Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream Concentrate Review & Giveaway

Tropical Traditions just gave me the opportunity to try another of their great products, Coconut Cream Concentrate! I, once again, was not disappointed with the quality of their products! The Coconut Cream Concentrate was great in baking!



When I got the Coconut Cream Concentrate, it was hardened and separated in the jar. The oil of the coconut had separated and the concentrate hardened up. I contacted Tropical Traditions to find out how to soften it for use. They sent me a link to the following video. This was a huge help in using the Coconut Cream Concentrate!



I followed the instructions in the video to soften the Coconut Cream Concentrate and then began making Cocoa-Nut Peanut Butter Balls that I found a recipe for on their web site. I really liked that this recipe used several things I had from Tropical Traditions. I used the Coconut Cream Concentrate, Raw Honey, and Coconut Flour! I did two things a little bit different in this recipe. I used a little extra Coconut Flour to make the batter thicker and I used mini chocolate chips to roll some of the balls in.



These were so good that I made a double batch of them for a carry-in at work! Many people said they were really good and wanted the recipe. I'd definitely make these again!

The Giveaway

Tropical Traditions would like to give one of my readers their very own 32 oz. jar of their Coconut Cream Concentrate. (retails for $27.00).

Note: Please be sure to leave an email address in your comment if it's not public on your blogger profile.
