This is delicious - need I say! I doubled the recipe and added 1/4 tsp cayene pepper - in place of ginger (next batch I'll use ginger). I also added lime juice and zest (organic). I almost always try to stay with organic young thai coconut - in mother nature's carton ;) This recipe is a great base that allows for many variations on greens and spices. Thank you!.
