Notes

To store: Best served same day - freshly made. Keep frozen. Thaw on the counter to soften.
Sweetener alternatives: you may sub an equal amount of coconut sugar, maple sugar, organic sugar, or 1/8 tsp pure stevia powder.
To use a liquid sweetener: use only the coconut cream portion of the can + 2-3 Tbs maple syrup and 2-3 Tbs coconut water or other liquid. 
Instant espresso may be subbed for a shot of espresso. Simply reduce the coconut water by 3 Tbs. Brewed coffee may work, too, if you use double strength.
