Coconut fan??…here is something for you – A quick and easy fix for your cravings. The best thing about it is that it has a long refrigerator shelf life. So, when that sweet craving hits you, you know in which direction to head.
  Coconut powder 4 Cup (64 tbs), dry and shredded
  Sweetened condensed milk 14 Ounce (1 can)
