I followed the instructions as closely as possible, but mine didn't turn out. It had a grainy taste (probably from the coconut). I wouldn't try it again. - 21 Jul 2008

I make this as I am lactose intollerant, but it's still very creamy. Make sure you use unsweetened coconut milk. very good! - 21 Jul 2008
