I have to be honest, I haven’t always liked the idea of a cold soup! But, since living in a hot climate here in Singapore, it has become more appealing, so I gave it a try!
This recipe is so delicious, fulfilling and nutritious and excellent if you suspect a parasite or dis-biosis in the gut. Young coconut meat and milk is very nutritious and healing, and is a natural anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-parasitic! It is also full of fibre and good fats (which feed the brain) and help our body to make hormones!
This dish is wonderful to serve as a starter or as a main course meal!
