    I didn't put it back in the fridge. I kept it in the mason jar and took it with me and shook it now and then. Once all the liquid had been absorbed I added more coconut milk and used the back of a spoon to separate any clumps. I have half of it left for tomorrow..I put a tiny bit of honey and vanilla in. Yum.

      No flavor, tiny crunch. The texture didn't bother me at all...the visual is something else. Not terrible but very different.

      Your coconut creme brulee sounds killer!

        its literally just coconut milk and egg yolks and vanilla. so sub the coconut milk for the cream in a creme brulee recipe and ditch the sugar altogether. the key is to chill it right down before you eat it but then that goes for the real creme brulee as well. i eat is as is but you could also eat it with fruit like berries. my feeling too is if you melted in an amount of 85% chocolate it would prob be pretty special. maybe for xmas lol

        hopefully i dont get distracted and remeber to get some chia seeds tomorrow.

          I've copied this to my Paleo food doc for later. I'll give this a try, Thanks.

            You are probably right -- if you eat it within a day or two it probably would not need to be refrigerated. I hadn't thought of that!
