This strawberry coconut cheesecake salad recipe is like a cross between a no bake strawberry cheesecake and a fruit salad with strawberries and cream. This recipe has fresh ripe and juicy strawberries covered with an easy to make creamy and thick cheesecake cream recipe. The shredded coconut in the recipe adds texture and extra crunch to the simple recipes for salad. To make this dessert recipe a bit healthier you can use coconut whipping cream instead of regular whipped cream; it's easy to make, and you will want to make it again. You'll want to leave cans of coconut milk in the refrigerator just to make this delicious whipped cream alternative in a pinch. Coconut whipped cream is a dairy free option for whipped cream, and it tastes delicious. The steps are so simple. You start by first spooning all of the thick coconut cream that sits on the top of the tin. Then, add the sweetener to keep the whipped topping recipe low carb, or sugar if you don't mind, and beat for a couple of minutes until thick and creamy, it's that easy.

Unsweetened coconut is healthy for you and includes the dietary minerals of manganese, iron, phosphorus and zinc. The white, fleshy part of the coconut seed is known as coconut meat. Coconut meat has high amounts of manganese, copper and potassium. Coconut meat is used fresh or dried in food recipes, especially in desserts like macaroons and confections. Copra is the word used for the dried meat from the coconut. Copra can be processed to produce coconut oil that is used in cooking, in soaps, hair oil, cosmetics, and massage oil. The wood that comes from the trunk of the coconut palm tree was traditionally used to build bridges, huts, houses, and boats in the tropics. The straightness of the wood the strength, and salt resistance made it a reliable building material. The coconut palm tree is grown in over 80 countries. The top 3 coconut producing countries in the world in 2010 were the Philippines, India, and Indonesia. In Malaysia and Thailand, trained pig-tailed macaques are used to harvest the coconuts. These macaques are still used to help train schools for these monkeys in parts of the countries. In the early stages of a coconut growing stage, it contains high levels of water that can be consumed as a refreshing drink. Coconut water is also a popular substitute for sports drinks as it contains good levels of sugars, dietary fiber, proteins, vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals. Coconut milk is not the same as coconut water, as it has a high-fat content of around 17 percent but is low in sugars.
