Coconut Whipped Cream Stuffed Strawberries

Time for a sweet treat!  I love dessert!  Especially one that won't wreck my gut after eating it!  I simply whipped some coconut milk, hollowed out some strawberries, added a topping and this yummy little treat came to life.  Easy and delicious!

Coconut Whipped Cream Stuffed Strawberries
1 can Thai Kitchen coconut milk
1 t. vanilla extract
Toppings: cinnamon, chopped almonds, coconut flakes, etc.
-Place unopened can of coconut milk in fridge overnight (do not shake can before doing this!)
-Open can and scoop out all of the coconut cream on top into a bowl (do not use the coconut water in the bottom of the can - save for smoothies or protein shakes)
-Add vanilla and whip!  You can use a whisk (it just takes longer) or a handheld mixer on high for a few minutes or until it has thickened and has taken on a whipped cream texture.
-Wash and hollow out strawberries.  Spoon whipped cream into strawberries.  Add topping of choice (or keep 'em plain) and enjoy!

Store extra whipped cream in a covered container in the fridge for a few days.  (Make sure it's covered - I left mine uncovered by accident and it turned hard as a rock!  Oops...)
