Coconut deliciousness

Hoi! Here I am, happily for one week already in Netherlands. The days have been super full and finally it starts to feel that all the things you have to do in the beginning is done. Got example my self a bike today, yea!! I wanted to write a full post about first impressions and everything so far, but as there has not been time for taking nice photos, today I will share tip for a easy and fast dessert. So stay tuned, a lot  related to Netherlands coming soon!

Sometimes you (well at least I do) get that sudden desire for something sweet. But I personally don`t want to eat a lot candy, or start baking something on those moments, so it is good to have few fast alternatives. And if you can have at least a little healthier alternative, what could be better? So today I want to share on of my new favorites – whipped coconut cream!

METHOD

PLACE the coconut cream (or milk) in the refrigerator for at least two hours

POUR out all liquid there is left – in cream there is usually only little left, in the milk more

OOPS! It is highly important that you make the cream cold as possible and that you pour out all the extra liquid – otherwise whipping will may not work

POUR the cream in to a large bowl

WHIP until the cream start to get whipped cream a like

SEASON with ground vanilla and sugar if you want

WHIP until the texture is thick enough for you

SERVE with fresh berries and ENJOY!

This cream has extremely strong taste of COCONUT as it is made solely from coconut. If you don`t like so strong coconut taste, try to mix this with normal whipped cream.  You can also use any seasonings – both these will cut the taste a little. For me the taste is perfect without anything extra, because when the taste is strong, only a little amount will be enough to satisfy my sweet-teeth. Coconut cream and milk are also quit rich with energy, so a little less is actually good when it comes to this deliciousness.

And you know what? This cream works perfectly also as a topping for cupcakes or any other dessert. So next time you need to have a dairy free topping try this one!
