Cupcakes and Whipped Cream

Just wanted to give you an idea for a very yummy dessert or anytime treat.  Chocolate Avocado Cupcakes topped with Coconut Whipped Cream.
Coconut whipped cream is such a yummy treat.  I keep a small can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge at all times solely for making this.  You’ll want to chill the can for at few hours or overnight. When you remove the can from the fridge turn it upside down before you open it.  You don’t want the liquid, save that to throw in your morning smoothie, all you want is the solid coconut cream.  Like regular whipped cream it’s always a good idea to chill you bowl and beaters but it isn’t necessary.  Whip as you would regular cream, adding in your sweetener of choice (maple syrup, agave, sugar or honey).  You can also add some vanilla to suit your taste.

Not the best picture but I’m sure you can imagine a chocolate cupcake topped with coconut whipped cream = heavenly!  I sprinkled some ground cinnamon over top as well for a little additional flavour pop.
