In a recent visit to Bondi Junction I realised this is the suburb I should be living in. Aside from awesome places to eat (a review coming soon), there are a few great health food shops. One of my purchases that day was a box of Spiral Foods organic coconut paste sachets.
The package reads “coconut paste can be used in soups, casseroles, curries, sauces, stir-frys, ice-cream and desserts to add a creamy texture and a great coconut flavour”. I have used it to make dairy-free “ice cream” (try this amazing recipe) but I view it more as a portable snack. It’s essentially the same product as the creamed coconut I reviewed a while ago, but in sachets. As you can see in the photo, the oil separates at the top. While you can heat it with your hands to mix it up, I prefer eating it as cold as possible for a bit of a crunch.
