Chocolate Coconut Oil Frosting
So I took the plunge and ordered 14 lbs of Coconut oil. I bought 7 lbs of Organic Virgin Coconut oil and 7 lbs of Organic Refined Coconut Oil (I am splitting it with my mom). The Virgin Coconut Oil is suppose to have more health benefits but it does have a coconut taste. And although I love coconut I am not sure I want everything I use oil with to taste coconutty (although popcorn popped in virgin Coconut oil is really delicious!!). The refined is more processed and has no flavor.
I know some of you may be wondering why I would be considering eating Coconut Oil for health benefits? I mean, isn’t it all saturated fat? Yes- yes it is, but I have done some research about oils and not all oils are created equal. I seems the saturated fat can be both good and bad- depending on the oil and not all unsaturated fats are good. If you would like to read what I have been reading here are some of my sources.. (more…)
