What are ways to use coconut oil?
Because of its high melting point, it can be used in any of your favorite recipes. It has a subtle flavor, so it won’t overpower your meal with a strong coconut flavor. Go ahead and substitute it for most recipes calling for oil. It’s great in stir-fries, smoothies, protein shakes, and most baking recipes. My husband’s favorite is sautéed shrimp with cayenne pepper. My favorite is to use the oil to ‘stove pop’ my popcorn.
