Coconut Creams

 coconut creams

To be honest I didn’t expect to write about Juliet’s birth. My birth’s have all been fairly straight forward. Quick, but otherwise uneventful and Juliet’s was no exception.

However, there was one element of Juliet’s birth that made it markedly different to the others and when I think of the day she was born it is this that fills my head and my heart.

Juliet’s birth was filled with uncontrollable emotion. A fear that I had never anticipated consumed me.

Perhaps it was because we were in the same room that I gave birth to my angel baby a year earlier.

Perhaps it was because the birth prior to Juliet’s was so heart wrenching.

I’m really not sure.

What I do know is that I have never felt how I felt when Juliet was leaving my body. I was terrified and I was hurting on every level.

But then I held her.

At that moment I felt a sense of relief beyond anything I can describe.

At that moment I felt a sense of relief so intense that if poured through my eyes and shook my entire body.

At that moment I believed that everything was going to be ok.

    It’s no wonder you were terrified, anyone would be, given you circumstances, and all your followers felt an overwhelming sense of relief, too! xxx

    I thought I’d share my latest obsession Bianca! I am obsessed with your coconut creams and I have topped them with goji berries and a mix of toasted coconut, pepitas, sunflower seeds and linseeds! Divine, so thank you xx

    • Oh I love it!!! Thank YOU!!! Glad you are enjoying them. x

  • Oh man, these look so good – shouldn’t look at posts like this after dinner, as now I am just craving something sweet.

    Do you use the whole can of coconut cream including the water?

    • HI Nicola, the one I use has very little water and I am always rushing so I use all of it but it perhaps would be best to drain away the water just because I know some brands leave more than others. I hope this helps.

    Made these over the w/e thought they would set and be like peppermint creams, sadly not as you have to store in the freezer so can not be wrapped and given a presents.

    • HI Sandi, sorry, no this one needs to be kept in the freezer. We do have many other recipes that are suitable as gifts, you might like this link https://wholefoodsimply.com/category/all/celebrate/gifts/
      Again, I am sorry you were disappointed with the recipe, I hope you find many others that you enjoy.

    Would coconut cream concentrate work for these? If so what would be the measurement. We don’t have tin’s of coconut here in MM:) We have can’s of coconut and I have coconut cream concentrate. Thanks!
