Chill 1 can of coconut milk (full fat) for 6-8 hours
In a mixer or using a hand blender; add a pinch of powder sugar, firm part of the coconut milk (save liquid) and 1 tsp vanilla extract.
Whip until stiff peaks on medium speed; this does take several minutes.
Notes: If you whip is chunky, add a splash of coconut liquid to smooth it out.
I like to warm the muffin in the oven for a couple of minutes
Slice muffin down the center, leaving a hinge on the bottom.
Place a dollop of coconut whip in between the two muffin pieces.
Slice 3-4 washed hood strawberries in half and scatter across the top!
