Coconut fluff is prepared from coconut and other ingredients and another fruit or two as the preference may be and is often one of the better choices for tourists in many tropical and sub-tropical parts of the world. It has become a hot favorite in many home dishes and is usually served as a dessert. It is effortless to make and requires little time or cooking expertise. It is also available at seaside stalls and restaurants and is much sought after by locals and foreigners.
The ingredients that go with the coconut fluff are two cups of cool whip, cream cheese that is essential for softening, and crushed fruit, preferably oranges, pineapples, or any other fruit of your choice. You may then put in a quarter amount of Vanilla or other flavors and obviously half or more cups of well-sweetened coconut flakes. You may also find nuts added to increase the flavor.
Soaring Demand of Coconut Fluff and Cream
Due to soaring demand for coconut fluff and whipped coconut cream, the tree has gotten into the limelight for its huge benefits. It is this factor that there is currently a huge demand for coconut milk and cream made out of the tender and ripe coconut. It is generally cultivated in tropical climates, and therefore countries like Thailand have been promoting its cultivation on a large scale. Coconut is often referred to as a whole large seed of Cocos nucifera species of palm trees. It includes the outer hard green covering and fibrous endocarp.
It is the fleshy part of the seed or endosperm consumed and made into fluff or whipped coconut cream for people to eat and reduce their thirst. All other parts of the coconut tree are useful to humans and hence generally referred to in the past as a tree that satisfies most human beings’ needs.
Currently, Thailand has been at the forefront of the cultivation and promotion of Thai coconuts so that the tree gets better commercial value. It is nowadays extensively found all over the country and even exported as food and as other products.
Wide Range of Coconut Recipes
With the internet extending to all parts of the globe, coconut recipes have become more varied with different ingredients. Just like ice-creams, coconut fluff has now become famous all over the world, especially in Europe and the USA. This has brought in huge demand for the coconut market, and the same is being exported from Thailand.
While coconut water provides a very high nutritious drink in the sun’s sweltering heat, coconut meat is used to prepare fluff. You will also find that the coconut’s saturated fat is very healthy, and the same contains less sugar and more protein. It is also very high in minerals such as iron, zinc, and phosphorus. This makes it very good as an overall drink, and its export potentials in Thailand and other parts of Asia are going to rise further.
Naturally, with coconut fluff becoming cheap and easily available, it will prove beneficial to coconut plantations.
