Reviews for Thrive Market Organic Coconut Sugar

Why You’ll Love Organic Coconut Sugar

With a taste much like brown sugar, organic coconut sugar is the perfect sweetener for the health-conscious foodie who still has a sweet tooth. Coconut sugar is derived from the sap of the coconut palm. The sap is boiled until the water evaporates from it and what’s left is nothing but crumbly sweet sugar. Of course, our coconut sugar is organic, ethically sourced, and non-GMO. This makes a great replacement for cane sugar, especially because coconut sugar offers nutrients that you won’t find in the empty calories of white sugar. Now that’s a sweet deal.

Coconut sugar as a healthy alternative

Lower glycemic index

Refined white sugar has a high glycemic index and when used in excess, it can cause the body to stop using it as fuel and instead store it as fat. It’s easy to eat too much refined white sugar, as it’s addictive in nature, but too much of it can lead to some health problems. So, if you’re craving something sweet, it’s best to go with a healthier sugar alternative that’s less processed, like coconut sugar, or sometimes called coconut palm sugar.

Coconut sugar contains inulin

Inulin is a dietary fiber that supports the good bacteria (or probiotics) in your gut. Inulin is great for gut health, and coconut sugar is a sweet way to get a little more of it in your diet.

Less fructose

Fructose is a sugar that your body turns into fat very quickly, so it’s best to keep these levels in your diet fairly low. Opting for coconut sugar over higher fructose options is one way to do that. For comparison, coconut sugar is 45 percent fructose, agave nectar has 90 percent fructose, and high fructose corn syrup had 55 percent fructose.

Recipes

When your sweet tooth is demanding something yummy but you don’t want to load up on white sugar, coconut sugar offers a healthier alternative without sacrificing sweetness. These recipes are just a few mouth-watering examples of sweet treats that feature coconut sugar. Go ahead, give one a try:

Caramelized Banana Toast

Pair the crunch of toast with the smooth and rich flavor of caramel and banana. To make this delectable treat you will need bread, almond butter, hazelnuts, chia seeds, coconut chips, coconut oil, coconut sugar, and three bananas.

Add coconut sugar to the coconut oil that has been heated in the skillet. Once the sugar dissolves and starts to bubble, you will slowly add in water and stir until the mixture is a smooth consistency. Next you’ll want to add in the bananas, spoon caramel over them, let them cook for a couple minutes, and you have your caramelized bananas.

Spread some almond butter on your toast and then top with your caramel creation. For the last touch, sprinkle it with chopped hazelnuts, chia seeds, and coconut chips for extra texture and nutty flavor.

Paleo Chocolate Lava Cake

If you’re looking for a lava cake that fits in with your Paleo diet, this chocolate lava cake is just for you. For this recipe combine maple syrup, coconut oil, and cacao powder in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 2 minutes.

Take off heat and set aside to cool slightly.

Combine egg yolks and 3/4 cup coconut sugar in a large bowl and whisk until the mixture is thick, fluffy, and pale in color. Fold in the cacao mixture, then fold in almond flour.

Place egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and beat on high until soft peaks form. With the mixer running, slowly pour in remaining 1/2 cup coconut sugar and beat until shiny, stiff peaks form. Working in batches, slowly fold the egg white mixture into cacao batter. Transfer mixture to prepared tin and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, then dust with cacao powder.

Slice and serve—the inside of the cake should be fudgy and runny. If you prefer a completely solid cake, cover and refrigerate for an hour after baking to set.

Almond Butter Cookie Cups with Banana Ice Cream

To start, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, and salt in a small bowl. In a large bowl, whisk together egg, vanilla extract, coconut oil, coconut sugar, and almond butter, then stir in flour mixture. Press dough into sides and bottom of prepared muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes until golden. Let cool completely before removing from tray.

For the banana ice cream, place frozen banana slices in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment and process until smooth. The bananas will first appear crumbly, but continue to process until a noticeable change occurs and the mixture becomes thick and creamy.
