Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and serve.

The chef here is clear that, for best results, we should use medium shredded coconut (rather than large flakes or finely shredded). Since finding medium flakes at your store may be a challenge, check out the top rated Bob’s Red Mill brand by clicking the image below. I love coconut recipes and this one is the best!
