
This product is an ideal “everything” spread that can replace cream, cream cheese and butter, you can also use it in smoothies, smoothie bowls, Vegan frosting, sauces, dressings, desserts and baked goods. Also, these 35 ways to use Coconut Manna are legit. As for me? Straight spoonin’ + fat bombs.
Coconut Manna works for almost for everyone. But for those of you with active SIBO, you’ll need to proceed with caution if you plan on having more than a tablespoon or two per sitting. Coconut Oil is perfectly fine, but coconut flour and dried coconut/shredded coconut can cause problems. This is a great option for those who need an alternative to nuts. Coconut is also wonderful for those who have to follow the stringent AIP Diet (and this product was a staple dessert when I had to follow the diet).
Do you include Coconut Manna in things or do you prefer to just spoon it like me?
