Sweet Coconut Cream

Our Sweet Coconut Cream is a sweet, creamy, dairy-free topping for pancakes in place of butter. You may find your pancakes won't need anything else, except perhaps some sliced fruit, to go on top. Try the cream with our Zany Last Minute Upside-Down Pineapple Pancakes that come with their own fruit!
