  • 1tablespoon agave syrup
  • Zest of 2 navel organic oranges
  • 2teaspoons vanilla extract
  1. Melt coconut oil in microwave or over stovetop; then place it in the freezer for 3 minutes to bring the temperature down.
  2. In a small bowl, toss chocolate chunks, 1 tablespoon chili powder, cooled coconut oil and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, toss sliced strawberries with orange juice; set aside.
  3. Open the cans of coconut cream, and carefully scoop the waxy, solid layer of coconut cream from the top of the cans and into a mixing bowl. Be sure to scoop as little of the coconut water beneath as possible. Or see tip above.
  4. Using a mixer or hand beaters, whip coconut cream on high for 2–3 minutes, until it becomes fluffy and soft peaks form. Add agave syrup, orange zest and vanilla; whip to combine.
  5. In small parfait glasses or other glasses, layer 2 heaping tablespoons coconut whipped cream, 2 heaping tablespoons strawberries and 1 tablespoon chocolate mixture; repeat layers. Finish each parfait with 1 tablespoon coconut whipped cream on top, and dust each with a pinch of remaining chili powder. Alternately, instead of layers, scoop the separate components into glasses and garnish with orange peel and a dash of chili powder on top.
