Notes
It is best to use soaked nuts but if you don't have time on your side you can rinse them and add few tablespoons of water in processor. Make sure you use BPA free canned coconut milk. It helps to use the coconut oil in your tablespoon before adding the coconut nectar due to it's sticky nature. If you want to top your cups with coconut cream just whip ¼ to ½ cup of the separated cream from the top of the can with a dash of stevia. It will not be as stiff of a topping like heavy cream but it is delicious!
