It’s finally Friday and that means it’s time to celebrate with a little treat…a raw, amazing, sweet treat with a perfect consistency that just melts right in your mouth. I just ate one but my mouth is watering again just thinking about it!
I decided to make raw macaroons because this weekend we are welcoming 13 of our Reboot Success Stories to New York City to be filmed for an upcoming commercial. Since they are traveling from all over the country, we thought it would be nice to welcome them with a healthy little treat that’s low in calories, sugar and fat. Just one or two is really all you need! And they’ll be soaking in the benefits of coconut butter.
Coconut butter is one of my absolute favorite things to dip my spoon into. It’s seriously the most delicious, decadent flavor and creamy consistency that makes you think you are breaking all the “healthy” rules. But you aren’t. I love when that happens. When you enjoy coconut butter, you are ingesting so much goodness. Let’s look at some of the benefits:
Okay, fine. I’ll eat a spoonful every day.
A quick note on the difference between coconut butter and coconut oil:
Coconut oil is only the oil that is extracted from the coconut meat.
Coconut butter is the whole meat of the coconut pureed into a creamy butter.
You get the amazing benefits from both.
Now that we know this treat is good on so many levels, here is the recipe, adapted from one of my favorite blogs, Detoxinista:
