Tip #1:  Use your favorite fruit or whatever you have on hand…peaches, blueberries, strawberries, goji berries, pineapples, bananas, etc.

Tip #2:  I’ve made mine with fresh, hot quinoa and served it warm and it was really good.  I’ve also made it with leftover quinoa and it was just as good.

Tip #3:  You can use whatever sweetener you’d like to sweeten it to your preference.  You could even make it low-sugar by using Stevia, or raw coconut crystals.

How To Make Whipped Coconut Cream Topping (Vegan, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo-Friendly, No Refined Sugar)

www.thehealthyfamilyandhome.com The Healthy Family and Home

Ingredients

  • 1 can organic full-fat coconut milk (13.5 ounce, unsweetened)
  • 2 - 4 tablespoons organic unrefined granular sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon organic vanilla bean powder (or organic vanilla extract)

Directions

Step 1 Put a can of full-fat coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight.

When you open the can, there will be a layer of thick cream on the top and coconut water on the bottom.

Scoop out the thick cream and put it in an electric mixer bowl (save the coconut water to make a smoothie).

Add the granular sweetener and vanilla of your choice (Note: vanilla bean powder will give it a slightly darker color and/or black specks. If you prefer a pure white color, omit the vanilla bean powder or use vanilla extract).

Mix on high setting with the "whisk" attachment until it becomes thick.

Use as a topping on fruit, granola, pancakes, desserts, parfaits, etc.

Enjoy!

      Hi Melissa! Thanks so much! I really like this recipe because you can change it up to use whatever fruit you have on hand, or to customize it to what each person likes…which is very important with little ones because everyone always seems to want something different lol :)
