Coconut can be consumed as coconut milk, unsweetened shredded coconut, dried coconut meat, coconut oil and more. Coconut milk can be a great dairy or milk alternative as it is typically creamy and satisfying, especially in smoothies and sauces. Shredded coconut or dried coconut meat can be used in trail mixes, energy bars, oatmeal and desserts. Coconut oil works great in high-heat cooking, and works great for pan-searing fish, chicken and sauteed vegetables. When choosing coconut products, look for minimal added ingredients such as sugar or numerous thickening agents.
