Why You’ll Love Organic Coconut Nectar
If you’re trying to cut refined sugars out of your diet, but still need a little sweetness in your life, look no further than Thrive Market Organic Coconut Nectar. Like honey, maple syrup, and agave, it’s a natural substitute for table sugar. Subtly flavored, and just a bit tangy, this sweetener can be used in a multitude of ways, from baking to beverages.
Thrive Market Organic Coconut Nectar is made from the sap of the coconut palm tree. Its low glycemic index value means it has a longer, slower burn-off in your body than its high-glycemic index counterparts, like sucrose, which can spike blood sugar. And because it comes straight from a coconut tree, it’s also Paleo-friendly, raw, and vegan.
We pride ourselves on offering a thoughtfully curated selection of wholesome products, from quality health foods to a range of pure bath and beauty goods, and everything in between. Thrive Market Organic Coconut Nectar, too, fits right into our mission to make healthy living easy and affordable for everyone.
The amazing coconut palm
Coconut palms are known to be one of the most versatile plants on earth. Sometimes referred to as “The Tree of Life”, coconuts have nourished people around the globe for generations, providing coconut meat, coconut water, coconut milk, coconut oil, and coconut nectar—all from the same fruit.
How coconut nectar is made
At the top of the Coco Nucifera palm, a cluster of yellow flowers will start to mature. Once the blossoms are ready, their stems are tapped, and the milky white sap is collected. To prevent the sap from fermenting, it’s heated at a temperature between 105 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit, creating a delicious nectar that is golden in color. Because it’s heated at a relatively low temperature, it’s still considered “raw,” which means it retains its nutritional components while also becoming more concentrated in natural sugars.
A healthier sugar alternative
This naturally sweet syrup is a direct substitute for table sugar, and when you do so, you’ll enjoy a range of positive benefits:
- Contains no additives or preservatives: There are no other ingredients in our coconut nectar except … coconut nectar.
- Contains all nine essential amino acids: These building blocks of protein may help promote healthy bodily functions.
- Nearly neutral pH: This means that the sweetener will have neither an acidic nor alkaline effect on the body when consumed.
- An unrefined whole food: Our coconut nectar is not chemically treated or processed—just heated enough to stop the syrup from fermenting so it retains a natural state.
Cooking with Thrive Market Organic Coconut Nectar
Surprisingly, coconut nectar doesn’t taste like coconut at all—it has a flavor similar to molasses, and can also be described as earthy with a slight tang. The roots of coconut trees are said to draw up nutrients and character from the volcanic soils that they grow in, which adds to the flavor profile of the final product. Because of its subtle taste, it can be used in almost any recipe that calls for a liquid sweetener, or mixed into drinks. Here are a few other ways to use our one-of-a-kind organic coconut nectar:
Starting a Saturday with a short stack of flapjacks might be the best way to kick off your weekend. Using coconut sugar as a syrup on top will complement the coconut flour as you dig into your warm, fluffy pancakes.
Coconut water cuts the intensity of tequila, and a splash of coconut milk creates a velvety smooth texture. The tequila’s agave flavor shines without added sweetene, but you can also use coconut nectar instead of simple syrup to keep it extra “skinny.”
It’s difficult to resist a chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven. Our upgraded version of the classic treat is downright delectable with nutty hazelnut flour and large chunks of chocolate. Use coconut nectar as your sweetener for a little exotic taste.
Because the typical version of this Southern dessert is typically thickened with corn syrup, it's not always the healthiest choice. Here, we've healthified the holiday favorite by swapping in a gluten-free chocolate crust and date filling. To make it even better, use coconut nectar in place of sugar.
Note that you can call on coconut nectar as a 1:1 substitute for anything requiring sugar. Use your imagination to dream up other ways to use this versatile sweetener.
