Ways to enjoy our new HOT CACAO


Coconut whipped cream is a delicious dairy-free and vegan alternative to normal cream and my favourite to add on top of a warm mug of hot cacao.


Can of coconut cream/milk; honey & vanilla extract


  1. The best is to use a cold can of coconut cream/milk. Place your can in the fridge for a few hours or the day before. You want the cream to harden and separate from the coconut water.
  2. Open your can and scoop out the hardened coconut cream with a spoon into your bowl. Pour the coconut water into a separate storage container and use that in a future smoothie recipe.
  3. Using a hand blender, fluff up the coconut cream for 1 minute. Add your honey and vanilla extract and mix for another minute.
  4. Use the coconut whipped cream right away or store in the fridge in a sealed container for up to 1 week.

Tip: You must buy full-fat coconut milk or cream and make sure it’s cold before whipping
