Coconut Whipped Cream



This is a great dessert topper, or a side for many breakfast dishes such as crepes, waffles or pancakes.  I like to serve mine on my Sourdough Pancakes.  Don't let the appearance throw you off.  It's not entirely white because it's sweetened with Powdered Coconut Sugar and flavoured with cinnamon, making it slightly more off-white than typical whipped cream, but trust me, it's even more delicious!  If you've never used Powdered Coconut Sugar before, click on the highlighted words for a link to how I make it.

Here's how it's done...


Scoop the coconut cream off the top of one can of full fat coconut milk (which should typically yield approximately 3/4 cup - 1 cup of coconut cream.  I buy Thai Kitchen brand).  Measure out your cinnamon and Powdered Coconut Sugar as well.


Place the coconut cream in a mixing bowl and mix with a hand mixer.  You may find it mixes nice and creamy right from the get-go, but if it's been sitting in the fridge for a while (like mine was in the above photo) you may end up with something kind of lumpy, in which case you'll want to add about one tablespoon of plant based milk to cream it up a bit.



Next add in the Powdered Coconut Sugar & cinnamon and mix again.  

Voila!  It's done!  Easy peasy.  

Now go put it on something delicious and savour every bite.  I'll be here, so happy for you, and waiting for you to tell me how delicious it was!

Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Waffles

Well, these are kind of my faves.  My family goes crazy for them, and they are requested multiple times per week.  It's awesome too, because they are so darn healthy that I don't mind accommodating the requests at all.  We eat them for breakfast, lunch and supper...often.  The amount of sweet potato I use varies greatly, depending on the size of sweet potato I'm using, or what I happen to have on hand.  I've used anywhere from 2-5 cups of sweet potatoes (cooked) and always get awesome results.  I started out using 1/2 a large sweet potato per batch, but lately I use the whole thing and they turn out the same as far as cooking time and consistency, I just get the satisfaction of knowing I'm packing more nutrients into each waffle and the batter ends up stretching farther and tasting a little more sweet and flavourful.  BONUS!
So here's how it's done... Combine sweet potato, apple sauce, plant based milk & honey in a high speed blender.

Coconut-Cashew Tiger Ice Cream

Hope you all are enjoying your summer as much as I am!

I have been DYING to write this post for a while now!  I am absolutely loving this ice cream recipe, and I know that it'll be a hit at your house too.  I have always been a fan of Tiger ice cream, and when we went plant based and dairy-free, I wasn't about to accept the fact that I might never taste it again. 

I have been experimenting for a while now, doing a load of researching and looking for natural food dyes and gut health helpers, as well as ratios of flavours etc.  After lots of experimenting, the results are better than I would have expected!  The black liquorice ice cream is coloured with food grade, activated charcoal, which is great for gut health, and the orange ice cream is coloured with both sweet potato and a bit of turmeric to add not just colour, but also anti-inflammatory benefits and a little extra hidden goodness!  I can now honestly say, this one is a gooder!  I will even be bold enough to tell you tha…

Chocolate Almond Truffles

If you're looking for a rich, creamy, decadent dessert, that is also quick, easy, and only has 5 ingredients (all of which you'll likely have on hand right now), please allow me to be your new best friend.  These truffles are vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, and have a rich dark chocolate taste that you can indulge in guilt-free.  Although the title says they're almond flavoured, you really can make these truffles whatever flavour you'd like.  I've done peppermint, vanilla, orange...whatever suits your fancy / craving.  I've also rolled them in crushed nuts instead of coconut, but coconut remains my personal favourite.

So to begin, line a small bread board or baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Toast your coconut over medium heat until lightly browned and aromatic (around 5 mins), stirring frequently.


Transfer the coconut to a small plate to cool as you mix together your truffle ingredients.
Next, combine the cocoa powder, full fat coconut …
