From the kitchen to the bathroom, coconut oil works little miracles every day.

It's one of the hottest new baking ingredients around, with many people using it to replace cholesterol-laden butter and shortening to make their favorite treats healthier.

But you can do a lot more with coconut oil than just bake. Because it's solid at room temperature but melts easily, coconut oil is super versatile. You can use it as a makeup remover and moisturizer just as easily as you can add it to sea salt dipping chocolate. The possibilities are endless, so if you've just been using coconut oil in your cookies, you're missing out.

In the video below learn how to make an energizing morning smoothie, sear some fresh sea scallops and make no-bake puffed rice cereal bark, all with the help of delicious, nutritious coconut oil.
