Almond Paleo Coconut Cream Glaze

This thick and creamy Paleo coconut cream is not only gluten-free, but also dairy-free.  It has a rich flavor with just a hint of almond and maple. 

I set out to make some holiday treats that required a frosting or a glaze.  All of my older recipes contained cream cheese as the main ingredient.

Cream cheese in frosting or glaze is not the easiest to just remove and replace, so I set out to make an entirely new and delicious glaze!

Introducing….  Almond Paleo Coconut Cream Glaze!

While this glaze was not the easiest to photograph, the taste more than makes up for it! 

My hubby literally stood next to me with a spoon and would sneak spoonfuls.

Can I Use Another Nut Butter?

You most certainly can!  Almond butter is my favorite, but if you prefer cashew butter or sunflower butter – then have at it!  The sweetener ratio may have to change slightly as you change around the nut butters, however.  But you can easily taste it as you go and modify it as needed.

Is this Dairy Free Coconut Cream Glaze Thick?

It is thick, but it is not solid.  It is still pourable and will never reach a fully solid state. 

Glaze and Icings are usually much thinner (and more liquidy) than your traditional frosting!

How to Store The Coconut Cream Icing

If you won’t be using the full amount and need to store this, you can simply put it in an airtight container.  Keep it cold, so definitely store it in the fridge.  

Properly stored, it should last 3-4 days!

    1. Let’s problem solve! Were there chunks in your almond butter? Some almond butters are creamy and some are much thicker and chunk like. Sometimes the very bottom of the jar of almond butter gets chunky as well. These will often not soften. If your almond butter sounds like that, then you can either try to get a creamier one (mine is always very creamy to start with) or very lightly warm it up to see if it softens. The coconut milk, while solid, shouldn’t be chunky in a way that doesn’t immediately soften. Let me know!
