Hello coconut lovers,
We previously discovered what is coconut vinegar (view previous article) and I wanted to give you more tips on how to use it.
Like coconut oil, coconut vinegar is a very versatile product and can also be used in the bathroom as well as the kitchen. Here are 5 daily uses of coconut vinegar:
- To make raw kale salads (such as this one by Deliciously Ella), simply massage your kale with some coconut vinegar: doing so will break down the cellular walls and your kale will become tender!
- To get rid of acne, use as a daily wash on your face: coconut vinegar will balance the pH of your skin. Simply rub a ball of cotton with some coconut vinegar on your face;
- Add 2 tablespoons of coconut vinegar to a glass of water and drink it before meals to improve digestion;
- To help reduce gassy elements and keep colours of your vegetables when boiling them, add a tablespoon of vinegar to the boiling water;
- Add a tablespoon to the water when boiling pasta to prevent them from being sticky.

Coconut sugar can be used as a sugar substitute for hot or cold beverages like coffee, tea. Like the ordinary sweetener: white and brown sugar, honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar make a perfect alternative.
Coconut sugar can also be mixed in juices, smoothies for delicious beverage or in oats to make the breakfast more tasty and to bake fabulous desserts. You can also spread the coconut syrup on bread and toast or drizzle on pancakes.
