Jealousy is the mother of invention.
I bought a can of coconut milk last week and I was surprised when I opened it to see how much solid coconut “cream” was on top.
This had never happened to me before, so I wondered what was different. My reasoning:
1. It’s not light coconut milk
2. It’s winter
The cream was solidified to a butter-like texture in my 62* house. To simulate this, put your can in the refrigerator for a day before you proceed to make Cacao(nut) Euphoria.
Cacao Euphoria came out so good! This would make a delicious cake frosting, mousse, or truffle filling. My family had no idea it was vegan!
(Actually the first was ecstasy and I thought that may be too risk-ay of a title for a blog written by a high school student. Just a little.)
On to the recipe!!
- 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp packed coconut cream*
- 2 tbsp cocoa powder (Ghirardelli)
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp agave nectar**
With a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream together the cream, cocoa, salt, vanilla and agave. Mix for two minutes until light and fluffy.
Slather on everything you eat.
*To find coconut cream, open a can of cold, regular coconut milk. The solid top layer is the cream.
**Substitute 2 packets of NuNatural’s stevia, if desired.
Right after I finished typing this post up, guess who rang my doorbell?
Thank you Tristan!!

I like the red, I dislike the dress. Sigh!!
P.S. I never take mirror photos of myself, but I snapped a few dress shopping for comparative purposes.
Want more humnut pizza??
