  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Place the frozen coconut, milk, condensed milk, pinch of salt, and vanilla in the blender. Blend until as smooth as possible. You can serve the cocada as is, without ice, adding additional milk to achieve your preferred texture.
  3. Step 3

    To make a frozen version, add ice and blend until desired texture is reached. (This method works well with more traditional blenders. They can't completely process the coconut. The ice helps to make a more consistent texture). Serve immediately with a dash of powdered cinnamon on top of each glass.
