  6. For the coconut cream:
    Refrigerate a can of coconut milk for at least 4 hours before cooking. The coconut milk should have been separated with the coconut liquid at the bottom and the cream on top. Scoop out the cream into a large and deep mixing bowl. Whisk using a mixer or by hand. Add a tablespoon of the syrup and a teaspoon of vanilla extract and whip again until combined.
