Coconut Volcanos

Coconut VolcanosI’m so very excited about this recipe, that I was anxious to share it with you as soon as possible. I’ve seen this recipe on Dr. Axe’s page and I thought what an awesome idea, could I make this with the flesh left from making coconut milk? Let’s give it a try. And guess, what; it worked! Yey! They are just awesome topped with that chocolate, but even without it they are great. After photographing the macaroons I thought they look like little volcanos so I decided I should name them Coconut Volcanos. My girl loved the idea.

Why do I think this recipe is absolutely amazing and smart? Because I always wondered how I could use that coconut flesh wisely, finding some really great recipes to use it at it’s best. This is probably the best way I’ve found yet. What do you say; does it worth giving it a try? I encourage you to do so. Your kids will be enchanted. Enjoy!
