My husband, daughter and I will be leaving this Monday for a week of visiting family, and having fun in sunny California. So I won’t be posting this week, but will once I have returned! We have been looking forward to this trip for quite a while now, and I can’t wait to leave and have some good bonding time with my little family.
Meanwhile, I wanted to answer a few comments.
Please, please, please tell us how you made the coconut cream pictured with this post. I have tried in vain to produce a whipped coconut cream for my allergic kids. This would be a great help! I love your blog – I just found it and will be checking back often! -Anonymous
Anonymous, I would LOVE to tell you how to make the coconut whipped cream, but the last time I made it, it flopped! It seems to be related to the weather? So, I am going to be working on it a bit. I made it numerous times before and never had a problem…… But I was curious, how were you trying to make it before? It could be helpful to me on my quest. 🙂
And then from Candace, on my Chocolate Pudding recipe
Looks yummy. I don’t have arrowroot, any idea if agar powder works the same way?
I have personally never used agar before, so I can’t speak from experience, but I think that you could make it work. The only thing that I am not sure about is whether it would “set” the same. In this article about how to use it, it said it would be similar to gelatin, which would give a much firmer set to the pudding than the arrowroot I used. Anyway, you can check the article out for more info on how to use it.
And then, I got this great comment on my Chocolate Ice cream (made with coconut milk) from Minty and thought I would point it out to you all. This is one creative lady! And I think even braver than me in trying new things out! Way to go Minty!
ooh yum! I just made this with a curry twist! about 1&1/2 tbsp. I have agave and use it myself, but my kids… they don’t go for it, so we used straight up sugar – organic, at least. (about 6 tbsp) and some toasted coconut. my kids and I just sat on the floor and licked the mixing bowl clean… the machine is doing its work… we can’t wait to eat it frozen! thanks for the recipe!
Wow, I would have never thought of using curry in ice cream before, but I see how that could go well with the coconut milk. Great idea!
Thanks all for the wonderful comments and questions. It’s so fun to get feedback from everyone. 🙂
