My friend made this 5-Minute Vegan Coconut Cream Dessert for us at a ladies gathering, and served sweet, juicy blackberries on top. Most any fruit would be amazing, or even a lighter jelly or jam.

Top with a little more coconut and chopped nuts!

5-Minute Vegan Coconut Cream Dessert HOW TO

How to make vegan coconut dessert

Within 5 minutes, follow the recipe below, and you can have a fantastic dessert ready for your guests.

I refrigerated the coconut cream and whipped it with a hand mixer, then blended in the remaining ingredients. Soooo good. Had to make one minor adjustment: used maple syrup instead of coconut sugar. We loved it without the berries, even.

  1. Open chilled can of coconut cream (not coconut milk); drain off the liquid. It’s okay to leave a little bit of liquid.
  2. Place in a mixing bowl along with the coconut and spices. Use a hand mixer; mix together until smooth. You can whip the ingredients, but only for about 1 minute.
  3. Scoop the coconut cream into small serving bowls. Top with fresh fruit, compote, or your favorite jelly. Or sprinkle with coconut.
  4. You can make ahead and store the dessert in the fridge for up to 1 week. Take a fork to fluff it up for serving, or whisk it again with your mixer for 1-2 minutes.

5-Minute Vegan Coconut Cream Dessert - MIXING

Entertaining is like a muscle

Prepping, cooking, cleaning – is entertaining easy? It can get crazy before guests arrive for dinner, but the more I entertain, the easier it is. It’s like a muscle–the more you use it, the stronger you get, and the easier it becomes!

You become more proficient, it becomes smoother–just like getting in shape and exercising. After awhile you develop a rhythm, and it takes less effort.

Entertaining more also increases your confidence in your ability to do it.

We all feel better when we believe that we can do something. And with entertaining, you want to do it well.
