Coconut Jellos ! Finally I made some.

If you have been following With A Blast for a while now, you will know I absolutely love (might even be in love with) Coconut … all shapes, textures, forms.

I posted about Bread, Cheesecake, a Curry dish, and blah blah, but had yet to make jellos. See some great recipe links further down !

These Coconut Jellos are so delicious and refreshing, especially when served with fresh pieces of Pineapple.

I have used “Lite” Coconut Milk in this recipe, trying to cut back the fat in-take a bit.

Hubby suggested full fat next time.. well, of course, he would say that ! He can afford it (rather – his body can). But he did enjoy these, even though the flavor was a little lighter.

All of us are not that fortunate, unfortunately, to enjoy full fat treats all the time !

I added toasted coconut flakes to one half and left the other half plain. You can make them with or without the toasted coconut flakes.

Coconut fat is different that other fats, it will speed up your metabolism and help you lose weight. Coconut oil makes for skinny pigs. ;)

Great recipe, I'll just use the full fat version!
