I am very excited to announce that my girlfriend Nikki and I just launched a new business, called Nikki’s Coconut Butter! Coconut butter is the same concept as peanut butter or almond butter, except way more delicious!
We came up with the idea for Nikki’s Coconut Butter as we were searching for healthy desserts and treats that we could incorporate into our already healthy lifestyles. We realized that as much as we love treating ourselves to the occasional cheat, most of the desserts we tried didn’t like our bodies as much as we liked them. Cheating usually left us with a stomach ache or feeling completely drained of energy.
We set out to create a healthy treat that tasted just as good as it made us feel. Coconut butter seemed like the perfect medium, and we experimented with different flavor combinations. Every new flavor we created turned out better than the next, and we were amazed that our little experiment was turning out so well!
The results were so good in fact, that we decided we should make a business out of it. We narrowed down our flavors to the six tasty creations you see below, and launched a website!
- Vanilla Cake Batter
- Chocolate Hazelnut Brownie
- Midnight Mocha
- Honey Pecan Pie
- Cashew Crumble
- Macadamia Nut Cookie
While we are still pretty new to the coconut butter business ourselves, we have come up with some pretty good uses for Nikki’s Coconut Butter as of this writing:
– My favorite creation so far is to use Nikki’s Coconut Butter as a filling for homemade dark chocolate Reese’s cups, a recipe we posted a few months back.
– Nikki’s Coconut Butter is a great way to turn a banana or other piece of fruit into an awesome dessert.
– A spoonful of Nikki’s Coconut Butter can turn a boring cup of coffee into a delicious mocha. We’ve posted before about blending butter and coconut oil in your morning coffee to create bulletproof coffee, but this might be even better.
– Like any good dessert, Nikki’s Coconut Butter is great on its own, by the spoonful, straight from the jar.
All of the Nikki’s Coconut Butter creations use organic coconut, coconut oil, and nuts as the principle ingredients. The only sweeteners we use are dates and honey and there is less than a tablespoon per jar. Despite the low levels of sugar, especially compared to most desserts, we don’t recommend this as an everyday treat. Use it as a healthy way to conquer those sugar cravings a few times a week.
If you want to be one of the first to try Nikki’s Coconut Butter, you can purchase your own at the Nikki’s Coconut Butter website. If you purchase 4 or more flavors, we will even ship it to you for free.
I also want to give a special thanks to Tony’s wife, Shannon, for creating the Nikki’s Coconut Butter logo and designing the labels that we use on the jars. She has designed all of the logos and graphics you see on this website, and she is an amazing graphics designer. If any of you need graphics work done, please contact her through her website, the Graphicz Gal.
Sorry for using this blog to shamelessly promote our new business, but I think this is a product that most of you will really enjoy. At the very least, you will be helping me out because right now I am eating them all way too fast!
Thanks in advance to anyone who purchases from nikkiscoconutbutter.com/
