Breakfast goes bananas over Coconut Cream

One of the products I raved about in the Thrive Market haul /review video I posted last week was organic Coconut Cream by Native Forest. 

There is no shortage of recipes that Coconut Cream can be used in but this is my current favorite that I like to make for breakfast. It is super easy to whip up and leaves plenty of room for creativity!

Breakfast goes bananas over Coconut Cream

NOTE: Put your can of Coconut Cream in the refrigerator the night before you intend to make this recipe. It helps the coconut fat solidify and makes it easier to use and more fun to eat! One can makes enough cream for two to three servings.
  • All the yummy cream will solidify and rise to the top of the can. So, turn your can of Coconut Cream upside down and open the bottom. 
  • Then pour off the the liquid off into a glass. This can be added to smoothies later.
  • Take a spoon and scoop out all the coconut cream solids into a bowl.
  • Add 1tsp of raw honey (to keep it vegan, use sugar or other sweetener instead.)
  • Then, whip the cream and honey together. You can use a wire whisk or an electric mixer. Whatever tool you decide to use, just make sure you whip it good! The consistency will be like a heavy cream instead of Cool Whip. Set aside.
  • Slice a banana and arrange on your plate or in your bowl. It's your breakfast. Eat it however you want!
  • Then, scoop your coconut cream on top of the banana slices.
  • Optional: Sprinkle a dash of Maca Root or cacao powder on top.
  • Store any remaining cream in a covered container in the refrigerator.
Get creative and share your results below!
