Earth Balance Organic Coconut Spread

When I was at the Toronto Vegetarian Food Festival this year, one of the samples I got to try was the Earth Balance Organic Coconut Spread. I've seen it in the store before, but I'm not a huge Earth Balance/ Margarine person. The sample I had in Toronto really blew me away! When I got back to Omaha I bought a tub because I was so impressed. 

As you can see, the spread is white as snow. The flavor is obviously heavy on the coconut, which is good as long as you like coconut. It melts in your mouth!

You can use the Coconut Spread for many things, but my personal favorite has been on toast. Eventually I'd like to use it on something sweet. Cornbread, pancakes, banana bread? I think the sweetness plus the coconut flavor would be divine. I makes you wonder what new coconut product will they come up with next?

  2. I had some homemade cinnamon rolls last Christmas that had gotten a little dried out the next day. I sliced and toasted them then spread them with this coconut spread...oh yum!

  3. I saw that yesterday while doing groceries! I don't mind Earth Balance (actually, I like it :) but it's good to know about the coconut spread for baking and stuff. I love everything coconut. I just stocked up on coconut milk...it takes a whole shelf.

  4. It's funny....I'm just kind of "off" spreads like this now--why, I don't know. But this is a respectable, healthy-esque option.

  6. This is really good in frosting...but use some shortening to give it adequate stiffness.
