1 refrigerated tinned can of coconut milk (you can use coconut cream)
1 teaspoon/5ml pure vanilla
1 tablespoon/15ml icing/powdered sugar (I never use it)
1/2 teaspoon xanthan or guar gum (not necessary but gives it extra body)
Remove the coconut milk from the refrigerator (it is imperative that it is very cold), pour it into a clean mixing bowl. add the vanilla, sugar and xanthan if using. Beat the milk either by hand, in a stand mixer or a food processor until thick and creamy (about 3 minutes). Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate. If leaving overnight it may be necessary to "refresh" it a bit by whipping by hand for 30 seconds.
