Notes

  1. I have added volume measurements, but I recommend you to use weight measurements if possible!
  2. To make this completely dairy free, use a dairy free cream such as coconut cream or soy cream.
  3. You can use only whipped cream as topping if you want. I like to add a little bit of greek yogurt to my whipped cream to add more body.
