    A little bowl of breakfast happiness

    Not that there is anything wrong with bacon, eggs, and veggies, but today I wanted something different. So....

    about 1/4 cup dried unsweetened coconut
    same volume of coconut milk, mixed and allow to stand until it thickens to oatmeal consistency.

    Topped with 1/2 avacado and diced strawberries.

    Yum!!!!

    You had me till the avocado. But the cerealishness sounds deeee-lite.

    Thanks for the idea!

    Did you buy the coconut whole and cut it up or have you managed to find pre-cut unsweetened coconut that you can buy in the store/online?

    Every store in my area, including Trader Joes, only has sweetened coconut.

    Amazon has a number of different brands of unsweetened coconut

    There is a regional organic store (Mrs. Greens) that has dehydrated unsweetened organic coconut.

    I know, the avacado initially sounds weird, but it was really good! Kind of like a tropical fruit salad, with little bites of smooth creaminess from the avacado.

    Next time I will try mango and avacado. Now THAT would be good!

    I am able to find unsweetened chipped coconut at my Good Earth store. Try looking somewhere like that?

    And, yeah, you lost me at avocado. Blech. Strawberries though, MMMM! Sunflower Market has them 88c a carton right now. SCORE!

    I ordered Bob's Red Mill brand coconut from Amazon. I sprinkled a bunch on my butternut squash last night - Mmmmmmm!

    Awesome. Thanks for all the options. I will check them out. I had just thought it would be easier to get unsweetened, pre-shredded coconut. Apparently, CW only eats the sweetened kind.

    Unsweetened shredded coconut is easily available in grocery stores here. I am surprised it's hard to find in the US.
