If your eggs are still in the fridge when you start to make this, simple drop them in a bowl of warm water for 10 minutes (still in the shell, in case that wasn’t obvious!) 

To make coconut whipped cream – you’ll need to use a brand of coconut milk that separates, like Thai Kitchen- Pop a can in the fridge the night before. Open it upside down and dump out the liquid (save it for a curry or soup if you’d like). Scrape the cream into a large bowl and beat until smooth and creamy. If desired, add some vanilla extract, sweetener or your choice, or leave it plain.
