Coconut peach crisp is a decadent, peaches and butter pecan cake, drizzled with coconut oil and topped with coconut, pecans, and Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping. The original recipe that I adapted this recipe from, came from an older friend of mine. She told me that life would be just a little better with this recipe in my life! She was right.
Yes, you read that right, Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping is now available at Walmart! When I saw it, I had to look twice to make sure that it was really Coconut. This new flavor is perfect for my Coconut Peach Crisp. I’ve also figured out that it is really good on a lot of other desserts, as well as fruits, drinks, salads, pudding, etc. I have come to the conclusion that the possibilities are endless. I know that it is a new staple in my fridge and I’m pretty sure that once you try it, it will be a new staple in your fridge too.
When making coconut peach crisp, I use one 29 ounce can of peaches and one 15 ounce can of peaches. If you have peaches that you have bottled yourself, you can use a quart. When I use a quart that I bottled, I cut my peaches into smaller slices.
My bottled quart of peaches fills the bottom of the pan, and that is because when I bottle peaches, I really pack those peaches into the jar. Whatever you prefer, make sure that you fill the bottom of a 9″ X 13″ pan and add about 1 1/4 cups of the peach juice to the peaches. The peach juice and the coconut oil are what makes the cake mix turn into a nice crunchy topping.
Layer the cake mix evenly over the peaches.
Drizzle the melted coconut oil over the the dry cake mix.
Add the coconut and the chopped nuts evenly on top of the cake mix that has been drizzled with the coconut oil.
Bake according to recipe instructions. Let cool, then cut into serving size pieces.
Finally, add what I call, a dollop of fun. Don’t you just love how a dollop of Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping completes your recipe!?! We were so excited when we became aware that there was now Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping. It just plain puts the finishing touch on this dessert!
I love the taste of coconut peach crisp with the Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping! Who knew that coconut and peaches would be so amazing together? It is a great idea to add a little squirt on top, or a medium squirt, or even a big squirt! We have all sizes of squirts in our family. I think that I am a big squirt. I think that we love squirting the topping on top just as much as we love eating the coconut peach crisp.
I love getting together with family and so this past Sunday when we had family dinner, we had a main dish and then we had some jello with Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping on top. We also had Coconut Peach Crisp with Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping on top. It was a wonderful meal.
After we finished eating we asked each other a few questions like:
1- Would you rather be invisible or would you rather be able to read minds?
2- Would you rather be fast or strong?
3- Would you rather go without TV for a year or would you rather go without pizza?
4- Would you rather eat cookies or cake?
5- Would you rather jump into a pool of spaghetti or a pool of pudding with Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping on top?
6- Would you rather stay up all night or sleep all day?
7- Would you rather live at the beach or on a mountain?
These are just some of the fun questions that we asked. It got everyone involved and we got to know each other a little bit better. I am always looking for ways that you can get people to interact with each other. I felt like it turned out very well. By the way, it was unanimous that we would all rather jump into a pool of pudding with Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping on top!
The sky is the limit when it comes to finding out fun things about one another. Ask what are favorite pets, colors, cars, books, movies or seasons. Just like there are so many questions that you can ask your family, there are a lot of options when it comes to Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping.
Just look at the cute little shortcake cups we made. They were so simple, but so tasty and fun. You could even go without the cake and just add some of that delicious Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping to a small bowl of fruit. As I was squirting the Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping on top of the little pieces of cake, it dawned on me that one of the best things about Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping is that it is instant gratification – there is no measuring and pouring ingredients into a bowl, no whipping and no getting a spoon to scoop it; you just gently shake the can and squirt out that little dollop and enjoy a whole lot of goodness.
Since, pina colada is one of my very favorite flavors, and we had Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping, I decided to make some Dole Whips. The base of these Dole Whips were made with two very simple and healthy ingredients; fresh pineapple that we cut into chunks and froze overnight and some coconut milk. We mixed those two ingredients in the food processor and this is what we got! I loved how it made it taste more like a pina colada smoothie. I have to admit that we went a little heavy on the Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping on the top of these Dole Whips, and yes it was really tasty and fun!
We also love Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping on our hot chocolate. It makes it so nice and creamy, and again part of the fun of eating hot chocolate is the spraying on of the Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping, and yes we have been known to replenish a single cup of hot chocolate more than once with Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping.
Once again, Walmart came through for me, as I was able to find my Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping there. I was amazed at how many choices of whipped topping that they had, but since I was looking for a non-dairy option and I love coconut, I chose the Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping. It is derived from coconut milk and is non-dairy. It also has no gluten, no artificial flavors or artificial sweeteners.
Coconut flavor was perfect with all of the choices that I chose to add the Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping to. I would still have to say that the Coconut Peach Crisp was my very favorite thing to put the Reddi-wip® Coconut Non-dairy whipped topping on.
Tips and Tricks:
1- Make sure that you have enough peaches to cover the bottom of the 9″ x 13″ pan.
2- Don’t skimp on the peach juice.
3- Use a Butter Pecan cake mix. (I found mine at Walmart with the other cake mixes).
4- I also used unrefined coconut oil, but I do not feel like it makes a big difference if you do not want to use unrefined.
5- If you do not love pecans, you can always use walnuts or regular peanuts We have used all three, different times, and my family loves them all, however pecans are our favorite.
6- Make sure to let the Coconut Peach Crisp cool before serving.
