This aromatic curry has just the perfect balance of spicy, sweet and savory. It´s quite simple to make thanks to ¨Thai Kitchen´s¨ flavorful green curry paste. Instead of using the traditional canned coconut milk that most recipes use, we have simmered this curry in fresh coconut made with the NutraMilk. Its lighter than canned coconut so you obtain a curry that has less calories,  but still has a lot of flavor and all the healthy nutrients from coconut.
