  1. Place the coconut milk can upside-down in the refrigerator for at least 5 hours, but best if left in the fridge overnight to allow the liquid to separate from the fat.
  2. Refrigerate a large bowl together with the whisks of your electric hand mixer for at least 10 minutes to cool.
  3. Gently turn the can back right-side-up, and open the can. Pour out the liquid layer on the top, and save this for a future smoothie or curry. For this recipe, we only need the thick fat layer on the bottom of the can.
  4. Using a spoon, scoop out the solid white coconut milk fat into a large bowl. The amount of coconut milk fat can vary vastly from brand to brand. If you don't find much coconut milk fat at the bottom of your can, consider trying again with a different brand.
  5. Whip together the coconut fat for 3 - 4 minutes, and continue until peaks start to form that hold their shape when you stop whipping.
  6. Then add in the icing sugar and vanilla, and whip again for an additional minute.
  7. Use the coconut whip to top brownies, fruit crumbles, watermelon pizza, or as a topping on your favourite hot chocolate.

really simple to make and really tasty too, but it melts super quickly when put on hot drinks. i suppose this has to do with it just being cold coconut milk, but it’s still a good recipe.

So glad you're enjoying it, Jonna, indeed the hot temperature can cause this one to melt a bit :)
