Coconut Tres Leches
Coconut Tres Leches is traditionally made with whole milk and sweetened condensed milk. I am vegan and do not use dairy when I bake. My quest was to incorporate the traditional Coconut Tres Leches with a Vegan twist. This dessert is also a great conversion starter on “what is a vegan” when I vend at farmers markets and festivals. Customers are curious about how I make a “three-milks – tres leches” dessert without the milk.
My vegan version of this delicious dessert uses coconut, almond, and hemp milk. Soaked in tres leches custard and topped with a creamy coconut frosting, the result is a coconut cake. There are no artificial flavors or preservatives in this truly delicious dessert.
Coconut or kalpa vriksha (Sanskrit for “the tree that supplies all that is needed to live”) in ancient India has been recognized as a top immune booster, an antifungal, antibiotic, antiviral and antibacterial remedy for thousands of years all over the world.
Coconuts antioxidant and health benefits include stabilizing blood sugar, lowering cholesterol and improved memory. The tres leches custard is made with a nut milk combination of hemp milk, coconut milk, and almond milk. This combination contains B vitamins, vitamin D, and magnesium all needed for energy.
Super Food Nutmeg
