Coconuts Count – One thing I would love to grow in our own backyard is a coconut tree! Honestly! Just the thought of fresh coconuts and all the delicious drinks and foods we could use it for makes my mouth water. Unfortunately, our winters with -40 C. temperatures and months and months of snow probably isn’t going to be very beneficial to the coconut trees I am dreaming about. So…that means that instead we look elsewhere for quality coconut products that our family can use and enjoy all year round. 🙂
During my search for quality coconut products I came across an amazing Canadian company that our family has fallen in love with! Allow me to introduce to you: Naked Coconuts. They are a company that stands out in the crowd and that has even come up with one amazing product that you’d never guess could be made from the coconut. First off, let me tell you what makes Naked Coconuts stand out in the crowd…
They are one of the only coconut oil companies in Vancouver that proudly supports ethical human-only coconut harvesting. (Did you know that it is a common practice to have monkey harvest coconuts around the world?!)
Naked Coconuts creates premium coconut products that are non-GMO, soy-free, gluten-free, low-sodium and of course really, really delicious! That’s a pretty impressive list!
They offer a unique and different selection of coconut products – including coconut-based sauces, pure coconut oils and even coconut ghee!
We have really enjoyed adding some Naked Coconut products into our meals in the past few weeks. The best things about ALL of these products is that you don’t have to figure out how to use them or alter your recipe’s or ways of cooking. They can simply be added in like regular butters, oils and sauces. Just tonight we made some scrumptious homemade tortillas with some Unscented Organic Coconut Oil. There were ZERO leftovers. 😉 I love how easy it is to replace regular ingredients or food items with these healthy, safe and pure products from Naked Coconuts.
As you saw above, Naked Coconut products are all soy-free. I have found soy to be somewhat difficult to avoid…but have wished for a better alternative for many months already. Soy products are often highly processed and have the presence of GMO’s….both things we would like to leave out of our lifestyles. In addition to that, soy allergies are only increasing and right now, more than 3.5 million people have a soy sensitivity or allergy in Canada alone! With stats like that, the Soy Free Seasoning Sauce, and Soy Free Teriyaki Sauce instantly caught my attention. The raw, organic, non-GMO, soy-free, gluten-free substitute with 65 % less sodium than regular soy sauce is going to be finding a permanent place in our home! You might be wondering if it has a coconut taste…or if it tastes different…or weird. The answer is a resounding “Nope!” This soy sauce substitute is enzymatically alive and is made from fermented coconut sap mixed with pure, hand-harvested, natural sea salt. That’s it. Simple. Straightforward. And Deeee-licious!
The Soy-Free Teriyaki Sauce is much the same. It is mouth-watering, natural, healthy goodness that you’re going to love adding in to your meals and recipes. The Teriyaki sauce comes in two flavors – Chili Garlic and Sesame Ginger. We haven’t ventured out to try the Chili Garlic teriyaki sauce yet….but the Sesame Ginger has definitely found its place in our home. These soyless sauces are incredibly versatile and fit with many different dietary needs (including vegan, gluten-free, low sugar content, etc.). They really are a delight to cook and season our food with! For some inspiration, you might want to take a peek at their recipe ideas. (I printed out the Peanut Butter Granola Bars with Salted Chocolate Sauce recipe today!)
