More specifically, and in my case, it has an ingredient called Coconut Cream and you’re like whaaaaaaaa? I know coconut milk but where on earth do I find the cream version?
What if I told you that all it required was a refrigerator! Would you believe me?

Sometimes it happened to me so often that there were times it left me feeling overwhelmed and wondering if it was even possible to make this transition to healthier eating. All I can say is stay strong! You've got what it takes!
Read on for my incredibly EASY solution to Coconut Cream and another tip for your nutrition toolbox!
MAKE YOUR OWN COCONUT (shhhh…it kinda makes itself!)
1 can of full fat coconut
* Keep a couple cans in the fridge at all times so if this comes up, you’re prepared.
* You can use the leftover coconut water for smoothies. Store in a mason jar in your fridge.
* To make whipped coconut cream, follow the instructions above and then add the coconut cream to a mixing boil. Add a desired sweetener (raw honey or maple syrup) and any flavours (vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg) and beat with an electric mixer until it is fluffy. It will lighten up but it will not increase in volume like whipping cream.
