Flip the can of coconut milk upside down, and put in the refrigerator overnight. Open the can (from the bottom) and scoop the coconut cream from the top of the can into the Instant Pot. Feel free to reuse the remaining milk, the rest won’t be used in this recipe.


Put everything except shredded coconut in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Stir regularly until mixture is smooth. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until chilled.
