For a long time, Trader Joe’s only sold light Coconut milk, and not a full fat version. For a Paleo eater who loves fat, this was a bummer.
Imagine my surprise when I spotted this item on an endcap for new products:
Coconut Cream — $1.49 at Trader Joe’s
Ingredients: coconut extracted, sodium carboxy methyl cellulose, xanthan gum, water.
You’ll note it contains some less than natural ingredients, which is a bummer. I probably wouldn’t use it in high rotation, but it would be a yummy addition to occasional treats like ice cream, whipped cream, or even coconut cream pie.
