Ingredients
  • 1 12 oz bag of frozen raspberries (keep frozen- don't thaw)
  • 1 cup of frozen blue berries
  • 2 cups of grapes, halved
  • 4 or 5 kiwi, thinly sliced (or any fruit of your choosing)
  • 1 large lime
  • 3 cans of CHILLED BPA-free coconut milk (like this) OR 16 oz. of heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon sugar or more to taste (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or more to taste (optional)
Instructions
Fruit Salad
  1. Whip your coconut milk or heavy cream into a thick cream (see below for coconut cream instructions), adding in vanilla and honey (if so desired).
  2. Stir in the juice of the lime and then gently fold in all your fruit.
Coconut Whip Cream
  1. Place the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator and leave it there until well-chilled (I did mine overnight). This will allow the coconut milk to separate, leaving a firm layer on top.
  2. Scoop out this firm layer of coconut cream that has solidified on top being careful not to scoop into the water that is under it. Leave the water (it's great in smoothies or just drink it up).
  3. Place the cream in the bowl of a stand mixer. Whip on high for 3 - 5 minutes until coconut milk becomes fluffy and light. Drizzle in honey and vanilla during the last minute or two.
