I’m reading, and yet I still don’t understand:
After scooping it out and taste-testing it straight up, I can’t tell how it’s different from Coconut Oil!
It’s not super sweet, tastes very butter-y (like the oil) and melts like crazy when it touches heat.
Where’d it go?!
That said, it made the fluffiest, creamiest, silkiest breakfast bowl ever.
- 1/3 cup oat bran, 1 cup water
- 1/3 can crushed pineapple in natural juices
- 3 TB egg whites
- NuStevia Powder (couple pinches)
- 1 teaspoon Coconut Manna
I read that you’re supposed to use this like any nut butter. But honestly, I can’t imagine treating this jar like PB – spreading it on bread, dipping chocolate in it, etc….

Today’s been mellow – a quick audition this morning and a little Skype session with my nephews in NJ. I’m going to use one of our Living Social Deals for a big dinner tonight so I ate a light late afternoon snack – Tofutti Cream Cheese and Strawberry Rice Nectar Spreadable Fruit on CG Bran Crispbread
When I was little the other kids thought it was gross to eat cream cheese and jam together. I embrace it now, just like my preference for underripe pears (same with plums, peaches, and nectarines too).
Mmmm….not too sweet and juicy!
Did you know that Manna is “the name of a food that God provided for the Israelites during their travels in the desert as recorded in the Bible”?! If it’s that old, someone has got to help me figure this out!!!
