K for Kiwi! Kiwis are loaded with Vitamin C as well as antioxidants, dietary fiber and potassium. I love when ‘mistakes’ happen in the kitchen and creates something new and better! Originally when I created this recipe, I envisioned a layer of coconut milk with chia seeds, however, the coconut milk coupled with the chia seeds didn’t set as I intended – it was very loose. The cashew/macadamia cream goes a long way, it turned out that I didn’t really need the additional cream after all. – I still made the coconut whipped cream as a topping, you can easily omit. So with regards to the ‘mistake’ there’s no way I was to get rid of the coconut milk or the precious vanilla beans I used…so I made ice cream! Enjoy – I’ll be sharing my coconut ice cream shortly. 🙂

[At this point to keep the recipe raw – just add the vanilla bean to the cashew ‘yogurt’] or add coconut whipped cream to top.

Easy Coconut Whipped Cream:
-Refrigerate can of Coconut milk overnight. Remove from refrigerator – open can: cream should have separated from coconut water.
