Whipped Coconut Cream

Yield: about 1 ¾ cups

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 5 minutes

So creamy and decadent, you’d never guess it’s dairy-free! Use it like you’d use regular whipped cream – serve over fresh berries, put a dollop on your favorite pie, I even like adding a spoonful to my morning coffee.

Ingredients

  • 14 oz can of full-fat, unsweetened coconut milk (Recommended: Trader Joe’s Coconut Cream)
  • 3 tablespoons confectioner’s sugar

Instructions

  1. Place the can of coconut milk in the fridge overnight so that the cream solidifies and separates from the water.
  2. Flip the can upside down and open the can. Since all the cream rises to the top, the water will be at the bottom. Opening from the bottom will let you drain it off easily! Pour off the liquid (drink it straight up or save it for a smoothie!).
  3. Spoon out the hardened cream into a large mixing bowl. Sift in the confectioner’s sugar. Whisk together until you get smooth, soft peaks.
  4. Resist the urge to stick your face in the bowl.

Notes

Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 weeks in an airtight container. It will firm up, just re-whip it when you need it.
