This sounds divine!
My coconut oil is solid and I know you're not supposed to melt it in the microwave..... how would you recommend getting it liquid ready to whip with the lime?
If it's entirely solid I melt it very gently in a saucepan. The other way I've done it before was to place the jar of coconut oil in a glass or mug of hot water - but it was only semi-solid that time.
Thank you! I shall give it a go :)
