Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas with a house full of family, friends, and love, enjoy the holiday's!
There is nothing like Grandma's famous cranberry fluff that my aunt makes every year, however I don't eat the usual ingredients of cool whip or marshmallows, so what's a girl to do? Veganize it! So I did, it was delicious and tastes almost just like her yummy recipe I grew up eating :) Hope you enjoy it too!
Makes about 4-5 cups
1/2lb package whole cranberries, or 1 can organic jellied cranberries with cranberry pieces
1 1/2 cups pineapple, or 1 can pineapple chunks, drained (slice if you want them smaller)
1 15oz can organic coconut milk
1/2 cup vegan powdered sugar, or to taste
1oz chopped walnuts
2 cups vegan marshmallows (optional)
-First put your can of coconut milk into the fridge overnight, no need to shake or anything else.
-Carefully open your can of coconut milk and scoop out the thick white part into a 1 quart size mixing bowl, it ends up being about 1/2-3/4 of the can, try not to get too much of the more liquid part.
-Use a hand mixer to mix the powdered sugar into the coconut milk until you get stiff peaks like thick cool whip.
- For your cranberries you can grind the whole cranberries into small pieces using a food processor, blender, or if you happened to have a meat grinder :/ that works well.
-Fold all the ingredients together and chill until served.
