Carol Beaton

Posted by Robert Doublett

Today we remember with fondness, our friend, and visual artist Carol Kennedy.

Carol passed away this morning after a battle with cancer, but her life time of contributions will forever have an effect on Cape Breton Island.

Carol Beaton is with the Cape Breton Center for Craft and Design, they've been friends for many years.

Posted by Robert Doublett

Blueberry Honey Coconut Cups large.jpgPrep time: 8 mins
Total time: 8 mins
Serves: 12


  • 1 cup Coconut Cream Concentrate or 1 cup homemade coconut butter
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup raw honey
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup cashews, chopped (or other nut of choice)


  1. Place a small saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add your blueberries and honey. Mix to help break down the blueberries.
  3. Once your blueberries have esploded (that means exploded, but is just more fun to say that way), add your coconut oil and coconut cream concentrate.
  4. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Remove from heat and add your shredded coconut and cashews.
  6. Line your muffin tin with silicone liners or paper muffin liners, pour mixture into each cup to a height that you prefer, then place in freezer for 20 minutes.
  7. Consume.
  8. Store in freezer if you have self control.
