Yummy and wholesome shreded coconut Written By: Jacinthe
I really like the shreded coconut. I like to add it to just about any recipe. It adds a fiber any dish. These days I prepare gounded chia and lin seeds to which I add the coconut and warm it up in the microwave with a water. To add a little sweetness I use pured dates.
Delicious, crisp, buttery and slightly sweet! Written By: Alexis
Prana coconut is unbelievably delicious (and I am not a coconut lover)! Prana coconut is the only dried coconut I buy. It has a crunchy texture and buttery taste with a hint of sweetness. I eat it on its own, in granola, baking, and instead of rolled oats in a "coconut-oatmeal" with banana and cinnamon. I recommend it to all of my friends and no one goes back. This is definitely worth trying.

Make your own coconut milk! Written By: Jessica
Unsulphured and unsweetened, these coconut shreds are healthy and versatile! I've found other brands produce thick, sticky shreds that get caught in my teeth! Prana's are thin and light so I use this product to make my own coconut milk (only advisable to use this for cold applications), for baking and in raw treats.
