Memorial Day is less than a week away—get your grill ready for the big get-together with a test run of a recipe that’s perfect for your vegetarian guests. Thick-sliced eggplant is tossed with a mixture of sweet honey, olive oil and coconut flakes then grilled until tender. Serve it as a side with other BBQ favorites, or make it the main dish for a healthier holiday meal.
Spring is in the air! What better way to celebrate the start of the season than to surprise your family with a fun, healthy treat? These moist and spicy carrot muffins are studded with plump raisins (or dried cranberries—your choice!) then topped with organic shredded coconut to create mini “birds’ nests.” Decorate them with organic jellybeans or use my recipe for raw macaroons to create your own candied “eggs.”
Saturday mornings wouldn’t be the same without pancakes! This weekend, skip the super-sweet syrup and serve these crispy, rich Coconut Corn Cakes with a side of your favorite nut butter. No milk or eggs are needed, and a scoop of protein powder added to the batter makes a delicious and healthy breakfast treat.
One sip and you’ll know: this blue-hued beverage is no ordinary smoothie. Sweet, creamy coconut milk takes the place of typical dairy or non-dairy milk, while fresh ginger adds zing to the mild blueberry flavor. The best part? Not one but three power-packed protein ingredients are blended in, making this gourmet drink as nourishing as it is delicious.
Granola makes a great cereal or healthy grab-and-go snack. Make your own and you can customize flavors and save money! This recipe yields about eight cups, and the cost is less than you’d spend on a package of the premade kind. Read more →
Q: I’ve heard that coconut is great for skin. What are the benefits? Can you recommend some coconut skincare products?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
You heard right! Coconut is wonderful for skin. Women around the world (particularly in tropical regions) have used it for centuries as a natural solution for keeping skin soft, smooth and hydrated. Many swear by its anti-aging effects, said to be from both its intense moisturizing properties and its antioxidant content.
