    I really love the taste of Coconut Manna. However, it requires melting in the cooler months since it becomes solid. After melting it, I portion tablespoonfuls of Manna into ice-cube trays. When they become solid again I then store them in an air-tight container. Just pop the equivalent amount of Manna cubes I want into hot liquids or microwave for other applications. Also, if you try the recipe Coconut Manna Milk Recipe on the Nutiva website, the milk definitely needs straining otherwise it will be quite grainy. It also has a tendency to separate if stored in refrigerator.

    Coconut Manna is funny stuff! I bought it thinking it might be a peanut-butter type spread replacement and found that it indeed has a very pleasant mildly nutty taste. However it is a 'high maintenance spread'. At room temperature the stuff is SOLID. It MUST be melted by letting the jar stand in hot water or by careful microwaving with the lid off. I say _careful_ microwaving because microwaving too long will brown the coconut manna. So let us say give the stuff a 'short quick jolt' to speed it on its way to melting.

    Another thing that is funny is its 'mouth feel'. The label says 'melt in your mouth'---in fact the opposite is the case. Warm, melted coconut manna begins to 'freeze' in your relatively cold mouth and so it starts to feel a little mealy. But it is still good.

    If the stuff did not require melting I would have given it a 5 because it is indeed nice tasting and nutritionally seems good. I think it would be better in a frosting or incorporated into baked goods like brownies rather than as a spread.
