Highlights
  • Coconut is brimming with health-benefiting properties
  • Many of us just love traditional coconut recipes

Coconut is one of the superfoods that you can add to your daily diet. Summers and monsoon are the ideal seasons to drink coconut water. Just a little sip of coconut water revitalises us, having an unbelievable power to rejuvenate us instantly. The best things about coconut is that you can enjoy it when it is fresh and in the dried form as well, mixed with a plethora of healthy ingredients like nuts and dry fruits. Many of us just love some of the most traditional coconut recipes, especially in down south, where coconut is one of the main ingredients in most of their dishes - from very famous coconut chutney to legendary avial.

The best part of eating coconuts, other than its sweet nutty taste, is that this aromatic nut is highly nutritious and is brimming with health-benefiting properties too. In fact, coconut milk is slowly replacing regular milk in various recipes. Don't be surprised if you see them in your smoothies, lattes and shakes. Moreover, adding coconut to our desserts gives them a healthy twist too. Coconut almond barfi serves as an ideal example. This healthy, gluten-free dessert is a classic sweet-dish, which is not just delicious but also super easy-to-make, and even vegans can have it.

The recipe for coconut almond barfi is shared by famous YouTube Chef Manjula Jain on her channel 'Manjula's Kitchen'. In this recipe, Manjula has used sugar to make this dessert; however, you may replace the processed sugar with coconut sugar or jaggery in order to make it healthier and nutrient-dense.
