    with a coupla squares of Lindt 85%, Saoirse I think you may have inadvertantly come up with the most amazing primal chocolate mousse recipe. After a few hours in the fridge I went to make a coffee with it (still very nice, a bit mocha like but not ott) and then had a spoonful on its own, then another and then another... It is amazing!!!

    This turned out super runny for me...seemed even runnier than my plain coconut milk? Maybe I need to play with the proportions, and of course add the chocolate!

    I just made another batch, and made a couple of observations:
    I accidentally used a light coconut milk (which I had accidentally bought in the first place!)
    I made up the difference in fat content with extra coconut oil. I think the end result is runnier than the full fat version, but it's not chilled yet.

    I took a small batch of it and mixed it with 85% chocolate per NourishedEm's precedence. If the original creamer was crack, this may be Primal Coconut Chocolate Heroin Creamer.

    Now, I am actually scared to make this...I might end up needing intervention or something!!

    OH.... gonna have to try this... I have some dagoba cacao powder... Going to have to "whip up" some! I'm thinking you could substitute this in a cheese cake... especially w/the chocolate!

    Mine never turned into a whipped cream consistency either. I made it at night with beaters in a bowl and it was like milk. In the morning after sitting in the fridge I beat it one more time and it only became a little thicker like organic heavy cream. I did add an extract though and maybe that was why.

    I had to heat up the coconut oil in order to turn it into liquid and pour it in. Maybe I should wait till it cools down a bit?

    Mmmm. This looks heavily! And it's the one reason why I won't go dairy free -- because I need cream in my coffee. I will have to try this next week. Thanks for posting!
    If I don't live my dream, who will?

    Posting an update on this miracle recipe!

    I've been using it in tea/coffee in place of dairy since November. It would have been much harder to be dairy-free without it.

    I've been gradually tweaking it...

    1) I usually use 2/3 full fat coconut milk, 1/3 water. Pours better when cold.

    2) I don't work too hard to get it frothy, partly because I don't really care if it's frothy or not, and partly because I'm very inconsistent about getting the froth...not sure why.

    3) Today for the first time I tried using olive oil instead of coconut oil (because I have 2 gallons of coconut oil to get through, but I don't like the flavor of this specific brand in something as bland as the creamer, and if I buy the coconut oil I like, I'll never use the 2 gallons for anything....!!) Worked GREAT, and I liked skipping the step of melting the coconut oil. I drizzled the olive oil in while whisking so it would emulsify, and it doesn't seem to have separated out in my coffee. I used light olive oil, so no taste. Would like to try almond oil too.

    Has anyone analyzed the recipe for carb content? I put it an nutritiondata and not sure it is correct, for 12 servings it had one carb per serving.

    Thanks, it sounds wonderful! Plus, the health benefits of coconut oil are fantastic.
