Coconut Creme, it is a great replacement for yogurt for breakfast.        (makes 8 servings, or less if you gobble it down!)

Ingredients:

  • meat from 3 young thai coconuts (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice and add lemon zest (I like to add a few drops of YL lemon oil)
  • 2 TBS coconut butter 
  • 2 TBS Coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1/4 cup Chia seeds (benefits)
  • 1/2 Tbsp Vanilla extract
  •  1 vanilla bean, scrap seeds,discard pod 
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • coconut water- add enough to make a nice liquid consistency. the chia seeds will thicken the mixture
  • optional: add 1/4 cup fresh or frozen organic blueberries

Instructions:

  1. Place all ingredients into a Vitamix, blend for a few minutes or until very smooth. 
  2. Cover and place into the fridge.
  3. Serve by topping with fresh blueberries. Make it like fruit on the bottom type yogurts an drizzle some  True Grit NingXia Berry Syrup™. learn more

Tartlets (optional) but this makes it a great desert!

ingredients:

  • 2.25 cups almond flour
  • .25 tsp salt- heaping
  • .75 tsp nutmeg
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • .25 Cup+ 2 Tbsp oil (used coconut butter or oil)
  • 1.5 TBS water

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Combine dry ingredients.
  3. Add in wet ingredients and form a crumbly dough using a spatula.
  4. Press equal amounts of dough into greased tartlet pans.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes or serve raw. Both ways are delicious!
  6. Carefully remove tarts from oven and onto a cooling rack and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (this helps with the removal of the tarts from the pans)
  7. Carefully invert a pan in your hand and using a spoon tap the back of pan until the tart pops out into your hand. **THESE TARTS ARE VERY FRAGILE SO BE CAREFUL WHILE WORKING WITH THEM.
  8. Spoon the vanilla filling into each tart shell and top with seasonal berries.  

Notes:

* I oiled parchment paper and put it in the bottom of muffin top pans, they came out beautifully or use tartlets paper liners.

* To make this vanilla instead of lemon- replace lemon juice with coconut water. the lemon flavor is mild, so you can add anything to it that you like.
