I saw this photo on pinterest and thought it was completely adorable! Getting blank silver cans like these would be easy at a craft store or Walmart! Along with colored paper that themes your wedding or you could spray paint them for a more “country” look. This would be so cute for a backyard wedding or a park wedding! Get colored forks,knifes etc that match your wedding colors to put inside with a colored soda! Super cute and easy to make! For the names if you want that to be the favors for the guest just make these little cards on the computer – like Microsoft word and print them out and glue em’ on!

INGREDIENTS:

Put cream cheese, virgin coconut oil, and coconut cream concentrate in medium mixing bowl and set in a warm place to soften.

In a separate bowl, add the tablespoon of warm water and about a quarter of the heavy cream to the coconut to moisten.

Once everything has softened, beat the cream cheese mixture and gradually mix in the sweetener, salt and vanilla extract. When well mixed gradually beat in remaining heavy cream, then the moistened coconut. Beat mixture until light and fluffy.

Crust: Sprinkle about 1 generous tablespoon of the chopped nuts over the bottom of each of three 8 oz plastic deli containers, 8×8 baking dish or other containers of your choice.

Spoon cream cheese filling into prepared containers.  Sprinkle a bit of flaked coconut on top to decorate. Cover and refrigerate until firm. Each cheesecake makes about four average servings or 2 to 3 larger ones. Enjoy!

Black Bean Burger Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 (15-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained, divided
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 teaspoons freshly chopped parsley leaves
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Optional Toppings:

  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • 4 small Romaine lettuce leaves, or any other type you have on hand
  • 1/4 cup ketchup

Directions

Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-low heat.

In a food processor, pulse onion and garlic until finely chopped. Add 1 can black beans, cilantro, parsley, egg, and red pepper flakes and pulse to combine.

Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl, add the remaining can of black beans and the bread crumbs. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and mix until well combined.

Reserve 1/3 of the black bean mixture for Round 2 Recipe. Divide remaining mixture into 4 portions and form into patties.

Top with lettuce, tomato and ketchup. Cover the burgers with the top of the bun and serve.
