I always make sure that I have coconut cubes in the freezer, I think they’re the perfect serving size and if not you can always use two or three. If I am making a curry, I use a new tin of coconut milk then I put any left overs in ice cube trays. Every now and again, I’ll open a whole tin to freeze.
I just chuck an ice cube of coconut cream in with my oats or quinoa in the morning for a delicious creamy porridge.
Defrost 1 or 2 cubes and blend up with your favourite combination of fruit, nuts and other smoothie goodness.
