Coconut santa pots recipe

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free, quick & easy.

A cookie base, with a coconut whipped cream filling, topped with a berry swirl.
These little Santa pots are the perfect after-dinner treat, they're not super sweet or too rich.

The cookie base along with the coconut cream filling is scrumptious! Ultra creamy & moorish. Great for the whole family to get involove in making!
The cream I used is the Natures Charm 'coconut whipping cream'.
You can always use a vegan coconut cream, coconut whip or squirty cream.
 I used the Natures Charm cream as it whips up into a really lovely thick cream, which I then added an extra teaspoon of coconut extract for a more added flavour.

Preparation- Overnight
Serves- 6
Level- Easy

...
Ingredients for the cookie base
-150g of gluten-free cookies
-50g of coconut oil (melted)

Ingredients for the cream filling
-800g of whipping cream (you can use coconut whip)
-1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
-1 teaspoon of coconut extract
+
-1/4 teaspoon of strawberry extract
-Natural strawberry powder (You can always use pink food colouring)
...

To make the cookie base
Step 1- Melt the coconut oil and place into a bowl, along with the crushed cookies and mix until like wet sand.

Step 2- Add 1-2 tablespoons of cookie mixture into some serving glasses/cups and press down until packed.

Set aside.

To make the cream layer
Step 1- Place the whipping cream into a bowl and whisk until light.
I use my stand mixer fitted with the balloon whisk attachment.

Step 2- Add in the vanilla & coconut extract and whip to combine.

Step 3- Place 1/3 of the mixture into a separate bowl and set aside.

Step 4- Divide the remaining whipped mixture on top of the cookie bases.

Step 5- Into the 1/3 mixture, add in 1/4 teaspoon of strawberry extract and strawberry powder, gently mix to combine.

Step 6- Add the pink whipping cream into a piping bag fitted with an open star tip nozzle and pipe a swirl on top of the pots. This creates a santas hat (As seen in the photos).

I decorated the pots with cacao nibs and a sprinkle for the nose to bring the Santas to life.

Best enjoyed day of making.
Store in the fridge.
