It is so easy to make, and nutritious to boot! I buy organic canned coconut for this recipe, as it is the only kind that works best when whipping it up.

What you will need:

Directions

Step 1. Put can of coconut in refrigerator overnight to help harden the coconut, and separate it from the liquid
