Coconut Peanut Butter? {Giveaway}

Organic Coconut Peanut Butter 16 oz. PhotoI have challenged myself in recent months to see if I can switch out something not-so-good, or maybe even good, in our daily life for something better. Sometimes it has been an easy switch – fresh fruit over cookies and ice cream and sometimes it has not.

My most recent experiment was Coconut Peanut Butter from Tropical Traditions. I was motived to try it based on our experience with fresh, off-the-tree coconut in St. Lucia. I never knew that fresh coconut tastes more like a soft almond than it does like dried coconut. So I thought maybe Coconut Peanut Butter would taste similar. But it doesn’t. It tastes like mild peanut butter mixed with coconut flavoring . . . not bad but not what I was expecting.

I used it in peanut butter sandwiches which are a staple in our house. My youngest didn’t know the difference. My middle complained but ate all of his. My oldest – and pickiest – took one bite and wouldn’t eat any more. I guess all in all it would just depend on the person you are feeding it to. I’m sure if I had started younger my boys wouldn’t know the difference, but now they are expecting one flavor and not excited about getting something different.

I do plan to use it to make peanut butter cookies. It’s sweeter than regular peanut butter so I think that would work fine, but it’s also more liquidy – kind of like natural peanut butter where you have to stir it up – but it doesn’t actually ever get all that pasty, more soupy. I think I might have to figure out how to counter that or my cookies might be puddles instead.

Coconut Peanut Butter is definitely better for you than regular peanut butter, but it is a unique, acquired taste so don’t expect your littles to take to it immediately. Tropical Traditions also offers regular organic peanut butter, and that might be a better alternative for the picky eaters in your house.

If you would like to win a jar and try it out yourself, we are giving away a free jar of Tropical Traditions Coconut Butter!
