  1. Just curious, if this recipe would work with coconut milk or cream of coconut? We're going dairy-free for the sake of my child. Any thoughts?

  2. I tried this today but the milk looked like it got all chunky and basically all of the liquid disappeared so it wound up with just potato mush that sort of looked burned. Thoughts?
