Coconut Whipped Cream

Coconut whipped cream

This is a super easy and equally delicious vegan whipped cream recipe. This coconut whipped cream is a great alternative to dairy whipped cream, getting all of its rich flavor and texture from plant sources!

Coconut milk is the base of this topping, and I recommend getting the most full fat kind that you can find. I use one from Wild Harvest, which I purchase from our food coop. I can not find it in many stores online, but it looks like it may be available from Instacart. I’m not a member, so I cannot verify that.

I use this brand.

Just find a good high-fat coconut milk. You will know how much fat it has once you open it. If you refrigerate the can, then you can scrape the cream off the top. A good full fat milk has a lot of cream. This recipe uses that cream.

The coconut milk we’ve been using has almost full fat all the way to the bottom! This is rare, but good! 👍

Note about ingredients

The ingredients for this coconut whipped cream are basic. It uses natural sweeteners, including maple syrup and stevia powder.

The cream of tartar is totally optional. I only use this occasionally when I want the cream to stay more stabilized beyond the next meal, such as for icing a cake. Leaving it out won’t affect the recipe at all.
