Coconut Oil Recipes for better health

Every time we sit down to pen something about Coconuts, we’re surprisingly baffled at the neverending goodness they yield. Which is why today we’ll be exploring the healthy, energizing and flavoursome alternative that Coconut Oil is, to our other fatty oils and butters.

It is no secret how versatile and miraculously nourishing coconut oil is, and it is quite rightly called the elixir of life. Making it a regular part of our dietary routine can help revive gut health and improve immunity while supercharging metabolism like nothing else can. Rich in antioxidants, it is a natural, vegan and gluten-free option for health junkies, with exceptional flavour at that. And while we can go on and on about how incredible it is, here are some quick (mostly), fun and scrumptious coconut oil recipes for an instant energy boost. Read on, try them out and let us know how you like them!
