MCT "Cook~n~Craft!"

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome back to another "Cook~n~Craft!"
For those of you who are new to my blog, on the 1st Monday of each month my team & I share with you are FAVORITE quick meals / snacks we create with a busy schedule! ;) 

I have a SUPER QUICK & EASY snack for you today.  When I first transitioned to a vegan, the ONE thing that I did miss was my homemade Whip Cream!  So, after trying a few different non-dairy whip creams, I just decided to throw this together & this is my FAVORITE one!! :)  This is what I use:

~ One can of THAI Coconut Milk

Just so you know, you do NOT have to use these EXACT name brands, BUT this Coconut Milk seems to work the BEST & just make sure you use some kind of REAL MAPLE syrup & not a regular pancake syrup! ;) 

When I know I want whip cream, I put one can of the coconut milk in the refrigerator over night, that works BEST!  When you take it out of the refrigerator, DON'T shake it!  When you open up the can ONLY scoop out the thick portion of it! Do NOT use the liquid only because you WILL have watery whip cream & that is not good!  Put it into a mixing bowl & then add your maple syrup & vanilla then blend it up! I just use a hand mixer OR I just throw it in a blender! Now, I used around 1 TBLS of the maple syrup & 1 TSP of the vanilla.  BUT, please just use your measurements because mine might not work for you!  Definitely adjust it to YOUR liking! 

Look how AMAZING this looks???  I just LOVE this & it comes out so creamy & fluffy!  This will stay in your refrigerator for up to 3 days, which mine NEVER does!!! lol.... We eat it the same day! ;) 



Here is my vegan whip cream on some fresh strawberries & blueberries....my FAVORITE combination for a quick & YUMMY snack! :) 



Unfortunately I don't have a project for you today :(  I have been sick since last week & I finally broke down and went to see my Dr.!  I was trying to "MAN UP" but I couldn't stand my ear pain :(  I ended up having a nasty ear infection.  Now I am at the end of it & just battling this cough! My poor hubby was off last week with a sinus infection :(  We are just praying our boys stay healthy!  Our symptoms started after we both got the flu shot!!! I feel like I get sick EVERY YEAR after getting that shot!!! I should know better by now! lol.... ;) 

Like ALWAYS, my team NEVER disappoints!  Click on each name to visit each blog to see their FAVORITE recipes & leave them some LOVE! :) 





I hope you all give one of our recipes a try & I hope you were inspired here today! 

Thanks for stopping by, have a FABULOUS day & I will see you all back here soon! :) xoxo

  7. WOW Emma, your whipped cream looks so yummy. I never used to get the flu shot, I've been getting it every year for a few years now, and I've been lucky, I've never gotten sick. They say you can still get sick, but not as bad. Who knows, watch me get sick this time, LOL. I haven't gotten the flu shot yet. I did get a chest/head cold about a month ago though. I Hope you and your hubby get better soon and I hope the boys don't get sick. HUGS
