Whipped coconut milk:
Place a can of full fat coconut milk in freezer for 6+ hours. Skim top layer of thick milk off top. (reserve the rest for a smoothie)
Place in chilled mixing bowl, add dash of cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1 T honey, mix well with hand mixer until consistency of whipped cream. Yum!
