TV Tuesday #20 – 3 Minute Dairy Free Coconut Whipped Cream

Isn’t it great when you find something so easy and so delicious it’s actually feels too good to be true?

Like the time I was out shopping and I found the most perfect pair of black leather open toe booties at the Nine West Store for $229.00 dollars, and then found them at Ross for $29.99. Not too good to be true! They actually were $29.99. Ok, they weren’t in my size but they were in my girlfriends size so I bought them for her. Same same. Right? I’ll just live vicariously through her feet.

So kind of like that but better, because this whipped cream is exactly my size!

It fits in my budget and in my mouth. Fantastic.

This is the too good to be true, but it actually is true, 3 minute whipped cream recipe made from coconut cream. Yes, that’s right. It’s coconut whipped cream. Delicious.

I’m actually using it to develop my next Dairy Free Real Food Peanut Butter Pie. Stay tuned for that. But first you’ll need to watch this video.

So what dessert are you going to put this coconut whipped cream on? Let me know in the comments!

    Hi France! I love this idea, but I am bummed bc I make all my own coconut milk and it doesn’t seem to work w/ homemade from dried coconut. I have talked w/ others and we think it’s b/ the coconut water isn’t in there. Really makes me sad. I am thinking we should all try to get this to work to save $$!!!! Why wouldn’t adding water do the trick??

    Wow…this is a fabulous tip and I have many ideas to use this on! I wonder if you could drain the coconut cream overnight to remove the excess water? Would that be too dry?

    • France Morissette August 23, 2012 at 12:17 am #

      Hi Linda, I don’t think it would be too dry, but I don’t think it’s necessary. Just scoop off the heavy cream that naturally sits at the top. If you try to drain it, let me know how it goes.

      Hi Mj,
      It’s pretty cool. We’ve used it with pavlova before and it was delicious.

    Would be good on fresh berries!

    I am SO excited about this! I love the flavor of coconut and think this would make for the ultimate whipped cream!

    This is a wonderful find, for sure France! Thanks so much for sharing!

    France, I can’t wait to try this. What is the brand of coconut cream you are using in the video, and where can I buy it. Thanks, Marly

    • France Morissette August 23, 2012 at 12:23 am #

      Hi Marly, I think most brands will work. I have done this with canned coconut milk, and I put it in the fridge. The cold seems to help the cream separate from the water component. Or, you can buy just coconut cream. There’s usually very little water at the bottom, and just skim the cream off the top. I’m using Wilderness Family Naturals that I get from my local organic store but I really don’t think the brand matters. I’ve tried it with several brands and it works great. Just make sure you only use the cream part, aka the very thick (almost like mayonnaise) part.

    I absolutely love the idea of coconut whipped cream–but even though I’ve tried many (many!!) times, i can never get it to whip up into anything more than a thick liquid. I used xanthan gum as a stabilizer, which does thicken it up considerably, but then you’re sometimes left with something a little gluey. There seems to be no sure-fire way to get the cream to whip up into true “cream” (ie, that you can pipe and have hold its shape–even at room temperature–just like dairy cream)! Any suggestions? Have you found a way to make it a bit more solid?

    • France Morissette August 25, 2012 at 10:52 pm #

      Hi Ricki, You will never get coconut cream to whip up as stiff as whipping cream, ie: to hold a shape when put through a piping bag. The thickness you see here in the video is pretty stiff, perfect as a topping for desserts or used in the peanut butter pie that will be featured this Sunday. The trick to getting the cream to whip up is to start with coconut cream, not coconut milk, and to scoop off the cream off the water that settles to the bottom. Use the coconut water at the bottom of the container for another recipe like a coconut curry. Hope that helps.

      We have cans rather than cartons here in New Zealand (not sure if that makes any difference), but there are 2 main things that I have found that makes it work really well. First, check the ingredients on the can/carton to make sure that there is no added water in the ingredients (just coconut cream & stabiliser). If you get a brand with water in the ingredients, it won’t work very well. Secondly, I put the whole can of coconut cream in the fridge overnight, then in the freezer for 30 minutes before I scoop out the cream. It makes it a lot thicker. Then you scoop it out, beat it, and put it back in the fridge and it will thicken further. I’ve been able to pipe this onto pikelets and it has stayed at room temp for a while. Hope this helps.

    Cool, France. :-) I experimented as follows, with great results as well. Take can of organic coconut milk (full fat, kind you would cook with) and chill. When cold, put it through blender if necessary to integrate more solid fat and more liquify part. Put in one of those whipping cream dispensers and pressurize. Voila – easy peasy. Or whip with chilled beater and bowl. I add a drop of vanilla to the liquid before whipping, but no sweetener at all, and we LOVE this. Thanks for sharing another approach for this awesome stuff!!!

    Awesome!! I’ve been trying to make it work with coconut cream for the past 8mos, but I just wasn’t getting the thick consistency, Now I know why — I was adding the water in it! Can’t wait to try it again this time w/o the water. 😀 Btw, do you think you can whip it up in a Vitamix blender? Or will it get too hot?

    • France Morissette November 4, 2012 at 5:35 pm #

      Hi Jocelyn. I don’t know it it will work in a Vitamix, I’ve never tried it because we don’t own one. Let me know if it works if you decide to try it out.
