Wednesday, August 17

This morning, I bought several green coconuts at market.  We enjoy both the liquid and the meat, but today we enjoyed a couple of recipes from Naomi's mom using both!

Simple Coconut Custard
4 young coconut meats
1/2-3/4 cup green coconut water
1/2 vanilla bean or 1 tsp. vanilla extract
Blend until creamy.
2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup or to taste
Coconut Fruit Custard
4 young coconut meats
1/2 cup dates
1 cup fresh fruit (bananas, mangoes, berries, etc.)
maple syrup to taste (we don't use any)
Place fruit in blender first to create liquid.  Add the rest of ingredients and blend until creamy.
