    Recipe Notes

    *Cream of coconut is NOT coconut cream. It is sweetened coconut cream that is often used in mixed drinks but does not contain alcohol. You can find it with the mixers at your local grocery store. It is a very common ingredient so if you can’t find it then be sure to ask for some help.
