Not quite a powder as macaroon coconut, and not as chunky as flaked or fancy. Medium desiccated coconut is designed for pastry – it adores being gently folded into genoise batters or meringues. If you’re a bread maker, add a ¼ cup of desiccated coconut to your favorite white bread recipe along with a pinch of cardamom for a tropical treat.
Desiccated coconut is a versatile form of pure coconut, which can be added to wide variety of recipes, both sweet and savoury. Try adding a few tablespoons into a curry sauce or stir through rice.
Coconut is a healthy way to add sweetness to your breakfast bowl. Try combining with dried apricots, raisins or sultanas with oats for a naturally sweet porridge – no need for honey!
