Instructions
  1. Add the coconut concentrate, warm water, lime juice, honey, and sea salt to a blender and blend until fully mixed.
  2. Set aside at room temperature until using (mixture will thicken as it cools).
Notes
Coconut concentrate is also known as coconut butter, coconut manna, or coconut cream. It is usually sold in a glass jar and is solid at room temperature. It is not the top of a can of coconut milk!

    This is the first AIP recipe I’ve ever made and I’m obsessed! I wasn’t expecting it to taste this incredible!!

  • Catherine says

    These turned out really good! Except I think I added too much salt to the lime-coconut cream as it didn’t taste right. I’ll try making it on its own again sometime.

    I’ve downloaded the AIP 2 Wk Meal Plan and the Paleo AIP Quick Start. Then I found this recipe. What are AIP bacon and bacon guac? Where do you find it? I’m sure I’ll have other questions, but bacon surprised me.
    Thanks!

      Hi Katherine! There are many brands of AIP compliant bacon, especially at specialty grocers. Just make sure there are no gluten or nightshade ingredients. The recipe for bacon guac is above in the recipe. Good luck!
