Recipe Notes

* To get coconut cream: Place a full-fat can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight. When you open the can, the milk will have separated. Use the thick cream in this recipe. I actually keep my apartment really cool, so I don't need to refrigerate my coconut milk. Except in the summer months, because I don't have air conditioner!
