The spread will solidify when it gets cold but it is still spreadable.
Coconut Manna is basically pureed coconut butter, made from dried coconut flesh which makes it very creamy and perfect for spreads, sauces and even smoothies.
Tahini has been a trending topic for a long time. It's a creamy paste made of sesame seeds. It's used in hummus and/or middle eastern cuisines.
