Cocavo - Coriander, Lime and Ginger product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsA combination of unrefined extra virgin coconut oil and extra virgin avocado oil, Cocavo has less saturated fat than regular coconut oil. In addition to being high in lauric acid, Cocavo also offers the added health benefits of avocado oil which includes high levels of mono-unsaturated fat, vitamin E and plant sterols. Cocavo has a very high smoke point, which makes it ideal for cooking and enhancing flavors.

Cocavo is carefully infused with cilantro, lime and a hint of ginger, giving you a mouthwatering combination. Cocavo enhances and brings out the flavors in spicy Thai and Indonesian dishes. It is ideal for vegans, vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

I'm someone who enjoys using coriander in my cooking now and then, I like lime and ginger in the right context is fabulous (I'm looking at you L&P dry ginger beer), but I have only had the three combined in a singular meal once before, many many years ago and none since because back when I tried it I found the combination tasted horribly, but tastes change over the years and I was glad to give this a go. As with their products, what's listed on the label is what you get, nothing hidden, this oil is a mix of avocado, coconut, lime, ginger and coriander oils and has the lovely pale green colour of the avocado.

Opening it up I have it a sniff and I have to say that I didn't like the smell of it at all, something about it was just a little off and made me feel a little nauseous, so I popped it back on the shelf and came back to it after a few days. A little goes a long way, so this pot of 400 grams could last you a good while (3 months from opening before you'd need to chuck it). I used this to cook some falafel patties in and found that it didn't really add anything to the taste that had me thinking I simply had to use it again. I also used this in a simple stir fry rice and in a noodle stir fry but in both situations I wasn't really liking the effect this had on it.

I've struggle with enjoying this one and I shan't be buying this.

I am a big fan of cooking with coconut oil in my everyday cooking and also in my baking. I really liked the idea of a flavoured oil especially one that claims to have less saturated fat than normal coconut oil. This Cocavo product is made from extra virgin coconut oil and extra virgin avocado oil with coriander, ginger and lime oil added. The container is 400 grams with 28 servings in it. My container has a best before date more than two years away but once this product is open it should be consumed within three months.

In hindsight I wished I had gone for a different flavour (or even no flavour) as a coriander, lime and ginger flavour automatically limits its uses to cooking rather than baking. I decided that this would be good in stir fries and curries so firstly tried it with stir fried vegetables. This was not a success. I ate the vegetables not enjoying them at all and then felt quite sick all night. The after taste I think maybe of the avocado more than the coconut but I can't be sure did not sit well with me at all. It took me a good week or more to summon up the will to try this again. This time I stir fried some rice and vegetables together with the same out come. With only five ingredients I am not sure what it is that doesn't sit with me but this really had me feeling most unwell.

I think to be fair to the product I should probably try an unflavoured one as I can't say for sure if its the combination of the coconut and avocado or if it was the flavouring oils that haven't sat well with me. I do like the idea of this product but unfortunately this flavour was not for me and I won't be trying this again.

I have been known to add too much coriander to my cooking because I like it so much - so when I opened this pot for the first time I expected to be hit by that characteristic aroma. I was disappointed however as there was very little coriander smell at all. But all that changed when I put a small knob into a pan and turned up the heat. All of a sudden, the kitchen was full of the most amazing spicy aromas of coriander and lime: I was instantly extremely hungry and could not wait to add the food to the heating oil!

I was planning to prepare a broccoli and cauliflower bake, something I usually serve with a light cheese sauce. This time I went for a plain white sauce incorporating the Cocavo infused oil instead of butter. I prepared it in exactly the same way, adding flour to the warm oil in the pan and then stirring in plain soy milk until it thickened. The cooking process was easier in fact; there were no lumps to deal with, and there were none of those odd flecks of brown that can creep in when you have the butter and flour mix too hot.

Once it was ready, I tried it before adding it to the vegetables. It tasted delicious but was not quite salty enough even for me - probably because, unlike butter, this oil is salt free - so I added half a teaspoon of Raptor Rubs Vegie Salt Sprinkle; that then balanced out the flavour beautifully. I finished off the dish with a sprinkling of chopped nuts. The result was so delicious that, although I had prepared enough for four people, the two of us finished the lot! No leftovers this time round.

After my success with the sauce, I went on to the Cocavo website to see what other possibilities there might be for using the oil. I was intrigued to find that they recommend stirring some into your coffee to enhance the flavour and make the caffeine fix slower to release. This sounded so bizarre that I just had to try it. I drink my coffee black without sugar (although I have been known to add a shot of rum on a cold evening). Being cautious, I added just a teaspoon of oil - rather less than they recommend on the website - and was suitably surprised. The best way I can think of to describe it is that it is the coffee equivalent of a chai tea latte - spicy and full-flavoured, and very pleasant. I would probably not drink too much at a time because of the richness, but for someone who normally adds full cream milk to their coffee anyway that richness might not be an issue.

I am looking forward to trying out some new ways to trial this product. It has a long shelf life but once opened, the product needs to be used within three months. Somehow, I don't think that will cause any issues.

Product reviews for listing 3133: Lime Curd
Produced by St Andrews Limes

Product image for Lime CurdAn intense lime flavour reminiscent of "Mum's lemon honey".

Mix through natural yoghurt or whipped cream and use dollops with a dessert; a delicious dip for strawberries on a fruit platter; a toast topping or merely eat by sinful spoonfuls.
