Coconut milk is made from the flesh of mature coconuts and is naturally sweet and creamy. It contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial and anticancer properties and can help fortify immune function.
Lakanto is a zero-glycemic, zero-calorie blend of monk fruit and erythritol that makes an excellent sugar substitute for low-carb recipes.
Orange essential oil is made from orange rind and not the flesh. It can be beneficial for those suffering from stomach issues such as excess gas and constipation. Tip: Be sure to only use pure, ORGANIC essential oils in your recipes!
Sticky rice is a short grain variety of rice grown in South East Asia which is different from common white rice. While it also goes by the name “glutinous” rice, this refers to its texture and not that it contains gluten (it doesn’t).
