George’s Day Dessert – Strawberries & (Coconut) Cream

If dragon slaying is not on your agenda for today (who even has time for that nowadays?), it doesn’t mean you can celebrate St George’s Day! I was short on time, so I decided to go with a really easy re-interpretation of the great British Strawberry & Cream classic, but with a bit of an exotic twist…
George Day Easy Dessert | Strawberry & Coconut CreamYou wouldn’t suspect it, but that’s actually a dairy-free, totally vegan-friendly (and fairly healthy) take on the traditional recipe thanks to the use of coconut creamGeorge Day Easy Dessert | Strawberry & Coconut CreamAnd it’s the easiest of things to make! All you have to do is whip your coconut cream until soft peaks form (pretty much like you would with regular cream), slice up your strawberries and layer it all up in pretty glasses (mine are Bodum), and tadaaah! 🍓George Day Easy Dessert | Strawberry & Coconut CreamGeorge Day Easy Dessert | Strawberry & Coconut CreamGeorge day Easy Dessert | Strawberry & Coconut CreamI would highly recommend you listen to your heart when it comes to adding extra toppings; I went for fresh passionfruit and my boyfriend with maple syrup and both versions were delicious! And I’m pretty sure chocolate chips or salted caramel sauce would work wonders too!George Day Easy Dessert | Strawberry & Coconut Cream🍓 How are you celebrating the most British day of the year? Should I stick to my Pimm’s in the Garden plan or do you have any recipe I should check out? 🍓

    It looks delicious 🙂 Did you use canned coconut cream or creamed coconut? Thanks!!

      I used coconut cream, not coconut milk. They usually come in teeny-tiny Tetrapack style things? I’ve read you can do something similar with the top, thick part of canned coconut milk though. But I don’t think I’d work with creamed coconut… Let me know which option you go for and how it worked, definitely curious to find out!

    You sure know how to please me! 😀 Just one question, does the cream really taste like coconut?
