Granola bars, desserts, smoothie bowls
Production & Sourcing
Untoasted Coconut Smiles are crafted by first harvesting mature coconuts and extracting the white, inner flesh. The coconut slices are then carefully shaped into elongated, smile-shaped pieces. Unlike their toasted counterparts, Untoasted Coconut Smiles skip the toasting process, allowing them to retain their natural creamy white color. The lack of toasting preserves the coconut’s moisture, resulting in a soft and chewy texture. The result is a simple and unadulterated coconut product that showcases the natural sweetness and tropical essence of coconut without the influence of toasty notes.
