                  Vegan vanilla "cream cheese" frosting

                  Due to the temperature sensitivity of coconut butter, this is not a good recipe for a warm summer day. For the best flavor and texture, have all ingredients at room temperature, 68° to 72°F, and follow this recipe exactly. Yield: 1 1/4, 2 1/2, or 3 3/4 cups frosting. Equipment needed: Any style blender and a digital scale, for the coconut butter.

                  Makes 2 1/2 cups for 12 cupcakes, use a regular blender.


                  • 1 cup  Unsweetened coconut milk (1/2 cup+ coconut milk powder From Hawaii with Love mixed with 1 cup warm water)
                  • 2 cups coconut sugar (From Hawaii with Love) grind into fine powder or use powdered sugar
                  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla flavor
                  • 2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
                  • pinch sea salt
                  • 1 cup packed pure coconut butter (not coconut oil), at room temperature


                  • Have ready all the ingredients at room temperature. 
                  • In blender, place the coconut milk, sweetener, vanilla, lemon juice, and salt. Blend until smooth and the sweetener is completely dissolved.
                  • Add the coconut butter last and blend until very smooth, translucent, and gummy. Pour into a bowl.
                  • Refrigerate for 1 hour, until it solidifies a bit. Remove it from the refrigerator and spread it on your cake or cupcakes. The frosting is most spreadable at room temperature. If you chill it for too long or store it in the refrigerator, it will solidify and be too hard to spread. If that happens, just set it out to warm very slowly to room temperature.


                  Vegan Flourless Brownies

                  With just a handful of ingredients, these decadent chocolate brownies are the perfect easy dessert and are also a wonderful afternoon treat with tea or coffee.

                  Bob’s gluten-free egg replacer is the secret ingredient when not using eggs.


                  • equivalent of 4 large eggs using Bob's gluten-free egg replacer
                  • 1 cup unsweetened cacoa powder 
                  • 1 cup of coconut sugar (From Hawaii with Love)  
                  • ¼ cup + 1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil 
                  • 2 tsp vanilla 
                  • 1/8 tsp sea salt


                  Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). In a bowl, mix all the ingredients until velvety smooth (I used my Vitamix!).  Pour into a parchment paper lined 8 x 4 loaf pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes. The brownies will be soft in the middle at 30 minutes and have a slight jiggle. Leave the brownies for at least 5 hours before cutting and eating (I personally couldn’t wait that long and I put them in the fridge after about 15 min of cooling down time, offered them to Divinity with love... and then ate them about an hour later!).
