"Cream of Coconut" for Breakfast

This Cream of Coconut makes a tasty, satisfying and filling breakfast...
This recipe is grain free, gluten free and dairy free (unless you choose to use milk).

Ingredients for 1 serving:
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp sweet potato flour
  • Natural sweetener of your choice (optional)
  • Fresh fruits, nuts, seeds...etc (optional)
Pour water in a small saucepan and set on medium heat. Whisk in the coconut flour and the sweet potato flour until there are not lumps left. Let the liquid thicken (it only takes a few minutes) until it reaches desired consistency. Add your sweetener and stir well.
Pour your Cream of Coconut in a bowl and enjoy as it is or add some toppings of your choice.

If you like it...
  • Thicker & richer: use raw milk, nut/seed milk or coconut milk instead of water. I like a combination of half water and half milk.
  • More fancy: use a cool/lukewarm tea or herbal infusion of your liking instead of water. I think a rooibos chai would be a nice choice.
  • More flavorful: add some herbs or spices of your choice. Vanilla extract would be a nice addition.
  • More chocolaty: whisk in 1 tbsp of cocoa powder before it thickens or let some chocolate chips melt.
