Pour the contents of 1 can of either of the coconut concoctions
(Coco Lopez) into a bowl and add milk to measure 4 cups. You can
use half milk and half water if you like, as long as you use some
kind of milk. Add enough sugar to make it sweet enough for your
tastes, usually between 2/3 - 1 cup, depending on whether you used
plain coconut milk or coconut milk that is sweetened. Most plain
coconut milk comes in larger cans than the sweetened version which
comes in thinner, taller cans. As in all cooked sweet treats you
should add a bit of salt, about 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon.

Transfer everything to a pot and whisk in 1/2 cup of cornstarch.
Add some lime peel (or lemon if you don't have it), about the size
of a strip taken off from the middle of it going all around the
lime. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens.
This will take from 10-15 minutes. As soon as it's done pour it
into your molds or onto platters, even into individual dishes if
you like. Just make sure that when you finish pouring you dust
each one lightly with ground cinnamon. Chill.
