As with any recipe, you can adjust ingredients to your own taste. In the edible Hawaiian Islands test kitchen we modified this recipe 8 different times. We also preferred using fresh coconut milk rather than almond or macadamia nut milk due to the fat content. Using powdered turmeric and powdered ginger were also good substitutes, if you can’t access fresh. And it was delicious hot but in the warm Hawaiian weather, iced is even better.
