The energy and nourishment needed for a productive day starts at the breakfast table; so why not start the day off right with the many benefits of coconut? Coconut can be eaten in both sweet and savory dishes, taking the place of many of the foods you may already be eating to break the fast.

The forms of coconut are many. Using them individually or in combination with one another can produce health-giving, allergen-friendly versions of some of our favorite breakfast foods.


Yes, coconut can be an integral part of your morning coffee! Coconut oil can be added to hot coffee along with coconut cream concentrate. This creates a rich beverage that will perk you up and keep you going.

Here are a few ways to incorporate even more coconut into your morning meal:
