Yesterday I bought unsweetened shredded coconut in the hopes of re-creating the flavor & nutrients of coconut juice without spending $2 per large can. Unfortunately, it didn't add much flavor and it also didn't blend very well, as it had a weird consistency, even though I blended for 30-40 seconds.
I'm wondering a couple of things:
1. Has anyone used shredded coconut in their smoothies & been really enamoured by it?
2. Has anyone tried to make home made almond milk (recipe available here : search for almond milk) and added shredded coconut to it? I guess I'm trying to recreate the delicious subtle flavor of coconut juice, without the expense ....
Any advice & thoughts appreciated. I've also considered that I didn't give it a real chance because I was hoping for one outcome and I didn't get it right away....
