hey smasty, are you using protein powder in yoru coconut oil still? I thought I read a few days ago you were going to try without...

Just wondering becuase I am alos trying to phase out as much pp as possible and get my protein from food sources, and was wondering what kind of recipes you were using.

I'm just doing
2tbsp coconut oil
2tbsp unsweetened coconut
2tbsp flaxmeal
hazelnut sf syrup

was thinking of making one with some cocoa powder as well...

Coconut Pudding

Wowza! I'll add this to the coconut oil fudge thread too. I made an incredible coconut pudding tonight. It uses a special ingredient from Expert Foods....Their low carb pudding mix (which is a mix of vegetable fibers...making it a high fiber but very smooth pudding).

1 can unsweetened coconut milk
about 1/2 c water
2 T Expert Foods Pudding mix
4 or more packets splenda
1/2 c or more of unsweetened shredded coconut
a little vanilla and coconut extract

Mix it all together with a whisk, stir constantly over heat till very thick, refrigerate.

i have been addicted to this fudge for the past week...make a different batch each day, different flavors, use sf syrup rather than splenda....it has been so fun in experimenting with all the great flavors....also since i do not have any flax seeds and i use the sf syrup in lieu of the splenda, mine is not as firm, so i pour them into a mini-cupcake pan and freeze...

thanks everyone for this thread!!!

I use flax meal for the fiber (5T have 10g). If you get the seeds they may keep longer but you need to grind them up. It is also a good soruce of EFAs, but I take Udo's so I don't need it for that, though you really can't get too much good fat.

Sue, I agree, it's do you want it. Definitely good for LC nutrtion, though I couldn't really eat nuts when I did LC. I was susceptable to stalls from things like that and cheese.

Bleedin' Ell, this stuff is way to yummy to be good for you!!!!!

By the time i was tucking into my second portion yesterday i started to panic. How can something that tastes sooo good, possibly be okay to eat?

and as a supplementary question - how much counts as an overdose????

Yummy stuff, isn't it?

I don't know which recipe you're eating. I don't add any questionable extras to mine (no nuts, etc). You want to be careful not to eat too much of that kind of thing. Everything in mine is a "green" food and I can eat as much as I want. I use 6T PVCO per day, but only 2 go into the candy. I have one serving per day.

You'll know you've overdosed if you have to make a sudden run for the bathroom.

Does any of this candy travel well in a cooler? Have any of you tried taking it to work?

Deb, I used to take mine to work all the time. I just put it in the refrigerator overnight, then threw in my bag in the morning (not in a cooler). I did have a refrigerator at work so would put it back in if I was going to eat it in the afternoon. If I was eating it in the morning I would just leave it out to soften up a bit. I think it should do fine in the cooler if you refrigerate it overnight first.

Deb, here's another portable storage idea because these do get a little messy. I would put mine in those mini paper baking cups and refridgerate. This makes a nice bite size (one or two bites) portion you can easily eat at your desk!

The sticky is at the top of the page on this forum:

Nutrition: Recipe and Meal Ideas

The coconut oil fudge recipes are mixed in with the others. I saw on the Main board several people jumping on the coconut oil bandwagon

Thanks Karsen, I'm 46.

I made some CO bark last night, just coconut oil, cocoa, and sweetner, almonds on top. It is sooooooooooo good, I'm sad I just found the joy of CO now. It's the most awesome snack! I'm excited to make fudge from it!

Yeah, flashback is right! Wow. I wonder how all these people feel about CO now or if they are even still LC? The OP hasn't been seen since 2004 it seems.

I wonder also. I think the last time I read anything about Smatsy was she was doing a raw diet but that was years ago. Good times, good time. Nice group, fond memories

OMG I am in heaven. Just bought my first jar of CO yesterday and made Almond Joy Coconut Bark (6CO, 1 t vanilla, 1.5 T cocoa, 1 T Splenda, 2 T coconut, 1/4 c almonds)...deeelish.

I found this thread when I went looking for a "Nutella-textured" coconut oil treat that I could keep in a jar and simply scoop out a spoonful at a time. If left at room temperature is this fudge recipe "spoonable"?

( and speaking of Nutella I have my eye on some homemade Nutella recipes as well, the key seems to be buying hulled hazelnuts, allowing them to cool overnight after roasting)

3 T of ground flax seeds
2 T of shredded coconut
Chopped pecans
Scoop of PP
2 packets splenda

line an 8x8 pan w/ foil, spread in pan and refrigerate, cut into 8 bars

I know this is an ancient thread... it pre-dates me on LCF, lol! Anyhow, I just made this version yesterday with a few tweaks for ingredients I had in the cupboard. I used Nutiva coconut oil and it came out very coconutty and delicious! I really like the consistency better than the coconut bark I had ben making (probably due to the flax and coconut additions). OK - here is what I did with calorie and carb counts. I would eat 2 pieces a day and I do figure this into my total calorie/carb counts. I do believe it matters in the counts ..

Smasty's Chocolate Pecan Fudge - variation 1

5 T melted C Oil
3 T cocoa powder
3 T of ground flax seeds
2 T of shredded unsweetened coconut (got it at whole foods)
1.5 oz pecans, chopped
Scoop of vanilla whey protein powder (I used Cytosport)
Liquid Splenda (= to 1 cup)

line an 8x8 pan w/ plastic wrap, spread in pan and refrigerate, cut into 6 bars

6 servings; 205 calories; 2.15 net carbs

Next time I will try making them in muffin papers, I think they would be nicer not as thin .. but they do taste amazing!! I was using spectrum co oil but I think the Nutiva is tastier ..

Sounds sort of similar to JE's delicious coconut squares (Beeb and I have made without the powdered milk and other tweaks they are still fabulous!) Have you tried these before? Just wondering if you can compare?
