Make a cookie recipe. Then macerate sliced strawberries with agave squirt of lemon. Let them sit a short while. Whip up some whipping cream.(I did older coconut and ran it through Champion with the plank--you get this thick cream and then the ground coconut) to the thick cream add a little agave mix with a spoon and dollop on the strawberries. Save a whole strawberry to use it on top. and you'll enjoy this guaranteed!
there are several other recipes; type strawberries in the banana/search and enjoy.

thanks wyjoz! The whipped cream from coconut sounds perfect!! The ones I've made I haven't been that happy with, from cashews, and the worst one had some banana in it. I have to travel 75 miles to get a young coconut, so if it can be made with old coconut that's a bonus, as they have that in my small town. So I will try your recipe in your link, do you think it will work in a cuisinart?

If you do the coconut in quisinart it will be just grated and then you'll probably have to strain it. Never tried it that way. I Love my Champion! You could probably blend all in vita Mix like you would for almond milk and strain.
I fell in love with the texture of champtioned cream with agave. So that's what I'm doing. I got two 'mature' coconuts(hard shell white skin) for just that purpose, getting strawberries this weekend. Also I tried this (my 2nd favorite) whipped cream. You can add 1/2c macs or use pine nuts.
Coconut Frosting.Topping. Rita Romano's?
3 c coconut meat
1 c macademia nuts
3 T coconut oil
1 t vanilla
2 T Agave
coconut water only to
make it spread. This was not so sweet, so you can make it sweeter by adding more agave.

Any tips on getting the meat out of the mature coconuts?? The last time I did it, I swore I'd never do it again it was so hard.

yeah, good question Vanessa, I'd also love tips on that one.
wyjoz, you're making me want a Champion even more now. I have a juicer, but I always see recipes to use it with the blank plate, and it sounds great just for that purpose alone.
Thanks so much for the whipped cream tips, I was getting tired of all the ones I tried and didn't really like.

to open a mature coconut you poke the eyes and drain the liquid. Then with a hard object: a hammer? crack the coconut into small chunks and dig out with a knife, then you grate, blend or quisinart it.
You can do so much with the Champion. I use it to mix/grind all my veggies and seeds for carackers. Ice Crem! (it can be done in quisinart)but I use Champion. Ten u can make nut butters and the coconut cream. And above all we make a beet juice (I call it wine!) so it's a very appreciated appliance here. Vita Mix is another one and then Quisinart. If you have a chance, search for one, many times in a health food store they do have used ones for less.
The coconut cream comes out so silky and smooth and it's so easy, only 2 ingredients.
