Place the canned coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight.
An hour before prepping, place your mixing bowl into the freezer to chill.
The next morning, pop open the can of coconut milk and seperate the solid from the liquid. Scoop the solid into the chilled mixing bowl and save the liquid coconut milk for another recipe.
Add 1/3 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp vanilla extract to the mixing bowl. Begin mixing with your electric mixer on high speed until a fluffy cream has formed. (Either keep it vanilla or add a bit of cocoa powder to turn this into a chocolate cream.)
Prep the berries by either slicing thin or by blending. Prep the cookies by simply laying out as is or by crumbling.
Now we begin to layer: Grab your serving dishes and start with a big scoop of the coconut cream. Be sure that it is leveled in the serving dish and then add a layer of cookies, followed by more cream, followed by strawberries, followed by cream, cookies, etc. Continue to layer until you reach the top and finish with the cream. Top with one full strawberry and maybe a sprinkle of crushed cookies for looks.
Pop the cakes into the fridge and let set for a few hours. The cream is going to "cook" the cookies to make them nice and soft - just like cake!
Enjoy and get ready to try a ton of different variations!
**I made these cakes in a few variations:
- With the cookies and strawberries intact, just sliced. This cake was very similar to the regular cakes that you are probably used to. Be sure to let this cake sit overnight before eating - it will be amazing!
- With the cookies crumbled and the strawberries blended. This cake is wonderful for easy layering and if you need the cake to be ready ASAP. Just as delicious but a different texture.
- With the cookies crumbled and the strawberries intact. This one was probably one of my favorites for looks. The crumbled Oreos and the sliced strawberries were just gorgeous.
- With the coconut cream blended with cacao powder for a chocolate look. This is fantastic for our chocolate lovers!
