You put the lime it the coconut and drink ’em both up. Ah, I love that song, it makes me want to dance. My love for coconut is just as strong… and it doesn’t have to be in a Pina Colada for me to enjoy it! But that is one of my fav ways! 😉
Just yesterday I found a video that will give me an even greater love for this sweet treat! I am seriously giddy and I can not wait to go out and buy a coconut or two!!
What is stopping me you ask? Well, for the third, or maybe the fourth day in a row is raining cats and dogs and I am feeling a bit achy with a sore throat. Who knows. Maybe I will venture out in just a bit when the rain lets up.
Oil pulling the strong come of an ancient Ayurvedic practice is all the rage right now. I admit I have become a follower. The Hindu people are really savvy, what proof do I have of that? The Kama Sutra is actually a part of their Bible! HELLLOOO!
I have made oil pulling a part of my morning routine for over a month. My teeth are slightly and I mean just slightly whiter. But I continue to do it because it is improving my gum health. My gums used to bleed every time I brushed. I noticed a few days ago, they hadn’t been bleeding at all for a week or more.
For the last six months or more I have been reading about the benefits of coconut oil on hair and skin, and of course in food! While I was home at Christmas, I bought a large jar of it. It is impossible to find here in Serbia as far as I have heard. It is an hours drive to find coconut milk, and I had never even heard of coconut butter before. But!!! I just found a video on how to make it. I am thrilled.
I can’t wait to buy a coconut and give it a go. Especially since the oil I have been using is really poor quality. There is no coconut aroma or taste, and I wonder what process it went through to lose all that yumminess. I am sure it wasn’t the healthiest way to go. But it was my first time buying it.
Now, I can do it all myself and I know it will be healthy!
If you can find a coconut you can make the oil or butter or milk! Get to it. No more excuses friends!
Bonus Classic Coconutty Music!
Ah, a slumber party like that would be awesome! Of course a long lie in the next day would be key as well. 😉
I’ve heard that oil pulling tasted absolutely foul – true? Good that it’s helping your gums though! Happy Easter!
The kind I bought is tasteless. I will let you know when I make it from scratch. But I love coconut, so I am pretty sure I will like it.
We go through tons of coconut butter so I’m definitely going to try this. I don’t really like Piña Coladas but I’d kill for a Margarita right now! Or maybe a Mojito…
I actually only like Virgin Pinas.. I don’t like rum. Wish we were closer. I used to be a bar tender. I would make you whatever you like! 😉
