Coconut oil can be taken orally in many ways, according to SFGate. Some methods include using it for baking or frying, adding it to beverages or eating it by the spoonful.
Coconut oil is a good substitute for other oils in recipes for baked goods, and it is also a good choice for sautéing vegetables, says SFGate. Another idea is to add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil into a bowl of oatmeal to enhance its flavor. Adding coconut oil to one's morning tea or coffee is a quick and simple way to ingest it orally. It is also a good sweetener for cold drinks such as smoothies and iced tea.
