Exotic Touch

• photograph via Coconut Organics Mozambique 

A few weeks ago, I purchased a bag of organic roasted coconut flakes. I have been on a coconut kick lately - not only is it delicious but it also has plenty of health benefits such as revitalizing and anti-cancer properties, along with boosting metabolism - and I couldn't stay away even though I had no idea how to eat them. So the bag remained unopened for a few days until I decided to experiment with them, and so far I have come up with 3 different combinations that I like either as a light breakfast or a midday snack. The roasted flakes add just the right exotic flavour.

  • Mango, kiwi and blueberries fruit platter with coconut flakes
*I generally use cantaloupe instead of blueberries - the flakes stick better to it - but I didn't have any on hand this time.

  • Milk & cereal bowl with coconut flakes 
*My favourite choice of cereal are the Honey Nut Cheerios.

  • Plain yogurt and berries bowl with coconut flakes
*I used a combination of blueberries, raspberries and blackberries here.
