You may only think of canned food as a convenient option. After all, they are affordable, have a long shelf-life, and often require very little preparation or cooking.
However, canned food isn’t just for picnics, quick lunches or that lazy Wednesday night when you’re too tired to cook. With a little bit of time and effort, you can elevate the humble food in a can to an Instagram-worthy gourmet dish.
Here are 3 recipes that are as much a feast for the eyes as they are for the tastebuds.

Whip up this yummy dessert with Ayam Brand Coconut Cream! 100% made of fresh coconuts, this coconut cream gives your the rich delicious coconut flavour in the convenience of a can. When consumed in moderation, you can enjoy the anti-bacterial and anti-viral health benefits of coconut, due to its high concentration of lauric acid.
This simple recipe requires only 5 ingredients: coconut cream, milk chocolate, butter, egg yolks and instant coffee granules. It requires 2 hours of refrigeration to set the mousse so it’s good idea to prepare the recipe beforehand and save it in your refrigerator to enjoy later.
This is one dessert that won’t add inches to your waistline or raise your cholesterol level! The butter, eggs and whipping cream contribute about 80% of saturated fat in the recipe. Saturated fat, when mixed with coconut cream, is a healthy fat that can be quickly converted into energy.
Serve the coconut mocha mousse in clear glass and top with fresh fruit (strawberries recommended!) for extra presentation points.
