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.  

In a separate b…

K-Balls

I have this wonderful friend whom I {sadly} rarely see unless she is serving me in some way.  She's a gem, and I love her to bits.  When my health problems came raining in on me just over a year ago, she went out of her way to bring me healthy meals and treats that were in accordance with my new plant based lifestyle.  One of my favourites were these little babies, which she altered a bunch from the original recipe, and which I've altered a bit more since, as I've eliminated a few more things from my diet.  These are enormous, delicious, filling, jam-packed balls of goodness, that we've lovingly named "K-Balls" in our house, after my friend.  They are entirely plant based, nut-free, and could easily be refined sugar-free if you substituted the chocolate chips out for something else.  I use dairy-free chocolate chips to keep the recipe plant based.

So the pictures kind of make these look like they're just regular little protein balls, but just to bring th…

Sourdough Banana Bread

Mmmm...Banana Bread.  Who doesn't love it, am I right?!?  Even my child that absolutely hates bananas, LOVES banana bread.  And this is the kind of banana bread you really can feel good about eating because it's chuck full of healthiness!  Yay!!!!  Plus, if you have a sourdough starter and are into getting that yummy, tangy goodness into your gut, this is another recipe to add to your repertoire.  If you don't have a starter, there's modifications you can follow in my recipe tips.  This recipe is actually modified from my lovely friend Kelsey's Sourdough Banana Bread recipe.  She gave me permission to change a few things to make it conducive to my Whole Foods Plant Based lifestyle, so it is now completely free of refined sugar, oil and animal products.  So here goes...


My kids usually convince me to throw chocolate chips into the banana bread (I actually found some that are both dairy-free and sugar-free, but man are they expensive), but nuts or blueberries are al…
