Preparation

Lime-Coconut Cream

  1. In a bowl, mash avocado with a fork until smooth.
  2. Scoop out the solid portion of the coconut milk (leaving it in the fridge overnight allows the fat to separate from the liquid) and add to the mashed avocado. Using a fork, mix until smooth.
  3. Add zest, lime juice, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Whisk until mixture is smooth and all ingredients are well combined.

Note: There will be leftover lime-coconut cream. It is great as a dip for fruit! Use the remaining coconut milk in your smoothies.

Coconut Chia Pancakes

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, chia seeds, shredded coconut, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together plant-based milk, vinegar, coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  3. Slowly pour the liquid mixture into dry mixture and stir until just combined. Do not overmix, as it will alter the texture of the pancakes.
  4. Preheat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly grease with cooking oil.
  5. When skillet is hot, pour in 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and edges are crisp.
  6. Serve hot with Lime-Coconut Cream. Fresh blackberries, lime zest and shredded coconut are other delicious toppings.
