6 Great Uses of Coconut Oil

17. Go Coco – 6 Great Uses of Coconut Oil

We love all things Coconut in our household and buy a lot of our Coconut products from Coco Wonder at the Legaspi Market on Sunday morning. We buy Coconut Flour – we generally make our own, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Sugar and Coconut Amino Sauce (great as a Soy Sauce substitute for Adobo and marinating chicken).

We also buy from Landmark. We buy Coconut Water without added sugar, cooking Coconut Oil, Coconut Milk and Coconut Cream Cream – always check the ingredients label.

6 Great Ways to Use Coconut Oil

1. Brush your Teeth and Oil Pulling

We use Extra Virgin Coconut Oil for brushing our teeth and I also oil pull with it where you swirl it around your mouth. This pulls harmful bacteria, fungus and other organisms out of the mouth, teeth and gums.

2. For your Skin

The Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) in Coconut Oil acts as a natural skin conditioner. Deeply penetrating and moisturizing, they protect against skin damage and helps with anti-aging.

3. In your Primed Gel for Run Races or Triathlons

My Primed Home-Made Gel was my main source of fuel for my Malaysia Ironman in Langkawi which was key factor in my finishing strongly.

4. For Primed Dark Chocolate Crunch

See recipe for Primed Fruit and Nut Dark Chocolate Crunch.

5. For Cooking Most Dishes

We use it for cooking our Primed Banana Pancakes with Coconut Flour and my delicious Primed Filipino Fried Rice.

6. Primed Pink Smoothie

We also include it in our smoothies like our Primed Pink Fruit Smoothie. I also love to add Malunggay into all my smoothies now for the added health benefits associated with the Miracle Tree.

I am sure there are so many other fabulous ways to use Coconut Oil. What else do you use your Coconut Oil for? Please share with us.
