Have you heard of using whipped coconut cream in place of whipped cream? It's amazing. Most grocery stores carry cans of coconut cream (different than coconut milk), and it's as simple to make as whipped cream. And delicious!! It's so light and creamy, and the coconut flavor is very mellow. It's great to pair with other flavors as the coconut flavor isn't overpowering. It's also a great vegan option.

Since it is so light and pure, I wanted to try it out with something simple first. These mini trifles consists of lightly sweetened whipped coconut cream, brownie chunks, and raspberries. It takes all of 10 minutes to prepare these, and all of 2 minutes to devour.

You could even make my Greek Yogurt Brownies to use in these, so you can be completely guilt-free when you eat both servings.

Because you probably will. Just keepin' it real, my friends.

The light coconut cream is the star here, with it's light sweetness and smooth flavor. The brownies give you a bit of indulgence, and the bright tart raspberries are a nice surprise. 

Eat one now, and stash the other away in the fridge for later. I won't tell!
