So the recipe from two days ago was for Coconut Whipped Cream (Yum!). But if you’ve tried the recipe, you know that you end up with 2 half cans of coconut milk left over. So what do you do with this milk?
No, you don’t pour it down the drain. Please don’t do that.
That wonderful white liquid is so healthy for you, and you won’t believe the flavor it can give a smoothie!
And since I’m on this “Green Smoothie” kick lately (yes, it DOES actually taste really, really yummy), I just had to make one with coconut milk.
Oh my. I must say it’s something close to heaven on earth. Y.U.M.
