I love Valentine’s Day. The logical side of me is always thinking this is such a silly holiday and an expensive one that is really unnecessary. But ever since I had kids I fell in love (pun not intended) with Valentine’s Day all over again. It doesn’t have to be a hyper consumer holiday. The best gift you can give somebody you love is your time, a healthy meal, a drawing, a note, or even a kiss. Each year I like creating really fun cards and gifts for our best friends and loved ones. We decorate the house with hearts and color with pink and glitter. It’s just so fun.
This year we plan to cuddle up and watch a family movie and drink hot chocolate with cute whipped coconut cream hearts. And I’m over at the Honest Company today sharing this creative recipe with all of you! These little hearts are like pillows of cold fluffy cream. And the hot chocolate is full of unique spices. Trust me and just go for it. You’ll be glad you did.
I am going to share on my blog today the recipe for these cute little whipped cream hearts. I'm attached a few instructional photos as well that Honest Company didn't post.
But for the spiced hot chocolate, you'll want to head on over to their blog.
WHIPPED CREAM HEARTS
1 can coconut milk, chilled overnight in fridge
2 Tbsp brown rice syrup
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
- Open the can of coconut milk and pour out the contents into a bowl. Separate the thick white cream from the water. Use only the thick white cream for this recipe. (Honest Tip: Save the water for a smoothie!)
- Using a hand mixer, whip the rice syrup, the coconut milk and the vanilla until everything is well blended and the chunks are gone.
- When it’s nice and whipped and thick and creamy, you’ll want to transfer this to a small baking dish – I used a bread pan.
- Flatten mixture and smooth it out nicely with a spatula.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours then use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes. Enjoy immediately.
Good luck and I hope you have a fun Valentine’s Day. Get creative and fill your house with hearts and pink and cupcakes! Why not!?
