Tropical Traditions Organic Coconut Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

Tropical Traditions organic coconut peanut butter is made from organic peanuts and organic coconut and that is it. There are no sweeteners, no preservatives, no binders, and no fillers. With Tropical Traditions organic coconut peanut butter you know exactly what you are eating.

When I received the Tropical Traditions coconut peanut butter I noticed that it was liquidy. Now, according to their label it is normal for the oils to separate. All you have to do is stir the oils back in and you have the normal consistency of peanut butter.

I stirred and I stirred and it was still liquidy,  so I put it in the fridge thinking that would help. It did solidify some and so I began to stir yet again only to have a very liquid peanut butter. I don't know if this is normal but I figured it had something to do with the Florida heat. Overall I don't see this as a bad thing it only means no PB&Js.

Since the coconut peanut butter was liquid and was not sweet I figured it would taste great in a smoothie. A chocolate banana coconut peanut butter smoothie!!! I am a chocoholic and my weakness is anything that combines chocolate and peanut butter. The smoothie was simple: frozen banana, cocoa powder, organic coconut peanut butter, milk, and a little bit of sugar. This smoothie was delicious. I love the flavor that the organic coconut peanut butter brings to it.

I also decided to try the coconut peanut butter on top of ice-cream. I know, what a way to ruin something that is healthy for you, but I couldn't help it.

I poured the peanut butter on top of the ice-cream and it hardened. It ended up being like those store bought ice cream toppings but more delicious. The peanut butter did take over the ice-cream flavor so I would suggest sticking to a plain flavor like vanilla or chocolate.

Even though the consistency was not what I expected I still love this product. I think this coconut peanut butter will be great to add to cakes, breads, and even cookies.
