Coconut Whipped Cream

Serves:1cup

Ingredients

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk, 13-ounce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract- I never measure... I like a liberal splash
  • pinch of sea salt

Instructions

  1. Place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator at least 24 hours before making the whipped cream, so it is well chilled
  2. Chill a metal bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes
  3. Take the coconut milk out of the refrigerator and remove the lid
  4. Gently scoop out the coconut fat, placing it in the chilled bowl
  5. Pour the remaining liquid into a glass jar and store in the refrigerator, saving it for another use
  6. Using a hand blender whip the coconut milk fat until light and fluffy, about 1 minute
  7. Whip in the honey, vanilla extract, syrup and salt
  8. Use right away or store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours
