Product Description

Eating a healthy diet often requires a few changes to your current dietary habits. Depending on the situation, the easiest change is altering the between-meal snacks. Opting for a healthy alternative to the snack foods you reach for most often is an easy way to improve your personal health and well-being. Unsweetened shredded coconut could be one of the best components of any healthy diet.

Health benefits of shredded coconut

Unsweetened coconut contains a low concentration of carbohydrates, but it still has a large amount of fiber. Since the standard American diet has a low level of fiber, adding dried coconut to your diet as a healthy snack or a baking ingredient will increase the amount of fiber in a diet plan. Since your body needs a certain amount of dietary fiber each day, eating coconut encourages a healthy level of fiber and reduces the complications associated with a low fiber diet.

Dried coconut is also a good source of iron, as well as the immune-boosting mineral zinc.

How to use dried or desiccated coconut

Dried coconut is a healthy option for snacks and part of a meal. Eat a handful of dried coconut between meals to limit hunger or add it to certain food items as an accent to the other flavors. Coconut is also a common and flavorful ingredient in many cuisines, and can be used as breading or as an elegant decoration on cakes and other baked goods.

Eating a healthy diet requires a few changes to your current habits, particularly if you’re trying to reduce certain health risks or improve your current energy levels. Dried coconut has a high amount of fatty acids and fiber, which help reduce hunger and encourage weight loss over time. Order some today from Food to Live!

    I thicken and flavor my hot cereal with this toss it in salads and hot cocoa, and eat a pinch for a quick pick me up. It’s fresh, flavorful and has great texture.

Raw, Vegan Pecan Pie

Serves 8 to 10


For the crust

For the pie filling

  • 1 1/4 cups medjool dates, tightly packed, pitted, and soaked in warm water for at least an hour
  • 1/2 cup plus 3/4 cup raw pecans, divided
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Big pinch sea salt


To make the crust: Place the walnuts and pecans, sea salt, and coconut in a food processor and grind roughly. Add the dates and process until the mixture is thoroughly broken down and sticks together when you squeeze a bit in the palm of your hand. Press mixture evenly onto the bottom and sides of a pie plate (alternately, you can press it into a 9″ springform pan). Drain the dates, reserving the soak liquid. Transfer the dates to a high speed blender or powerful food processor. Add the 1/2 cup pecans, coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and about 1/4 cup of the date-soaking water. Blend until the mixture is totally smooth.Pour the filling into the crust. Smooth the top over with an inverted spatula. Place in the fridge for at least four hours to set. Decorate the top with the 3/4 cup pecans, and continue to chill till ready to serve.
