Looking for a snack food that’s wholesome and delicious, but not likely to pack on the pounds? Try these crispy, crunchy delights, made using juicy coconuts grown and picked in Thailand. Dried coconut chips are a much healthier alternative to fatty potato chips, and they also make a great topping or mix for cereals and desserts.
These tasty morsels start out life as wafer-thin shavings of “copra,” the white flesh scooped out of coconut shells. Then, instead of deep-frying them in fats and oils, producers use a unique drying method that retains all the coconut’s natural nutrients without adding any preservatives or cholesterol-boosting trans fats. The only added ingredients are cane sugar and salt, which enhance the coconut’s flavors without turning them into junk food. In fact, a single bag has only 150 calories, and they’re 100% gluten-free.
As for how to eat them? They’re a healthy snack on their own, but they also mix in well with frozen yoghurt, or act as a topper for your ice cream. Alternatively, add them to your cereal, oatmeal or trail mix to make your breakfast that little bit more tropical-fun.
Dried coconut chips are brought to you courtesy of Tang’s Market, who specializes in bringing the authentic flavors of Southeast Asia straight to your kitchen. This means using ingredients that are fresh, natural, and free of additives. Oh, and did we mention tasty?
