Gorgeous creamy, caramel toffee flavours. Great in drinks, baking and sprinkled on porridge.
The Product: Coconut products are enjoying a surge in popularity and new ones are hitting the UK shelves all the time. The latest one to come along is coconut sugar. It’s made from the sap or nectar of the flower buds of the coconut palm. It’s health claims are that there’s nearly half the carbohydrates per gram of other sugars making it an appealing alternative sugar.
The Verdict: It’s definitely not as sweet as standard white sugar but what it lacks in extreme sweetness it makes up for in it’s complex flavours. I was pleasantly surprised by the rich, creamy, caramel toffee flavours and also that there is no coconut flavour at all. You use it in exactly the same way as any other sugar and I’ve been enjoying it in chai, smoothies and on porridge. It also made an amazing salted caramel sauce to pour over an apple cake. If you fancy a change from your usual sweetener this is definitely one to try.
