Put the Lime in the Coconut

Lime zest cuts through the rich, thick coconut cream for a bright yet milky shaved ice treat. Real coconut cream is widely available at Asian supermarkets.

1 cup real coconut cream
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup rich simple syrup (2:1 sugar to water)
Zest of ½ a lime
Shaved ice

Combine the coconut cream, lime juice, simple syrup and lime zest, stirring well. Overfill a small cup or dish with shaved ice and drizzle generously with the coconut-lime syrup. Serves 8.
