  1. That looks really good! I love using banana to sweeten things.
    I’ve been seeing coconut milk whipped topping recipes and I’m wondering where you can get coconut milk?

    • You can get coconut milk at a regular grocery store. You can usually find it with the Asian and/or Hispanic foods. We usually get ours from Walmart because that’s where I’ve been able to find the best prices on it around here.

      Or, you can make your own: http://ournaturaljourney.com/2012/02/23/how-to-make-your-own-coconut-milk/ I haven’t tried to use homemade coconut milk for whipped topping yet, though, so I’m not sure how well it would work. The batch I made wasn’t as creamy as the canned version we usually buy.

    This does look good! I’m going to give it a try! Dark chocolate works for Audrey with her milk allergy, too. Thanks!
