You can make this spread using just the coconut meat and oil, for a lightly sweet flavor. The addition of 1 teaspoon minced garlic produces a classic garlic butter. Both variations are good as a spread on crackers, flat bread, or corn on the cob. Without the garlic, this can also be used in dessert recipes as a cream.
