Tip #1: Always keep a can (or two!) of full-fat coconut milk in the back of your refrigerator so you can make this recipe at a moments notice. If you don’t have a can ready, you will need to leave it in the refrigerator – at least- 24 hours so the fat in the coconut milk can harden, but the longer the better. Once you open your can, the top half will be solid (fat) and the bottom half will be liquid (water). You will be using ONLY the solid part for this recipe (save the liquid part to add to a smoothie!).
