Author Notes: As a girl, my dad would buy us whole coconuts frequently. We would all clamor down to the basement and watch him hammer it open as we discussed the size of our coconut pieces. As a big nut lover, my dad would always mix nuts in whenever possible. The chilled coconut meat and almond flavor of these times inspired the creation of this pure and essential recipe. These two flavors work together to bring out the fresh coconut flavor. - AveryM
