I just put unsweetened coconut flakes in a food processor to make "coconut butter". To my surprise it tastes REALLY sweet. Does anyone know if it has a high sugar content? Or its gylcemic index?

It does taste sweet, but I think it's the fact that its pretty concentrated, just like dried fruit tastes sweeter than its fresh counterpart.

It tastes great but I get bored of eating it straight. I tried mixing it into ice cream and smoothies but because there's so much fat it always comes out a small chunks of waxy things. How do you all work with this product?
