Canned coconut milk is the thickest form of coconut milk. It’s more like cream. Coconut milk in the carton is too watery to really make milkshakes or creamy desserts like mint pie recipe.
It is made from the actual meat of the coconut. Canned coconut milk contains about 4 grams of carbs for the entire can. That’s why it is perfect for low carb Keto dessert recipes.
Inside this recipe I used raw cacao nibs. Cacao nibs are the raw component used to make chocolate. These nibs are an antioxidant superfood. Cacao nibs are simply crushed cocoa beans.
Cacao nibs are a great source of flavanols. They don’t melt the way chocolate chips do. They are like chocolate seeds. I like it better for this mint pie recipe.
Coconut oil is often used in keto vegan recipes. It’s the edible oil extracted from mature coconuts. The high fat concentration is resistant to going moldy.
Furthermore coconut oil is a SUPERFOOD. Coconut oil’s fatty acids have amazing medicinal properties. It’s great for this mint pie recipe.
Sucralose for baking is created to equal sugar in ratio. This zero calorie sweetener is generic for stevia. It’s less expensive but you can use either one for this coconut cream pie recipe.
