Nikki’s Coconut Butter: Locally Made Awesome Eats!

Nikki’s Coconut Butter is an amazing new product made locally in Jupiter, FL. I was given the opportunity to try it out for myself and share with you this new tasty delight.

Disclosure of material connection: Nikki’s Coconut Butter provided me with a free sample of their product to review. All opinions expressed here are completely my own.

Coconut is all the rage these days, coconut oil is now widely available in a variety of products for both eating and for topical beauty products. Why is that? Coconut is made up of medium chain fatty acids which are metabolized by the body differently than saturated animal fats. Medium chain fatty acids are not stored as fat, but used readily as energy by the body. This doesn’t mean you can eat unlimited amounts, but it is better for you than saturated fats. Read this article for more reasons to crack open a coconut. It’s also rich and creamy, who doesn’t love that, both for eating and skin care.

Nikki’s Coconut Butter is made with Organic Coconut, Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, Honey, Vanilla, and Salt. A 2 Tablespoon serving is about 200 calories, 19 grams of fat, 43 mg Sodium (very low), 3 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugar, 2 grams of protein. I tried the Vanilla Cake Batter flavor, it’s creamy and quite filling. Delish on just about anything, even plain with a spoon Winking smile

There are 5 total flavors: Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie, Honey Pecan Pie, Macadamia Nut Cookie, Midnight Mocha, and Vanilla Cake Batter (pictured below).

I love the Vanilla Cake Batter, I can’t wait to try them all!!
