What to do with leftover coconut milk

I started using coconut milk in my hair the other day and it is luxury at its finest!! Think all those shampoo commercials where the women all but climax over their shampoo session, and come out with full, hydrated, bouncy hair. . . That's me now with a $2 can of coconut milk. But what am I going to do with the left over milk? I only need a quarter cup and 2 Tablespoons of honey and my hair is below my shoulders, seems like a waste to let it spoil in the fridge as it only lasts about a week. I can't bare to part with this little can of heaven, so I found a little solution to my problem.

FREEZE IT!!
I have a silicone mini muffin tray, I took the left over milk and filled each section with coconut milk. I placed the silicone tray on a cookie sheet and put it in the freezer. I left it n for about 6 hours till they were frozen solid.

VOILA!! Little patties of heaven. Hubby keeps suggesting we eat them, which he's probably right, I'm sure they are delicious!!

I pop them out of the silicone tray and put them in a freezer bag for safe keeping.

When I need to condition, I pop a little patty out of my freezer bag, let it defrost, add my honey and I'm ready to go.

A great way to cut down on waste, and to have it on hand when you need it!!

Enjoy,
