Is there a difference btwn. coconut cream and coconut butter (the one on Alissa's site)?

Yes, the coconut cream contains more of the actual coconut, whereas the coconut butter is the actual oil. I ordered some of the goji bliss? OH MY WORD! It is so good. I'll eat a spoonful of it periodically for a sweet treat. Good stuff!

Alissa's Coconut Butter:
This coconut butter is made from whole coconut meat, this is a whole food, not just oil.
It is raw and organic.
It contains the nutrition of the whole coconut - oil, dietary fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. It is richer and creamier than coconut oil and has the full coconut taste.
This coconut butter tastes like white chocolate!
It can be eaten right from the jar, mixed into fruit smoothies and used in desserts.
NOTE: Coconut Butter is soft above 80 degrees F and solid at lower temperatures. You can soften the coconut butter by putting the jar inside a bowl of warm water.
When you open a fresh jar of coconut butter you will see a layer of coconut oil (it will look similar to the separated oil you find on the top of a jar of raw almond butter).
Under this thin layer of coconut oil is the butter which is hard and has a completely different flavor than the coconut oil.

“Why I decided to use and promote this coconut oil:
There are many studies out about the benefits of coconut oil. These studies show that using coconut oil can help with a number of ailments such as: thyroid, diabetes, chronic fatigue, heart disease, IBS, improving digestive disorders, lowering cholesterol, boosting energy and losing weight.
So, I thought about putting some coconut oil up on my site here to sell but as soon as I tasted it I knew I couldn’t do that. I tried the brand that was selling the most and then tasted a few more. It tasted rancid to me! I couldn’t believe that anyone would eat this stuff! So over the next year I began to taste even more and more coconut oil and eventually just came to the conclusion that it must be me, that it doesn’t agree with me and it just didn’t seem natural.
Further down the road… I was giving a seminar at a friends store and he asked me if I ever tasted the virgin oil De Coco- Crème. I told him of my experience with coconut oil and he said, “I know, I had the same reaction. It just didn’t feel right to me either, but this one is different’. He took out 8 jars of all different kinds of oil and had me smell them. One of the ones that didn’t smell too bad he had me taste, against my better judgment! One of the most popular brands promoted by one of the ’top’ raw fooders was so rancid it smelled burnt to me!! Then, he had me smell and taste the coco-crème. It was like night and day. He gave me a jar of it and I began using it on my face as my moisturizer everyday. My skin has never been smoother and I was amazed that it didn’t make me break out and never felt greasy! I started using it in my hair and it’s never been so soft and shiny! That bottle lasted me for more then 8 months and even sitting in my upstairs bathroom cabinet it never went rancid or got old.
I started making raw chocolate with the coco-crème and began using it in other recipes as well and I could not believe the difference in taste between this and all the other coconut oils that I’ve tried.
I absolutely love this coconut oil! Once someone tries this they never go back to using the other kinds out there promoted as natural and clean. It is of such high quality.
I would NEVER use any other coconut oil and I think once you try this one, you wont either!” Alissa Cohen

You are so right, VFL. The goji bliss is ever-so-wonderful.
I just received my order, and it is most excellent, eaten right out of the jar.

I haven't figured out a way to eat it other than that.

The product description on Alyssa's site says the Goji Bliss is excellent in smoothies. I think it's far too good eaten on it's own- I wouldn't want to even try it in a smoothie.
Have you ever tried the cacao bliss? (I don't believe Alyssa sells it on her site, though.) It sounds decadent!
Thank you for all the positive support you bring to this website, VFL. I always enjoy reading what you have to say!
