Source of recipe: I love creamed spinach and was inspired by Bahama Breeze's recipe. I just added and deleted a few things until it became something that my daughter would eat and love.

I put this over pasta as well - great recommendation! I added half a jar of sun-dried tomatoes and a little extra lemon juice. My hard-to-please boyfriend said it was "different" but really good!


Thanks for submitting this recipe, I made it last night and was not disappointed.  Creamed spinach is a new thing for me and I really liked this.  Didn't tweak it save for making it for two with extra coconut milk and adding it to spelt tagliatelli (sp?).  Even the fella liked it! 4 stars! 


I love this recipe! I made it today and it's so awesome. I love coconut! I was very skeptical about this at first but it turned out great! I love the lemon in it. I put 2 tbs. of lemon instead of just 1. Thank you for posting this!!!  ;)b
