10 Delectable Recipes with Creamed Coconut that you’ll love

Creamed coconut is an essential ingredient in any Conscious Kitchen. It imparts a luxurious, rich, creamy infusion of tropical delectableness to just about any dish.

I use it in sweets, savouries, desserts, main meals, sauces, breakfasts and soups and couldn’t imagine life without it!

I am talking CREAMED COCONUT here, which comes in a solid block form. It’s a little different to coconut cream (sounds similar and can be confusing!). Creamed coconut is actually the ground down flesh of a mature coconut, created into a pure, semi-solid white concentrated block of cream that melts on heating. It’s naturally sweet, available in good health food stores or online. Read about it here: All About Creamed Coconut 

Creamed coconut will transform your culinary experience.

What actually is Creamed Coconut (versus coconut cream & coconut butter)?

    Who knew creamed coconut had so many savory & sweet applications? That blueberry & lemon fudge is stunning!

    I wonder if creamed coconut is the same as coconut butter? It looks and cooks the same. Thanks for the lovely recipes, they all look so good!

    • It is pretty much the same stuff Linda, yes. There is usually a bit of coconut oil with the creamed coconut though (that separates) – you can use coconut butter & creamed coconut inter-changeably. The creamed coconut is often quite a bit less pricy though 😉

  3. All these recipes look amazing! I’m especially excited to try the desserts. 🙂
