Cream of the Coconut
(Adapted from May’s Cacao(nut) Euphoria)
- About 2/3 cup coconut cream**
- Vanilla Stevia drops, to taste (or honey, agave, Stevia packets, sugar; whatever you like. If you don’t use the vanilla stevia drops, be sure to add some vanilla extract to the mix.)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- dash of sea salt
Spoon the coconut cream out of the can and put it into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Store the remaining coconut milk in an airtight container in the refrigerator for other uses. (I like to put it in smoothies and shakes.) Add your salt and sweetener to the bowl (for me, it was about 6 drops of Vanilla Stevia drops. Use whatever sweetener you like and make it as sweet as you want.) and cream it all together with a hand mixer.
**Coconut cream is what you will find at the top of a can of cold, regular coconut milk. Do NOT buy light coconut milk, and it must be cold, so put it in the fridge the day before. Also, the 2/3 cup measurement is loose; just use however much ends up at the top of the can!
