Coconut cream is the main ingredient in this dip. It is much thicker than coconut milk and ย usually has the consistency of soften butter in room temperature which makes it a fantastic ingredient for easy and flavourful dips!

There is no cooking involved here and you can tweak it to as salty, tart, sweet as you want. The bonus? You can even tweak the thickness of the sauce to your hearts desire. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are the steps:

  1. In a bowl, add the coconut cream
  2. Squeeze fresh limes into the coconut cream and mix
  3. Finely chop up the garlic and add it to the mix.
  4. Add the maple syrup and fish sauce (or soy sauce) and adjust it to how you like it. If you like it sweeter, then add more maple syrup than fish sauce. (Note: Fish sauce is very strong in salt and flavours, a little goes a long long way.)
  5. Add dried unsweetened coconut flakes to thicken the sauce.
  6. Add a few teaspoon of milk or water to thin it out if it’s too thick.
  7. Mix it up, and enjoy with your food!



Everything and anything, but if you must choose here are a few suggestions:

  • Chips
  • Wraps
  • Deep fried crispy snacks
  • Curries

  1. i’m not a huge fan of plain chicken, but if i had this sauce to serve it with, i’d eat it alllll day long. also thinking about how good this would be with sauteed veggies, a hard-boiled egg and some rice. mmm.

    1. I did it with chips. Not sure it was that tasty with chips haha but definitely good with fried chicken and fritters! I even scooped some into my pasta sauces! The coconut cream melts into a oil and gives it a nice flavour!
