Double this recipe to make 1 dozen cupcakes. Coconut cream is the thickest, richest, fattiest part of coconut milk. Look for cans of coconut cream at the store; Trader Joes has one for under $2––and you can also buy the coconut water there. If you cannot find coconut cream, buy a can of coconut milk (full fat), and set in the refrigerator overnight before using. The coconut cream will settle at the top of the can. Discard the remaining liquid, or use in other recipes. If your dates are dry, soak them in coconut water for 30 minutes before blending.
