Whipped Coconut Cream

Whipped Coconut Cream // shutterbean

Say hello to my latest obsession. WHIPPED COCONUT CREAM. I saw this recipe online a few years ago and finally made some! If you haven’t made your own whipped coconut cream, GO DO IT NOW.  If you’ve made it, isn’t it incredible?? It’s fluffy, it’s creamy, it’s sweet and it’s become my favorite breakfast/after dinner treat for the past two weeks.

It tastes like whipped cream but it’s completely dairy free.

I have a delicious recipe coming up this week that requires whipped coconut cream so stay tuned!

And we’re off!

Two ingredients to make HEAVEN. You could use vanilla extract if you’d like.

Perhaps it will mask the subtle coconut taste? I like to keep it pure & simple.

First we start with a can of full fat coconut that has been refrigerated overnight. This is essential.

The fat will rise up to the top of the can and the coconut water will be at the bottom.

I open the can upside down so I can easily pour off the water/milk.

This stuff is so good in smoothies.

Scoop out the coconut cream into a large bowl.

Get your hand beaters out and beat! Takes about a minute or two until you hit soft peaks.

Transfer to a container if you’re not ready to use the entire batch.

For those of you who shop at Trader Joe’s, their coconut cream is ALL cream. So if you pop it in the fridge overnight and try to make whipped cream, you’ll find nothing but cream. No water…just pure goodness. I highly recommend.

The whipped coconut cream will last for about a week in the fridge. You’ll find that the texture changes a bit after day one; it’s a mousse-like consistency. If you want it to be more like whipped cream, beat it again with the hand beaters.

So now what do we do with it??

Fill a bowl with raspberries & sliced bananas and top it with that whipped coconut cream!

Coconut shreds on top of all of that cuz we’re fancy. This has been my breakfast for the past week.

It is the perfect whipped cream substitute!

Whipped Coconut Cream

makes about 1 cup of cream

  • 1  13.5 ounce can full-fat coconut milk (refrigerated overnight)

Add agave and beat cream with a hand beaters until soft peaks form. Transfer to a container. Whipped cream can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to one week.

    I’m so tickled that you posted this today…I made coconut whipped cream for the first time just a couple days ago (to top some vegan hot chocolate from the Minimalist Baker) and loooved it. So good! Oh, and I just happened to have bought the Trader Joe’s coconut cream for this purpose earlier today and cannot wait to try it out!

  • I ADORE whipped coconut cream! Add a splash of vanilla extract and a few spoonfuls of melted chocolate, beat it in, and you’ve got a super easy, super delicious chocolate mousse! It’s my fave :)

  • May 13, 2014

    Nothing better than whipped (coconut) cream! It’s so good, I know. I kind of want to whip some up right now. I love this stuff! Pinned

  • Especially with the summer here, this is such an amazing way to beat the heat, or let’s say, enjoy the warm sunshine! So tropical plus it would so well on tropical fruit based cakes! Ahhhh SO MANY POSSIBILITIES!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t wait to try these!

  • May 13, 2014

    You read my mind! I was just thinking about how I want to learn how to make coconut cream, I didn’t realize it would be so simple. P.S. I am loving your healthier recipes, please keep it up! xoxo

  • This sound so good on fruit! I am about to have some leftover coconut milk, so I know exactly what I will be doing with it!

    Girlfriend, if you mix in some cocoa you have chocolate mouse. Mm hm, that’s right.

      Can’t wait to try it!

  • May 13, 2014

    This sounds so delicious! Do you know if the fat content is less than real cream (sorry, so lazy … I guess I could google this!)

      From what I’ve read, it’s pretty comparable to whipped cream as far as fat & calories. The coconut cream is slightly less fattening.

  • May 13, 2014

    So what’s wrong with mousse-like coconut cream, then? = )

  • May 13, 2014

    Ooh yum! Love that little concoction you’ve made at the end with the fruits!
    So so tasty looking- will definitely try it out as I’m slightly dairy intolerant!
    Another great recipe again Tracy!

  • I love that you had masking tape labels on your jars because that’s how my entire pantry and fridge look like for all the random projects I have working on. The Trader Joe’s coconut milk is super good!

    This looks so delicious ! Do you think honey would work as a substitute for the agave ?

    • Tracy
      May 13, 2014

      Totally!

    yum!!! hosting my mom, sis, and bf for dinner tonight and i can’t wait to feed them this + strawberries!

  • May 13, 2014

    I just made this for the first time the other day too! I added a little lime zest to it, very tasty!
    I also love how it turns in to coconut mousse after it has been in the fridge, that was a total revelation! I had the mousse with chopped fresh pineapple for dessert this evening. I look forward to seeing the recipe you have coming up!

  • I am SO MAKING THIS. I’m in love!

  • May 13, 2014

    yum and yum! it would be kind of dangerous to have a jar in the fridge week after week and yet that is exactly what I want to do.

  • May 13, 2014

    Do you think I could just make a tub of this and bathe in it? Or perhaps just a jar and rub it all over my face. I want in on this whipped coconut cream business. Oh I bet it would be magic on a lemon yoghurt cake that some fabulous lady has in her recipe archives…

    This looks super easy to make! I love healthy tasty looking recipes like these! The avocado smoothie recipe inspired me to put some avocado into my smoothie too. My only concern would be that the avocado would turn the smoothie brown if you don’t drink it the same day.

  • May 14, 2014

    Yummy! I love whipped cream and definitely wouldn’t mind a substitute for that stuff (or even just an alternative way because, why not?).

      You know it!! It makes me so happy when I see that font. xoxxoxoxo

  • First off, I’ve been opening the can all wrong. What the hell have I been doing this whole time? Silly Brian! But I do LOVE whipped coconut cream. It sort of changed my life since I a) have some friends who are allergic to dairy and b) because my parents keep a Kosher house and I had been missing something creamy to put on top of my dessert. So, yea, I’m a fan.

  • I am OBSESSED with this stuff. I literally have a can in my fridge at ALL times.

  • May 18, 2014

    I love coconut so much. I’m really looking forward to trying this, and seeing what other coconut inspired recipes you create. :-)

      You’ve gotta do it!

  • This shit is da bomb! We especially dig it on some angel food cake —yummmmmmm!

  • May 18, 2014

    OMG. I think I’m going to have to make this RIGHT AWAY! I want to put it in coffee, spread it on bread for fruit, and put it on top of ice cream. Heck. I want to eat it out of the pretty little jar labelled coconut whipped cream! Thank you for this super simple recipe and the TJ’s ingredient shout out. YAY!

    My best friend had to go dairy-free for health reasons, and will so excited to try this! Thanks, Tracy!

  • May 20, 2014

    so i just did this and it turned out like cottage cheese! not light and fluffy at all! any idea what i did wrong? I drained the water out the best i can, added a little agave and mixed in my stand mixer for about four minutes.

    e.

  • May 20, 2014

    I have never made this, but it’s so simple, I really have no excuse. I love this!

  • May 20, 2014

    Turns out I used coconut cream, not coconut milk. Ooops!

    • Tracy
      May 20, 2014

      OH!!! I was wondering! I hope it works next time around! xo

  • Camila
    May 25, 2014

    This was delicious! Thanks!

    Any ideas for what to do with the leftover water? Can I drink it like regular coconut water?

    • Tracy
      May 25, 2014

      you can! I add it to smoothies.

  • Sarah
    June 28, 2014

    I love the idea!

    I fear we have not the same quality of coconut milk in my Country as you have in the U.S. . .
    I tried, I failed. But I will try it again!

    Anyway – thanks for all the amazing food inspirations!

    Greetings from one of your biggest “Burrito-Bowl” Fans ;-)
