**READ ME: Keep in mind that while all of these recipes are Paleo. If you are currently doing the whole30, you will need to leave out all sweeteners!
I know, I know...but you will be able to enjoy them soon enough. Hang in there! I promise it's all worth it.**

{ dessert without the guilt }

What's that you say?? Sign us up! 

If there’s one thing people are always asking us for, it’s desserts. Usually when people think about desserts, they immediately think about food that is going to ruin the diet and be terrible for your health. But, fortunately thanks to paleo dessert recipes this no longer has to be the case. Like we have said over and over again, living a Paleo life has proven to be one of the best things we have ever done for our body. We have a whole new perspective on food and what we cook, so naturally our recipes are changing and evolving as time goes on. Finally, we are all able to indulge without guilt and without having to wear our fat jeans for the weeks to come. So just a fair warning...there has been a whole lot of experimenting in the kitchen! You may want to prepare yourself now.

This recipe we are sharing tonight isn't anything special. It's just delcious--plain and simple. And we think you should give it a try... it's refreshing after dinner and won't leave you feeling like a fat kid in a spandex suit. {eeek} Fresh fruit, coconut milk "whipped cream", and a dash of cinnamon on top. Enjoy!

  • fresh fruit of your choice 
{we did peaches, raspberries, and blackberries in the photo above}
  • coconut milk whipped cream {recipe below}
  • dash of cinnamon
  • sprinkle of coconut flakes; optional
  • 1 can organic coconut milk {full fat--don't get light!!!!}
  • 1 tsp sweetener of your choice: pure vanilla, raw honey, etc.
1. Chill 1 can of full-fat coconut milk in the fridge overnight. **TIP: We always keep 1 or 2 cans in the fridge at all times.

2. Remove the can from the fridge, carefully without turning/tossing/tipping/etc. Open up the can and scoop the cream off the top into a deep bowl. Try to get as little liquid as possible. 

3. Using a hand or standing mixer, beat the cream for 2-5 minutes. It won't double in volume the way that dairy cream does, but it will get fluffier as you incorporate some air. You can also add a little honey or vanilla at this point, we like to add a tiny bit of vanilla. Place a dollop on top your dessert, and indulge!
