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!

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 …

"Cheesy" Italian Pizza Buns

These Pizza Buns save my sanity Every. Single. Day.  I make them every 2.5 - 3 weeks, and it keeps me from having to make sandwiches every day for my 3 school aged kids.  Life Saver, I'm tellin' ya.  I've been making them for close to 5 years now, and I'm still going strong, because it really is soooo worth it.  I just store them in the freezer, and pop a few out every morning (or put some in the fridge the night before) as needed.

For a long time I made these pizza buns with regular all purpose flour, which admittedly works great, and results in larger, puffier Pizza Buns...but as I'm trying to steer clear of refined flour these days, I've been making them lately with my own ground whole wheat (I use hard white wheat).


After you've ground your wheat, measure and dump all the dough ingredients into the inner compartment of a bread machine.


Select the dough setting, and press start.  My machine takes about 2 hours to complete the dough cycle, and ends up lo…

Sourdough Pancakes

These whole wheat, sourdough pancakes are pretty legit.  I especially love the tanginess that the natural yeast adds.  This is a great option to incorporate into your breakfast rotation.  We have a Saturday morning pancake tradition at our house, so it's nice to have a few different options to mix things up a bit.  These were a hit, and as a bonus, they're oil-free, sugar-free, nut free (if you use rice milk rather than a nut milk), entirely whole wheat, and plant based....AND...super fast and easy to whip up.


First off, combine your bananas, applesauce, plant milk, dates, natural yeast and vanilla in a high speed blender and mix.  Oops, I forgot to include the vanilla in this picture apparently, but you get the idea.

Whisk together your dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) in a large bowl.


Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and whisk together until well combined.
