Bonus Batch: Loco for Coconut

Luisa: As our listeners may know, my dad loves coconut, and over the years I have learned to love it too. It wasn't always this way. I remember as a child being very put off by the texture of coconut flakes, and I know this is something many people dislike about coconut in general. I remember watching my dad eat coconut flakes out of the bag and gagging. I think it was probably around high school that my coconut appreciation blossomed. I remember having besitos de coco (coconut macaroons) for the first time when I was 15 and immediately wanting to recreate them. When we went to Puerto Rico that same year to visit family my dad gave my brother and I some cash and sent us down the road from my tia's house to a neighbor to buy limber de coco (coconut ice), and it was so delicious that we recreated them back at home countless times that summer. Our listeners will also know that I've been eating dairy free for a while now, and I am so appreciative of how well coconut can be used as a dairy substitute, from coconut cream in cakes to coconut whipped topping. My awe for coconut just keeps growing!
