Spotted: Coconut Cream at Trader Joe’s

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.

    I’m from Canada and I just purchased this at a recent trip to Trader Joe’s. I’m relatively new to the Paleo diet just short of three months into it. I am looking for a reciepe to use this coconut cream as I’ve never purchased before. I was thinking it was like coconut milk but sounds a bit richer than the milk.
