Got extra ripe bananas? Make more waffles and freeze the leftovers for a quick and easy future morning. Wrap each pancake individually in plastic wrap for easy defrosting.
Here's how to whip coconut cream. Let a can of coconut milk sit in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours to separate the cream from the water. Open the can carefully and remove the cream part with a spoon. Place in a bowl and whisk with a hand blender for a few minutes. Save the coconut water for use in smoothies!

Grams are a unit of weight measurement where milliliters are a unit of volume measurement. In some cases, they may be equal but not always; it depends on the density of what you're measuring. Just as an example, if you had the same volume of bricks and feathers, the bricks would weigh far more than the feathers.
