Ah, coconut - it's like a tropical vacation for your taste buds. Just a few bites and you're transported to a place with palm trees, sandy beaches, and endless sunshine. Okay, maybe not endless sunshine, but you get the point. It's incredibly easy to work with, great in muesli, baked goods, curries and stir-fries alike. There's no need for any added sugars when the natural flavour is already so great.
