Coconut pudding

I'm lucky to have coco palms on the ranch. So I always start with fresh coconut in food processor.
Make equal quantity of rice. Then combine in slow cooker with canned condensed sweetened milk and raisins.
Cook all day.
  You could substitute the canned milk for something healthier. Soy or almond milk with honey for example.

We have less access to coconut in the states----  especially in my Midwestern town. Could shredded coconut be used in place ( I know, poor substitute) or what do you recommend?

It freezes well. I make large quantity then freeze. We often eat it for breakfast with papaya.

Sure. Flaked coconuts are fine. Doesn't the supermarket sell fresh coconuts? We have them in the produce section in CA. There a hassle to open though. My guy wields a machete !!

I'm not sure if we have coconuts or not!  I'll have to check.  It's not too common here . ..    I'm afraid I wouldn't know what to do once I got it open.  We don't have a machete . . .  husband would have to use an axe.  ha, could be scary!

You can google it. I think you drive a screwdriver into the coconut eyes.
