If you are looking for a dairy-free whipped cream replacement, Coconut Whipped Cream is it!! Very easy to make and so versatile!
For the last few months, I have been eliminating dairy from my diet and focusing on eating Clean Keto. In doing so I not only lost 15 lbs but I no longer feel bloated and sluggish from all the dairy I used to eat.
However, I do miss my heavy cream. I used to use it for my morning coffee and it made it so creamy and delicious. Luckily, I found a great substitute that has the same texture if made properly and can be used as a heavy cream replacement; Coconut Cream.
What is Coconut Cream?
What is Coconut Cream used for?
There are a lot of things you can used Coconut Whipped Cream for. Here are some examples of what I’ve used it for:
Top my coffee, like a whipped cream replacement
When I want to make “cream” based dishes
It’s a great topping for fruit, such as this Blackberries and Cream Snack
How do you make Coconut Whipped Cream?
It’s fairly easy however there are some steps you need to follow:
- The coconut cream must be chilled.
Placecan in the fridge for at least 8 hours. This separates the solids from the liquid.
- Scoop out the solid cream and put into a stand mixer. You can also use a hand mixer or a regular whisk, it will just take longer.
- Mix for about 5 minutes or until it starts getting fluffy. If it’s too stiff you can add some of the coconut water from the can.
- Add in vanilla and stevia drops if you are using them.
- Mix for another 2-5 minutes or until cream is fluffy.
That’s it!! Easy peasy!
How do you store Whipped Coconut Cream and how long does it last?
I recommend you store this in an airtight container in your fridge. It will last 5-7 days. I have never froze Coconut Whipped Cream so I don’t know if it freezes well.
You can use the remaining coconut water for a smoothie or a Keto Oatmeal. Once you open the can, make sure you store it in the fridge as well.
