Drunken Strawberries and Coconut Cream, Up Close

I have to be honest: like a lot of people, I’m not that into Valentine’s Day. It’s not so much that I think it’s a Hallmark-conspiracy or anything like that. I just think you should celebrate love every chance you get, not just for one day in February. That being said, you’ll never catch me complaining about an excuse to make (and eat) dessert.

I’m normally a super rich, molten chocolate kind of person — the richer, the better. The man in my life? He’s not nearly as big a fan of hyper-decadent desserts, so I wanted to make something we could both enjoy. This recipe, drunken strawberries with coconut cream, is the result.

Fresh strawberries are cooked down with sweet moscato and sugar, then spooned on top of thick coconut cream. The subtle sweetness of the coconut cream complements the wine-simmered strawberries perfectly. This dessert is rich and satisfying, but still easy to eat. No chocolate fatigue here!

The strawberries and coconut cream could not be easier to prepare, and they present beautifully. Plus, this dessert is all-natural: there’s nothing artificial or processed here. It’s also a great way to spoil the vegan in your life. Share it with someone special, or just treat yourself!
