Recipe Notes

*This recipe can be made dairy-free by replacing the half n half with coconut milk. Also, to make homemade vanilla whipped cream, whip about 1 ½ cups of heavy cream and 2 tsp of vanilla extract in a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Add sweetener of choice to suit your taste preferences. You could also substitute coconut milk for the heavy cream for a dairy-free garnish.
