COCONUT CREME..... Where Have You Been All My VEGAN LIFE!?

This week, I discovered the JOY of making a delicious, whipped creme out of coconut milk! I have been making new vegan deserts JUST to use the coconut creme! So, ya.... I guess you could say I am obsessed! Coconut Creme is even tastier than traditional, cow whipped creme and I will never not have a few cans of coconut milk in my fridge!

Chewy Vegan Brownies
  • 1 Flax Egg (1 TB ground flax seeds mixed with 3 TB warm water)
  • 3 Tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Raw Cacao Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Raw Agave
  • 1 Cup Almond Butter 
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Milk 
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Organic Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup Raw, Chopped Pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make the flax egg and set aside. In another bowl, combine coconut flour, raw cacao, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in the raw agave and almond butter. Whisk the flax eggs until they are an even consistency and add the vanilla extract and whisk again until combined. Add the vanilla flax mixture to the rest of the ingredients. Add the almond milk and mix until everything is combined. Pour batter in a greased 6 inch pan and place in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean when removed. Top with COCONUT CREME and Berries, or whatever else you like! ENJOY!

Berry, Coconut Creme Parfaits! 

These delicious parfaits are easy, beautiful and so delicious on all of their simplicity! Make Coconut Creme. Set aside. Mix one cup of berries with 2 Tbl of maple syrup or agave. Start layering the berries with the coconut creme in a glass or jar, or anything else you can see the layers through. There is something so appealing about desserts that you can see layered in a glass! 
Serve and EnJOY!!
