Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream

Here’s a fun fact: You can whip full-fat coconut milk into a light, airy topping the same way heavy cream becomes whipped cream with a few short minutes under a hand mixer. This is my new favorite thing until I find another new favorite thing. But for now…

How to Make Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream

  1. Refrigerate a can of full fat coconut milk overnight.
  2. Scoop chilled, semi-solid coconut into a mixing bowl. (Drain and discard any liquid! You want just the fat here.)
  3. Optional: Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup (or neither)
  4. Use an electric mixer to beat the coconut milk until it is light, fluffy whipped cream.
  5. Put on everything.

I like this with berries, over coconut yogurt, on top of ice cream and (most frequently) in smoothies.

Go forth and go nuts.
