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?

Is it better to cook with vs oil?
Coconut butter is best thought of as a condiment or a spread like almond butter. You can use it in cooking but not necessarily to cook in. Coconut oil, on the other hand, can be used like any other cooking oil. For ex. I have slathered coconut... (more)

Have you been tested for h. pylori antibodies? Coconut oil can be anti-bacterial and while h. pylori has a bad rap, if it's been there a while it's probably moderating the acid content of the stomach for you. Just a theory though.
