2 POPULAR HEALTHY HOLIDAY REPLACMENTS WITH ONLY 3 INGREDEINTS IN EACH

Throughout the Holidays, we are all using Whip Cream in Hot Cocoa and Pies and Icing on Cakes and Cookies! Today, we have Brooke Thomas here to show us how to whip up 2 favorite toppings with only 3 ingredients in each. These are both great alternatives to store bought icings and cool whip and VERY SIMPLE and EASY to make!
 

1.) Dairy Free 3 ingredient Whip Cream and Icing

1 (13.5 ounce) can coconut milk
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Scoop out the thickened coconut cream at the top of the can after refrigerated and leave the water in the bottom of the can.
In a mixing bowl, whip all ingredients together using a hand mixer. This will form whipped cream.
 
 
Let the mixture sit in the fridge overnight and this will form a frosting/icing like consistency.

3 Ingredient Chocolate Icing and Fudge:

½ cup 100% pur maple syrup
¼ cup of coconut oil
2/3 cup of Cacao Powder

Mix ingredients in a high speed blender or by hand and you have a chocolate icing, or a dip for strawberries. You an also put this in the freezer for 30 minutes and becomes a soft fudge!

This delicious recipe only contains 3 ingredients and contains NO refined sugar. You can pour it into a glass dish or mini cupcake wrappers and place in the freezer for a soft fudge, use it as a dip for fruit, or as a topping for other desserts. We even made chocolate covered strawberries with it! 3-Ingredient Dark Chocolate Fudge ½ cup 100% pure maple syrup ¼ cup coconut oil 2/3 cup cacao powder Mix all ingredients in a high speed blender until well combined. Pour into glass dish or mini cupcake wrapper and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. If you want to use it as a dip, simply pour into a bowl and enjoy!
