Aloha!

My customers would say, “This is the best coconut syrup we have ever had. You should package it.” It took two years to perfect it. Simply add the package of dry mix to 1 ½ cups of boiling water. It’s so simple! Anyone can do it! It’s all natural and tastes exactly like the homemade coconut syrup I served at Oki Diner for 14 years. This exciting dry mix also makes the most delicious Hawaiian desserts like Haupia (pudding squares which is the favorite dessert at all Hawaiian parties), coconut tapioca pudding (make it scrumptious by adding fruits), pina colada, smoothies, coconut sundaes, rice pudding. Use it for anything and everything that requires a coconut flavor. Add excitement to your parties and get-togethers! Share this tasty gift of Aloha with friends and family. They will love you for it. Enjoy!
