Recipe Notes

I prefer Sweet Leaf stevia drops and Bulk Supplements Stevia Extract.

If you don’t have almond flour or coconut flakes, grind almonds and coconut shreds in a food processor or small blender until it is a coarse sand consistency. Keep the streusel stored separately in an airtight container so it stays crisp.

Optional: garnish with coconut whipped cream. To make it: Use 1 can of coconut milk, refrigerated overnight. Scoop out the solid white cream and add about 10 drops of vanilla stevia and 1 tsp vanilla. (Save the leftover water for a smoothie!) Whip cream until fluffy.

I ONLY recommend Thai Kitchen brand full fat (not lite) coconut milk. Other varieties do not work. You can also use a can of coconut cream.

Keep refrigerated for up to 10 days or frozen for 1 month.
