Javizy, the coconut cream that I purchase comes in a jar, however, when I bring the jar home from the store it’s usually in a solid form unless it’s the middle of summer, plus, since I keep my house “very” cool at night, by morning it’s a solid block again which cannot be poured from the jar, not because it’s frozen, but because it must be warmed to a creamy consistency. What I do is scrape the amount I wish to enjoy from the top and warm that in a microwave.
By the way, adding cold water will only cause it to harden more, so you’ll need to use very warm water. That is if it’s the same consistency that I use (the description on Wiki sounds the same. It’s delicious mixed with Greek yogurt and a bit of Stevia or Truvia.
