What What Coconut

I love my food processor. ❤

I recently moved and the first box through the door carefully cradled my beloved kitchen appliance. I didn’t have a bed to sleep on or plates to eat off of but at least my priorities were in order 🙂

I’m currently drafting an ode…

From silky vegetable purees and vibrant pesto to cookie dough and dips (ooooh, the dips!), I seriously don’t think I could maneuver a kitchen without it. One of my very favorite things to obliterate by stainless steel dual blade is flaked coconut. It blends down into a creamy, delicious concoction in a snap and its definitely a staple in my pantry. Here is a rather in-depth tutorial:

Step 1: Gather all ingredients…..Did I mention it’s just the one ingredient? I mean I added a little salt but c’mon.

*A little tip on buying flaked coconut: BUY IT IN BULK. Way cheaper.

Step 2: Load ‘er up.

I blitzed down the first container a little before adding the second container. I was able to fit a pound of flaked coconut in this puppy.

Don’t worry, I worked that spatula in ALL the nooks and crannies…


So good.
