Molasses 1 cup
1 cup sugar

After removing the coconut water, peel and grate the fruit. Then we simmer coconut water, grated coconut, sugar and molasses, and let boil for a few minutes until it becomes slightly thick. Then add milk and vanilla. Simmer it and stir it until it gets to a very thick point. Finally, we remove it from the heat and, with a spoon, small portions are served on a platter until they cool.
