I created this recipe to include cultured coconut milk, as it’s an excellent source of probiotics, which help boost the immune system in a way that helps prevent and heal breast cancer. Probiotics are important and we don’t get nearly enough of them. This is a great recipe for anyone who wants to increase their probiotic intake.
