TIP OF THE DAY: How To Color Shredded Coconut
It’s easy to tint coconut for Easter cakes/cupcakes or any other holiday, using food coloring.
1. PLACE the shredded or flaked coconut in a large resealable plastic bag.
2. SQUEEZE the food color into the coconut: 5 to 6 drops per 1 cup of coconut.
3. SHAKE until the color is evenly distributed.
4. DRY and store if not using immediately. Spread the coconut in a shallow pan to dry, and store the coconut in an airtight container.
You can use the tinted coconut in other dishes as well, like ice cream, pudding and yogurt.
One if our favorite uses is in a spring or Easter salad.
