In the world of paleo dessert recipes they often start out by "creaming" coconut oil and honey, as you would creme together butter and sugar. Well really, if you're in a pitch or just need something simple to quench your sweet tooth you can stop right there. Mix a spoonful of coconut oil with a tbsp of maple syrup or honey, your choice, and insert spoon into mouth. That's it. Now you might be thinking its going to have a super strong coconut flavor-no- and why would I eat a spoonful of coconut oil? Well, let me tell you.
Coconut oil ingestion has shown to increase your good cholesterol, it can help with maintaining blood sugar, and it can even help with weight loss, so grab a spoon and through some in your smoothie.
And if you don't want to take my word for it, you can always see what Dr. Oz has to say about it.
