Decadent Whipped Cream Tropical Breakfast Bowl And How To Whip Coconut Cream

So I just told you about the new Tropical Coconut Granola I made, right? The night I made it, I snacked on some larger clusters of it the entire night, really loving its apricot-mango-sourness in combination with the exotic-mild coconuts. The next morning, I still hadn’t had enough, and decided to make myself some decadent coconut cream oatmeal, topped off with whipped coconut cream and the tropical granola!

The first post I ever wrote concerns itself with whipped coconut cream, but I really haven’t had much luck with it. Sometimes, it turns out perfectly, and, at other times, all I get is a runny mess of coconut cream. This is solely due to the brand of coconut cream used, so, today, before I tell you about my tropical bowl, I shall share the solution I have come up with with you: combine two different brands of (German) coconut cream cans.

Update: The brand of coconut cream that almost always works for me is Bamboo Garden (not pictured below).

As always, I placed both of them in the fridge over night, and both of these brand contain only coconut cream and water, both at a ratio of 90% to 10%. When I took them out of the fridge the next morning, the one on the left had hardenend completely, the one on the right had hardenend a little:

I scooped out both the ultra-hardened coconut cream and the softer cream, combining the two to make the best texture:

If you whip the mixture of both coconut cream cans together long enough, you will get the best texture I have ever achieved. Whisk in a bit of maple syrup for sweetening, or some cocoa powder for a chocolate mousse.

If anyone has had better luck with another type of (German) coconut cream, please let me know in the comments below!

Coming back to the Breakfast Bowl… I think you can imagine what I did with the whipped coconut cream. Yup, I added a huge dollop to both the oatmeal and as a topping of the oatmeal…yum, yum, YUM!

As you can see, I also added some vitamin C in the form of oranges and some of my freshly made tropical coconut granola. If I weren’t allergic to pineapple, I would have added some to really round off the “pina colada” feeling of this luxurious yet healthy breakfast!

Enjoy this warm or cold (I opted for the warm version, I’m always freezing in the morning – or any other time of the day, really), and switch it up by adding cocoa powder to the whipped cream, or a splash of pure vanilla extract! Be creative!
