Step 1: Place a can of coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight. When ready to whip cream, place the mixing bowl in the freezer for at least 10 minutes. Remove the can from the refrigerator. Remove hardened cream that has risen to the top of the can, careful not to add any of the liquid at the bottom.
Step 2: Whip cream for about 30 seconds. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and whip for an additional minute until the cream thickens and peaks form. Store whipped cream in the refrigerator until you’re ready to prepare the parfaits.
Step 3: Rinse and drain mandarin oranges and pineapple chunks. Fill cups with mandarin oranges, pineapple, and top with whipped cream. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
Note: This recipe makes 4 small parfaits or 2 large parfaits.
