Morning Nucks

I also drink coconut oil in coffee and tea and I find it rank in both drinks...I need to drink it very quickly in just a few sips, while stirring after each sip to mix the oil in, otherwise I will feel sick.
I love the taste of coconut, just not the oily part.
The things we do :roll:

:gigglesnshit:


I know what you mean. I could stir it for 10 minutes and the oil is still on top. Swish and swallow. :gigglesnshit:

Coconut oil also makes me cough sometimes, as does olive oil. It’s a common thing apparently.

Tried a new tea from TK Maxx. Never seen it in any food shops before. It’s really nice.

Looks like coconut is the new panacea . . . . tho granted, its an acquired taste.
You can drink its 'water' (the clear refreshing liquid in the centre of the fruit)
You can drink its 'milk' - the thick white juice from the pulped flesh - then use the fibrous remnants in baking, quite delish!
You can extract its oil which has a multitude of uses.
Gosh.

OR milk substitutes? Almond milk, Oat milk, Flaxseed milk, Coconut milk, or Rice milk?

Cuppa cha!! With sugar.

I've yet to find an alternative sweetener for tea and coffee which doesn't leave an aftertaste.

I have and I can't say I like it tbh. It's a lot healthier than sugar, comes from some South American plant I think, but it's extremely sweet and just doesn't taste right. I rather go without sweetener at all. I even tried it in a cake once and it just about uneatable.
It comes in powder form and in little tablets...One tablet or one small teaspoon of powder per cup of coffee/tea....still, it's rank.

No, and I don't know anyone who has either. I should, or at least find out more about it.

This is what I find with other sweeteners that I've tried so I'll give this a miss. Thanks Holly :more beer:

Thanks guest for the suggestion, Holly wouldn't have shared her experience without it :more beer:

I’ve been eating/drinking it for 3-4 years now, but yes it is quite a popular thing. I’m glad for that, I had to order coconut oil online when I started, no shop except Booths carried it and it was pricey. Now you can buy it just about anywhere.

I like coconut water too, it has a slightly salty taste but it’s very refreshing. I only use the milk for curries.

I use the oil as a moisturiser too. It’s lovely.

No, can't say it has an aftertaste, it just doesn't taste like sugar, it's 3 times as sweet and just doesn't taste quite right for me....unless you are a total sugar nut and love it very sweet, I'd stay away from it.

OMG, that reminds me of my childhood. My Mum had a cleaning lady from Slovenia, she used to fry a slice of bread in butter and then press it into sugar...it was delicious :gigglesnshit: She said this was all she could afford to give to her children or grandchildren as a treat when they were little...but wow, it tasted so good!!!
