thingsthatwedo.com - pc matcha green tea cheesecake

Have you ever seen this product on the shelf before? Matcha green tea cheesecake?

Huh? What?

This came to me courtesy of my adorable neighbour who regularly shares goodies with me. One time she made this delectable kale and quinoa salad – I ate the entire bowl for breakfast, no joke! I totally have to try and make some one day.

Anyhoo, I get a text from one fine evening and she shares this PC Matcha Green Tea cheesecake with me. Curious, I decided to take a slice. A closer look at the box told me this cheesecake also came with a coconut and cookie crumb crust. I like coconut so I was really hoping this would be a tasty treat. - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - earths choice organic coconut cream

Right next to my family’s love of lemons is our love of coconut. There is just something so incredibly magical about coconut. The hubby and I love coconut. The big kid likes coconut too but probably not as much as we do. I mean, what’s not to love? Coconut is fragrant, velvety, and oh so rich.

I’d been looking for canned coconut cream to make coconut rice but hadn’t ventured back into the canned world until the hubby picked up this can of Earth’s Choice organic coconut cream.

Why?

thingsthatwedo.com - pacifica natural minerals mysterical supernatural eye shadow palette

For the longest time, I’ve been trying to go more natural with my makeup. Given that I’m prone to looking like a raccoon, it’s somewhat inevitable that I wear makeup to go to work lest I scare my colleagues senseless. My makeup used to come from a wide variety of brands usually based on price and colour. As I get older, I realized I wanted something more out of the makeup I put on my face. I wanted more natural products with ingredients that didn’t feed into my paranoid thinking.

I recently went to my local health food store and found Pacifica Natural Minerals Mystical Supernatural Eye Shadow Palette on sale for less than $15. It was a decent price especially when you consider that many big box store brands have similar prices.

Let’s just say it was my lucky day!

thingsthatwedo.com - blue monkey coconut water

The hubby is quite the crafty one when it comes to the kitchen. He’s a pretty mean cook which is fantastic since we both can bounce food ideas off one another. Occasionally, he brings home novelty items that he wants to try out.

Most recently: this can of Blue Monkey Coconut Water. It was on sale at the grocery store so he decided to buy one to test it out.

Now, I have to be honest, I was a little apprehensive about it. I wasn’t exactly happy with the last coconut water I tested a while back. Granted, it was from a different company but still….

thingsthatwedo.com - zico premium coconut water with natural chocolate flavour

Regular readers will know I love almost all things coconut so how could I resist when a friend gave me a bottle of ZICO Chocolate coconut water to try? I mean, sure, I’m not a chocolate fan, but hey, it’s got coconut water in it and it’s got coconut cream (that’s what the ingredient list says and I love coconut cream). A pal of mine insisted that I try it. She loves it, her kids love it, and she MADE me try it.

Yes, I tried ZICO Chocolate coconut water. About that…. - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - astro original natural yogurt

I could end this review with those words and I’d be happy. I haven’t posted about yogurt in a very long time because quite frankly, dairy doesn’t seem to be agreeing with our family lately. We love dairy but dairy doesn’t always love us. Yet there I was at the grocery store and I just couldn’t leave this carton of Astro Original Natural Yogourt there. Individual containers with all the flavours that would make my palette sing, Vanilla Cream, Lemon Meringue, Key Lime, Coconut Cream, how could I NOT take it home with me? - Continue Reading

It may be the beginning of September but the weather is still warm so I’m still eating ice cream or correction, I’m still testing ice cream especially when it’s on sale for less than $4. Have you ever seen the PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream? I have but I would never ever pay regular price for it. Just recently, it went on sale so I decided it was worthy of a taste test.

Now, our whole family likes coconut so it’ll be interesting to see if this PC Black Label Toasted Coconut ice cream holds up to our spoiled taste buds. - Continue Reading

thingsthatwedo.com - artisana organic coconut butterCopyright© 2014 ThingsThatWeDo.com. All Rights Reserved.

Coconut, you either love it or you hate it. Our family: we love coconut. In the past, I’d get coconut milk in a can to add to our curries and other yummy dishes. With the whole BPA thing floating around, we’ve eliminated canned goods from our home.

Translation: no more yummy canned coconut milk. Sure, I know it’s possible that not all canned coconut is lined with BPA but why take the chance especially when I have OTHER options?

Enter Artisana organic coconut butter. Back in May 2011 when ThingsThatWeDo.com first started doing product reviews, I featured a similar product by Nutiva. Since then, I haven’t really seen it in my local health food store. Why did I pick up the Artisana organic coconut butter? To be frank, it was the only coconut butter they had! Everything else in a glass jar was coconut oil which wasn’t what I was looking for.

The good news: Artisana organic coconut butter did not disappoint! - Continue Reading
