Living in LA, I spend about 90% of my day stuck in traffic. Ok--maybe not 90%...but I spend a LOT of time trapped in my car. I’m always on the go driving to events, meetings, taking the kiddos around, auditions, and demoing my products. It’s hard to plan ahead and pack snacks all of the time with such a hectic schedule. That’s where Philosophie Coconut Butter comes in--I wasn’t joking when I said that it saves lives.
Coconut butter is the PERFECT food. It has all of the benefits of coconut oil+all of the nutrients and fiber of the pureed coconut meat itself. Coconut butter contains healthy fats that keep you full, energized, and focused. Healthy fats boost metabolism and good fats, which in turn flush out bad fats. Healthy fats also help with brain functioning. If you ever try and have a convo with someone on a low fat diet, they can sound slow or off for this reason. The medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) in coconut products are absorbed directly from the digestive tract into the bloodstream, metabolizing more quickly than other oils and fats. Instead of being stored as fat, they are instantly used as fuel. Philosophie Coconut Butters take it to the next level because each jar contains 2 cups of superfoods.
Like coconut oil, coconut butter is solid at room temperature. I store a stock of these jars in my car, and in the heat they get all melty and delicious. This is my absolute favorite way to eat Philosophie Coconut Butter. At peak hangry-ness in the car, I just eat this stuff by the spoonful (and try not to eat the entire jar!). You can also spread it on toast, stir it in oatmeal (Kai’s favorite!), use it as an ingredient in baked goods, make treats like our raw Cacao Magic Superfood Bark, blend it in smoothies, or sprinkle it as a smoothie bowl topping, but I just love it eaten by the spoonful! This stuff seriously tastes like frosting!
We have three flavors of coconut butters (made from Berry Bliss, Cacao Magic, and Green Dream). Right now I’m totally obsessed with our green variety. The somewhat earthy flavor balances nicely with the sweetness of the coconut. If you’re new to superfoods, the cacao flavor is super decadent. The berry is always a safe bet. But if you’re feeling adventurous (and can get down with the color), go for the green!
