Coconut Cream Sundae

I had some left over coconut milk from making Thai Chicken the other night and thought it might make a great whipped cream substitute for making a sundae -- I was SO RIGHT!

  • vanilla ice cream
  • coconut milk
  • Hershey's chocolate syrup
  • sweet pecan halves (or other nut)
Put a few scoops of ice cream in a serving dish. Mix the coconut milk well then spoon on top of the ice cream. Sprinkle whole or chopped nuts on top. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

The coconut milk doesn't really taste coconutty. It isn't as light as whipped cream, but it is as creamy. Also, it does a neat trick -- it freezes quickly and hardens sort of like Magic Shell.
