We’re a big fan of anything coconut, and we know you are too! That’s why we now offer organic dried toasted coconut smiles by the pound. The smiles are more flavourful, larger and crunchier than shredded or flaked coconut. They are also easier to eat because of their larger size. They really make a great snack for those on the go.
More About Toasted Coconut Smiles
To create these crunchy little wonders, fresh coconut is thinly sliced into ‘smiles’ and then lightly toasted. The result is a snack with a unique blend of nutty and milky taste profile and toasted flavours. They make a brilliant snack for kids and the whole family that transports your taste buds to a sunny tropical paradise! We’ve had toasted coconut as an ingredient option for protein bars at U-RAAW! and Macaw! Foods for quite some time, but haven’t offered them as a stand-alone option until now.
Why we Like ‘Smiles’
We are a big fan of the ‘smiles’ for a few reasons:
- They are a great source of healthy fats that are easy for the body to convert to energy
- Their high levels of healthy fats and fibre, they help fill you up
- Since they are larger than dried coconut flakes and shredded coconut, they are much easier to snack on.
- Toasting coconut brings out a truly unique flavor unlike any other dried product we offer
The Benefits of Adding Coconut To your Diet
We won’t go over a full list of the health benefits of coconut (we’ve covered that here), but in a nut shell, the medium chain fatty acids it contains is very unique in that it can be burned as energy by the body very easily. This means that it’s highly unlikely that your body would ever store this energy as body fat. In other words, it’s a great source of calories that your body can actually use!
The lauric acid found in coconut has some very powerful antimicrobial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. Essentially it can help boost your immune system and discourage potentially harmful organisms from doing nasty stuff to your body.
So add a pound of these great little smiles to your next order-we’re confident you’ll be happy you did 🙂
