Ever read the ingredients on the back of non-dairy creamers? “Corn syrup solids, vegetable oil, sodium caseinate, dipotassium phosphate, mono- and diglycerides, sodium aluminosilicate, artificial flavor, annatto color”.
Unfortunately, I have been taking my coffee with sodium aluminosilicate since I was a teenager, and had never found an acceptable substitute. Milk didn’t taste right, half-and-half and even cream did not taste right. Nothing would do but sodium aluminosilicate.
EnerFood Coconut Milk Powder is a great substitute for (the powdered chemicals known as) coffee creamers. I dubiously accepted a cup of coffee with coconut milk powder one morning at Liberty Market, and I was hooked.
You can use EnerFood Coconut Milk Powder in ethnic Indian and Thai recipes, too. It can be mixed with cocoa for extra creaminess and flavor, or mix one or two tablespoons into a cup of hot water, a smoothie, or your favorite recipe to enjoy coconut milk’s health and nutrition benefits.
EnerFood Coconut Milk Powder is just that – pure coconut milk powder with no fillers. Organic and vegetarian, prepared and processed here in the USA, the powder provides complete nutrition from organic, whole foods and contains 65% pure coconut oil.
Coconut oil itself is burned as energy, not stored as fat, which increases the body’s metabolism. Individuals with complaints of low energy levels have anecdotally reported an increase in energy with regular use of the oil. Coconut oil has anti-microbial properties, anti-fungal properties and powerful immune-boosting properties.
A biochemistry lesson:
Most of our commonly used oils are made from seeds (soybeans, canola (rapeseeds), almonds, sesame seeds, safflower seeds, sunflower seeds, etc). These seed oils are largely made up of triglycerides containing long chain fatty acids.
Coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids which do not travel in the blood stream and have never been shown to contribute to heart disease (provided the oil has not been hydrogenated). Coconut oil contains Omega 3 Fatty Acids and can actually LOWER the risk of atherosclerosis. People without gall bladders or those with digestive issue or who cannot digest fats (such as people with cystic fibrosis) will thrive on coconut oil. The medium chain fatty acids along with other minerals contained in this oil also promote good brain function.
EnerFood Coconut Milk Powder adds a very delicate coconut flavor and a creamy texture to any coffee or cocoa beverage and even tea! Yes! Half-asleep one morning, I heated up a cup of peppermint tea and inadvertently added EnerFood coconut milk powder and it was good!
Liberty Market carries non-GMO EnerFood Coconut Milk Powder in 14 ounce containers. Stop by Liberty Market at the northwest corner of Woodman and Patterson on Saturdays between 9-4 p.m. or Mondays through Thursdays between 5-8 p.m.
