Substitution for coconut
A lot of recipes I have come across call for the meat of a coconut or dried coconut or coconut oil. I do not like the flavor of coconut and am wondering if any one has a good substitute for it. And is coconut oil something that wouldn't be noticed in the flavor of meals, desserts, etc?
Maybe avocado would suffice for these recipes?
I haven't done this, but I wonder if grated, dried jicama would work. It's nice and sweet and would look the same.
