It is no accident that bliss is in our name. For us, the word bliss is synonymous with joyful living, healthy choices, and blissful experiences.
Coconut Bliss is made with simple ingredients of the highest integrity and is suitable for people with many different dietary needs and preferences. This is important to us because it is important to our customers.
Recently we were featured in an article in WholeFoods Magazine titled “Treating Your Customers”, about natural desserts. You can read the full article here http://sweetsfromtheearth.com/blog/?p=47. It was a great opportunity to share about our products!
Welcome to the lovely fall season! This is the time of year for harvests, when hard-working farmers bring in the staple crops that are the very foundation of our survival. Yet this foundation has been eroded by industrial farming methods that include pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). With grass roots efforts in mind to help bring about awareness, we are celebrating this October as the third annual, official Non-GMO Month! It’s a chance to help spread the word about what is happening in our food supply, and to showcase efforts underway to require foods with GMO or GE (Genetically Engineered) ingredients to say it on their labels. This November, California citizens will be voting on just such a measure, known as Prop 37.
Every parent wants his or her child to eat a healthy diet. When the food your child eats becomes a matter of their physical health and well being, it is even more important to know what you are feeding them.
Here at Coconut Bliss we pride ourselves on making a healthy treat that meets many different dietary needs. We are expressly aware of families dealing with multiple dietary sensitivities, including celiac’s disease.
Our wonderful Ambassador in the Bay Area, Andrea, recently attended a children’s celiac camp hosted by the Taylor Family Foundation.
Minimizing our ecological impact is an important part of our mission in offering Coconut Bliss. During the past year, the facility where our products are made has put substantial efforts into reducing resource consumption. Their two-step approach has been to capture energy themselves, and reduce the amount of energy required to run some basic elements of the plant, such as lighting. Solar panels were a major focus and were installed across the entire roof of the warehouse, enabling them to employ energy right from the sun.
I love summer! I love the smell of fresh cut grass and charcoal grills, the sound of giggling children, buzzing bees, and lazy afternoons that stretch into evening, spent with friends enjoying all that the season has to offer. Please enjoy this collection of some of our favorite recipes for your next Blissful summer gathering!
Unlike more “traditional” picnic side dishes, this salad is light and fresh without all the mayo!

Conflicting information abounds from the scientific community on what to eat and what to avoid. All the confusion may be adding to a mainstream food movement heading towards foods with fewer industrial, lab-produced additives. Back to where we started, in a sense. It may be a slow movement, but one dear to our hearts here at Coconut Bliss.
June is my third month taking part in the Vegan Food Swap experience. I've had so much fun designing boxes each month. The box I sent out this month was a before-noon-desk-drawer-survial-kit.
This month my swap box came from Cat of The Verdant Life. She may have also included a chocolate bar that did not survive the first night in my house to make it to the reveal photo. Luckily the rest of the box did survive and will make it to the snack bag for my vacation next week.
There is still time to join the fun for July, for more informaiton on how to join click here.
You know that saying, “think globally, act locally”? Nothing illustrates those words more clearly than the 2012 Olympic Trials happening right here, right now in Eugene, Oregon.
Here in the lush Willamette Valley, we place great value on our local community and economy. We thrive on the seemingly limitless creative energy that manifests itself in so many different ways; from the dozens of local craft breweries to our historic Saturday market and an ever-evolving art scene. We are fortunate to call such a dynamic locale home.
THE L.I.B. LOWDOWN
Some people say that good music can elicit a state of bliss. So what happened when our very own Chris Bliss hit the road with a truck full of Coconut Bliss to participate in L.I.B. (Lightening in a Bottle), a “celebration of Art, Music, Performance, Sustainability and Life”? Read on for the highlights of this exceptional festival!
